2 mins read

During Thursday Flex, students set up tables on the Green to represent different groups and fun activities at M-A, preparing for another spirited Club Rush. Here’s what some club leaders had to say about their clubs and what they do. 

Current Event Discussion and Activism: “Our club is about community philanthropy, especially helping out the communities in the Peninsula and M-A families. We work alongside many charities such as the Ecumenical Hunger Program, which is where M-A donates their canned foods to.” – Freshman Niklas Klemmer

Mental Health Club: “We meet three times a week just to talk about anything. If you have something you want to share, you can, but it’s totally up to you.” – Sophomore Lia Lev

Pacific Islander Club: “Our club brings recognition to islander cultures. We dance during International Week and that’s one of our bigger events.” – Senior Alia Vunipola

Short Story Club: “Our club is about building and writing fictional work. Sometimes we have themed games and give candy out, but it’s really just to enjoy yourself.” – Sophomore Kim Pols

Students to Seniors Club: “We focus on creating relationships with the senior citizens in our community by being pen pals.” – Sophomore Lexi Nelson

Pen Pals: “We write notes to children with special needs, to encourage and support them.” –  Sophomore Ella Yee

Intercambio: “We are a club that encourages people to speak with each other and learn each others’ languages. It’s been around for ages at M-A.” – Junior Carlos Myers-Ascendio

Design Club: “We are a new club and our main purpose is to make design accessible to everyone.” – Sophomore Lilah Chen

Tech Club: “Tech Club is a great club where you can meet people with similar interests in theater tech, and also get hands-on experience and work on the M-A shows. I joined freshman year because my sister asked me to join, but I’ve been in it ever since and really enjoyed it.” – Senior Myla Butzlaff 

Asian Culture Club: “Our club is about celebrating Asian cultures. We celebrate holidays, traditions, and history. Our club is really fun: we play games, eat Asian food, have snacks, … and we really encourage anyone interested in learning about Asian culture to join!” – Sophomore Claire Chang

Disability Awareness Club: “I feel like this school needs awareness, especially for kids in the Independent Living Skills program.” – Freshman Lucy Lunt

Leo Club: “We do community service. We work to serve the community, especially veterans, senior citizens, people in need throughout the community.” – Senior Drew Nelson

Karaoke Club: “We meet during lunch and sing karaoke. I started this club because I’m in the choir and I love it so much. I know so many people who love to sing but may not have time for things like choir, so I thought that starting a karaoke club might help give people an opportunity to showcase their talent.” – Sophomore Kirsten Trihy

Deaf Culture Club: “I feel like people should be more aware of deaf culture. There are a lot of misconceptions surrounding it.” – Sophomore Faith Schubin

Alternative Journal Club: “Our club focuses on alternative methods of creation and art. We try to highlight people of color and the LGBTQ+ community. I was inspired to start this club because I wanted more voices to be heard and expressed in different ways with no restrictions.” – Senior Elizabeth Rosales[vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_link_target=”_self” column_shadow=”none” column_border_radius=”none” width=”1/1″ tablet_width_inherit=”default” tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid” bg_image_animation=”none”][vc_gallery type=”flexslider_style” images=”75095,75091,75094,75093″ onclick=”link_no”][vc_column_text]Find information about M-A’s clubs and how to join them here.
