Here at Ashley Ridge (AR), our teachers love to get students involved and enthusiastic about the new school year. But how do teachers get a bunch of exhausted teenagers to get excited about school? Clubs!

There’s such a variety of clubs to choose from and every student can be a part of something that will make their year great. Being in a club gives a student a lot of opportunities: meeting new people with the same interest as them, being able to speak comfortably about what they love or believe in, gaining leadership skills, and expanding their resume for their future employments.

A club fair was held on September 5th. If you didn’t get to attend, or didn’t see the club you wanted to join, it’s not too late! You can find a list of the clubs with their respective leaders below:
