Carefully folding and checking the directions, junior Rediate Hunde makes origami for service hours during a general HOSA meeting. Clubs offer service opportunities during club meetings to help members get their hours. “The activity was pretty fun to do and I ended up making a butterfly,” Hunde said. “Out of all the activities they’ve offered for hours, I think this one was my favorite.”

HOSA, 2nd and 4th Tuesdays
Adviser: Cynthia Wong and Cassandra Trummel
Room: Cafeteria

As the end of the school year approaches, HOSA reinforces the due date for service hours.

“The final 40 [service] hours are now due April 29th instead of April 5th,” president Aeron Pearson said. “We decided this so that members can still participate in in-person opportunities and our two new donation service opportunities: one will be hospital donations and the other is for Project 150.”

HOSA is also preparing a fun activity to end off the school year with its members.

“We’re planning to have our End of Year Banquet on April 19 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Ballroom,” Pearson said. “Members will have a fun evening filled with dinner and dessert, speeches by board members, awards, and time to mingle. We hope to have a huge turnout.”

FCCLA, 2nd and 4th Tuesdays

Adviser: Levi Harbeson

Room: E126

FCCLA prepares for its first general meeting after its state competition.

“At the moment we plan to just resume general meetings after state,” president Violet Moreno said. “We’ll also begin informing our members about how to prepare for board elections.”

Members will have the chance to begin running for positions after thorough preparation.

“We’ll go over the options for campaigns and interviews,” Moreno said. “We want to have this first meeting to begin discussions, then continue with the next meeting on speeches as well as voting for members.”

Key Club, 2nd and 4th Wednesdays 

Adviser: Michelle Kenwood

Room: Cafeteria

Key Club plans to have a positive attendance meeting where members will have the opportunity to gain credit for attendance, which can account for any unexcused absences they’ve had or for any they may have in the future.

“Our 50-hour requirement will be due two days before the meeting so we decided to account for this with a positive attendance meeting,” president Ella Abilar said. “In doing so, we hope to give our members a breather since they’ve been working so hard and we’ll be doing activities like karaoke.”

Members will be rewarded for their hard work and success in completing their service hours.

“Congrats to all our members who have completed their hours,” Abilar said. “In return for their dedication, [they] will get to attend an April Banquet celebrating their accomplishments.”
