The clock strikes 3:30 pm flooding the hallways with students, but once the locker rush subsides where will you go? Are you itching to get outdoors? Or are you looking for a non-competitive and fun way to exercise and stay-in shape? Do you want a means to channel your creativity energy? With more than 20 after-school activities and clubs at TMA, deciding what to join can be daunting. Here’s your guide to navigating the clubs fair that will take place next Thursday, September 15 after school in the cafeteria. If you’re looking for a creative outlet to dance, sing, or act try the Drama Club with Mr. Lloyd. Rumor has it they will be producing and performing the WIZ this year.
Listen up outdoor enthusiasts because there’s something for you. Do you have a green thumb? Returning this year is the student-initiated and favored Green Club spearheaded by Ms. Lee and Ms. Fried who are already cooking up secret plans for a live compost system in the garden. If you like the Green Club, you might also try out a new shade of green—TMA Unplugged: The Wilderness Club (brought to you by Ms. Horn) which will expose students to the world outside the city through activities such as hiking, camping, rafting, and wilderness safety training. Weekly skills trainings and local outdoor trips will conclude with an end of year camping trip. Want to experience nature’s beauty but scared of the risks? Not to fear because The Wilderness Club is for all students regardless of comfort and expertise.
Also new on the menu this year is Treasure Hunts (sponsored by chemistry teacher Ms. Enrich) that will give 11th and 12th graders the chance to apply critical thinking and problem solving skills to solve scavenger hunts throughout the city.
Old Favorites including Book Club with Mrs. Hanson, Fitness Club with Mr. Barton, Art Club with Ms. Shabbaz will also be returning this year. Still unsure what to choose? Attend the Clubs Fair this Thursday, September 15 after school in the cafeteria. The possibilities are endless!
