Doctor Who Club–We will be watching episodes, discussing the love of all things Who and enjoying the Doctor’s trip through history!  Club participants will have the opportunity to learn about time travel, ethics of life and how things are different “across the pond.”  No previous experience with the Doctor necessary, just a love of learning and the ability to figure out “wibbley-wobbley, timey-wimey stuff.”

Sponsor: Mrs. Madsen

Louder Than a Bomb – Louder Than a Bomb: Great Plains is the biggest youth poetry festival in the Midwest, fostering an understanding and appreciation of poetry for thousands of students each year in dozens of Nebraska high schools and middle schools. Students work closely for months with one of our community’s finest poets, who help them write, revise, and rehearse original individual and group performance poetry pieces. Students do all this while finding common ground in a safe space with their peers. This is a performance oriented club, so we will host live events during the year, and we will participate in the regional competition in the spring. (No prior knowledge of poetry is necessary.)

Sponsor: Mr. Horton

Project Unify – Students of all abilities have the power to positively impact their school communities by promoting social inclusion. Special Olympics Project UNIFY® provides opportunities for young people of all abilities to be leaders in their schools and communities by promoting equality and acceptance.
