When going through high school, it’s important to stay involved and connected. Sometimes though, it’s hard to decide what to do before or after school.

Future Farmers of America (FFA) is a student run organization that develops work skills like speaking, business, and everything involving agriculture. “One of the main goals of FFA is to help students realize potential in different fields,” says FFA Coach Timi Reynolds. Agriculture isn’t just farming, but also involves resource management, energy, forestry, general business skills, and leadership skills. FFA travels a lot and can be very fun for those who don’t like to be in one place for too long. “Can O’ Treating,” is on the 31st from 6:00pm to 8:30pm where the members of FFA will go around town and ask for canned food or nonperishables instead of candy. They meet on the second Tuesday of each month at 6:30 in Reynold’s room.

FFA isn’t the only club at NC though. There are still plenty of other options.

Dungeons and Dragons (D&D) is a place for students to get together and just have fun. While D&D is mostly what goes on, people can still play card games, like Magic the Gathering, or maybe something less strategy based. The amount of members speaks for how fun it is. “You can be someone that you always wanted to be in D&D,” said club president Quinn Casner.(11)  They meet in the cafeteria on Wednesdays from 3:30-5pm.

Book club is where students can connect with each other, while reading the book they want to, and then just talk about it as they read. Not only that, but they provide snacks. Mrs. Wetzel hosts this club and students are able to select books they want to read together. They meet every other Wednesday from 3:30 to 4:15 pm at the tower.

National Honors Society is for students who want to help out those around them the best they can. Whether it be community service or being kind to everyone they see, just to see the smiles on their faces. Be warned, though, as a 3.5 GPA and at least 2 advanced or honors classes are required. They meet on the first Wednesday of the month during lunch in room 1006.

Student Council is all about trying to help students fit in. Promoting sports, clubs, activities, and events to help everyone at this school feel like they have a place. Being able to contribute to that can feel good. Want to see even a little change? This is the place to be. They meet at 6:30 am in the library on Tuesdays.

Distributive Education Clubs of America (D.E.C.A.) is a learning experience for everyone. They can learn critical thinking, business skills, and how to be entrepreneur. When students want to learn how to start a business, they should begin here. They meet every Friday during mustang connections. 

ESports club is a good choice for students who are talented at video games like Rocket League and Fortnite. Or maybe not, but want to learn how to be. They meet on Tuesdays in Ms. Monzón Paz’s room.
