On Friday, September 10, St. Luke’s Upper School clubs kicked off the year with the annual Club Expo. Kate Parker-Burgard, Director of the Center for Leadership, shares details about the expo.
Student leaders enjoyed a beautiful morning on the lawn as they enthusiastically pitched their clubs—twenty-five in all—to peers. Covering a broad range of themes, there was something for everyone at the club expo. Long-standing groups such as the Chess Club, Service Board, and Model UN were joined by newer clubs, including Mind Matters, Building for Nonprofits, Speak Up, and Healthcare. As usual, we anticipate more clubs being formed as the year gets underway, but today’s event was an inspiring start.
I love the new ideas that students bring and the energy around all of these interests! Clubs are such a wonderful way to lift up student leadership, as students learn what it takes to organize and manage a group engaged in a common project.
This afternoon Upper School students received a link to sign up for the different clubs. Parents can see the list of current clubs on our website. We’re hopeful that many students will participate in clubs this year!
