National Honor Society, 2nd and 4th Wednesdays

Adviser: Laura Penrod 

Room: Cafeteria 

In the spirit of the holiday season, NHS plans a festive activity to end the semester.

“We usually try to do something fun for our last meeting,” President Angeline Roldan said. “We will be making little gingerbread houses and have a competition on Instagram to see whose looks the best.”

The members will be receiving a reminder of volunteer hour requirements and expectations.

“Before the semester ends we’re just going to do our general reminders,” Roldan said. “In the middle of the year before the semester changes we usually check if everyone is on track with their 20 hours.”


Meteorology Association, 1st and 3rd Wednesdays

Adviser: Jessica Kelly

Room: H207

Meteorology Association’s last meeting of the semester serves as a celebration of their successes they’ve had thus far. 

“We plan to go over our accomplishments this semester and start talking about what we have planned for next semester as well,” Chief Meteorologist Brian Price said. “We want to just have a bunch of food, hang out and enjoy the last week of the semester.”

Plans for a fundraiser after winter break are in the works.

“We want to have it [fundraiser] with CrunCheese probably next semester in January,” Price said. “We can put that money towards our funds that we have received thus far from the Nevada Department of Education so that we can save in preparation for future years and we don’t have to rely on too much on fundraising in the future.”


Polynesian Club, 2nd and 4th Wednesdays

Adviser: Rachel Guichard

Room: C101

Poly Club is ending the year with a Tahitian dance lesson.

“We have a total of eight students that will be joining us and it’s open to anyone who wants to join or just wants to learn and dance,” President Ghiada Ferraer said.

The club plans to participate in future school wide events.

“For certain we will be participating in the future Winter Fest being held by BSU and StuCo,” Ferraer said. “We’ll host a cup pong stand with fruit punch. Four people will be able to play per game with $1 per person, so $4 in total to play.”
