Culture Club

The SCHS Culture Club promotes diversity and equality in our school and community. We welcome all students to come and join in our mission. Meetings are posted on announcements and posted on the door of room 2100. Meetings are during resource and all you need to do is show up. Some activities include homecoming events, fundraisers, an end of year field trip and monthly updates on cultural history.  This year we are planning on a demonstration to educate our students on the meaning of Pow-wows and other Native American traditions.  Culture Club also encourages our students to give back to the community by ringing the Salvation Army Bells at Christmas, holding food drives for the local food pantries, Toys for Tots, our schools mitten tree and helping a family with Thanksgiving dinner just to name a few.  The main fundraiser to help do this includes our “Famous Indian Taco Sales.”

Destination Imagination

Our purpose is to inspire and equip students to become the next generation of innovators and leaders. Annually, we offer seven new standards-based Challenges in Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, Improv, Visual Arts, Service Learning, and Early Learning. Each Challenge enables student teams to learn and experience the creative process from imagination to innovation while also learning 21st Century skills for the future. Each team enters the competition at one level (elementary, middle, or secondary) depending on the grades of their team member, and has chosen to solve one of five Central Challenges.

SADD Club

Originally, the mission of the SADD chapter was to help young people say "No" to drinking and driving. Today, the mission has expanded. Students have told us that positive peer pressure, role modeling and environmental strategies can prevent other destructive decisions and set a healthier, safer course for their lives. And that is why SADD has become a peer-to-peer education, prevention, and activism organization dedicated to preventing destructive decisions, particularly underage drinking, other drug use, risky and impaired driving, teen violence, and teen suicide.  SADD's mission:  To provide students with the best prevention tools possible to deal with the issues of underage drinking, other drug use, impaired driving and other destructive decisions.
