Students flocked to the SPHS main gym for the annual student-led Club Rush on Tuesday and Wednesday, Sept. 11-12. Students explored the various booths while club members advertised their organizations. Many clubs created eye-catching display boards and posters while other clubs flourished flags and banners.
This annual event allowed students to explore the many activities offered at SPHS and enabled them to pursue their interests as well as broaden their horizons with a diverse array of clubs. Commissioner of Clubs senior Sage Pierone approved a cumulative total of 96 clubs this year, exceeding the last school year’s record. Clubs such as TASSEL and SkillsUSA garnered much attention, drawing long lines of eager students. In addition to these experienced organizations, numerous new clubs were founded this year. Despite being new, these groups were able to attract many students’ interests as well as prove their potential at SPHS.
“It is very challenging sometimes to set up things from scratch, especially when we have little or no experience,” English Language Development (ELD) Club secretary sophomore Jessica Li said. “However, through the contributions made by each co-founder, we ended with sweet results. I’d say that [Club Rush] is one of the most significant events I’ve ever been in since going to SPHS.”
