99% of Central Catholic students are involved, thanks to dozens of student organizations, clubs, and teams.
Many of those organizations are planning activities for the 21/22 school year. Here are a few of our student organizations that are getting started for this school year.
Language Clubs: CCHS is proud to offer multiple, active, and engaging language clubs: Spanish Club, French Club, and Latin Club. Our language clubs are very popular with our students as they offer immersion into different cultures and meetings are fun. The French Club is kicking off a new year. There will be a French Club meeting for all interested students this Thursday, in room 207 at 7:35 AM. We will be discussing officers and future activities. For information on Spanish Club, please see Sra Carlson and Mr. Powell for information on Latin Club.
Speech & Debate: What do our students have in common with Brad Pitt, Bruce Springsteen, Oprah Winfrey, Nelson Mandela, and JFK? They have the opportunity to participate in Speech & Debate! For decades, CCHS has had an award-winning team, impacting hundreds of students. Speech and Debate will have a meeting this Thursday (Sept. 9) for anyone who is interested in becoming a part of the team this year. Anyone who is interested should come to an introductory meeting this Thursday at 7:30 am or at 3:00 pm in room 208. See Mrs. Harris for more information or watch this intro video from the National Speech & Debate Association: https://www.speechanddebate.org/explore-membership-students/
Cast: A service organization that is held before school which allows any student to get involved in helping others. Cast is always doing different activities to help keep students engaged and so that every student can find an activity that they enjoy. For more information and a list of meetings please stop by and see Mr. Vincente.
Vigil: Students are already hard at work on the 2021-2022 Vigil. Documenting each year is an important job, come help preserve memories! Anyone that is interested in helping with the yearbook should see Miss Sharnsky in room 218.
Community Service: Every student is asked to fulfill service requirement hours. Learning to help others is an important component of a Central Catholic education. We are happy to help students find opportunities to serve others.
