A- Art Club meets Tuesdays in room 245. If you don’t know where that is, just follow the artwork near the cafeteria.

If you enjoy DIY crafts, helping the community with creativity, and teamwork, this club is for you.

N- National Art Honors Society, or NAHS, is a step up from art class and art club. NAHS is for students looking to use art to interact in not only the community, but the city, state, and even other countries using art. To join a team who works hard on service-based art projects, students must have at least 2 years of art experience from Fossil. To join, head to room 245 on the second Tuesday of every month during lunch.

P- Philosophy Club may sound complicated, but if you’re interested in discussion and intellectual conversation, it is simply to enhance critical thinking skills and logically ground yourself. If any of that made sense to you, head down to room W108 on Thursdays and Fridays from 3- 4:30 after school.

T- Technical Theatre Club draws in students that are interested in what goes on behind the scenes of theatre- such as lighting, sound, and technical equipment required to set the stage.

W- Writers Guild is a club focused on honing student’s writing skills and giving them a time to just sit, write, and relax. Write songs, stories, plays, poems, books, or a passage in your journal and share with your peers to get constructive criticism to improve your writing. If you’re interested in hearing guest speakers and having a time set aside for writing, come to room N207 on Wednesdays and stay from 3-4 pm.

Of course, these aren’t all the clubs available at Fossil. If none of these applied to your interests, browse many more here. If you still have yet to find a cub that involves your interests, try to make a new one! Fossil’s student led clubs are just as successful and fun to join. Here at Fossil, students are top priority. To do so, see Mr. Nye in the North Wing office. Have fun and enjoy being able to learn life skills and make some new friends in the process.
