DSA Students, why not join a club?
Joining a club is a great way to meet other students with similar interests, have fun, gain leadership opportunities, or get volunteer hours (all good for building your college resume!). And it won't break the bank! Teachers at DSA currently sponsor more than 20 clubs!
You can click this link if you are interested in a club listed below, but unsure how to join after watching the club's informational video.
Is your favorite activity not on the list? Start your own club. Request the form from Ms. Nkenge at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your completed request will require approval by Mr. Hawks. You will need a plan and a teacher to sponsor the club. Many clubs get their start this way!
