Club Rush Day a Success

By Daniela Galindo

JGHS had an energetic and festive day on Thursday, September 15 thanks to Club Rush Day, which gathered students in the quad. A total of 13 clubs participated, some of which offered snacks when you joined the club or when you followed them on social media, such as the Key Club which gave out lollipops, AVID and CSF clubs which gave delicious chocolate, and the Journalism Club which handed out chips.

If you have strong opinions you should consider joining the Debate Club; or if you are looking to get community hours, CSF, AVID, and Key Club can help you with that. Joining a club will make your High School experiences unforgettable. In the clubs you can meet people that have the same interests as you, for example the Anime Club. 

During the event, Mr. Wroten played an important role as the DJ. Thanks to him, it was a very energetic event. Students were singing to the songs whether they were at the club tables or having lunch somewhere else in the school. It would have been sad to hear the bell ring, meaning the club rush had come to an end, but the DJ made the great decision to play “El Caballo Dorado,” a song that everyone knows and dances at parties. It didn’t matter what everyone was doing because they stopped to dance to this song, students were happy to see Dr. Padilla and other staff members take part in this dance.

Press Release courtesy AVID and Ms. Veronica Lorenzana

To commemorate National College Week, which is during our Thanksgiving break, JGHS and SEA will be celebrating it a week early, beginning Monday, and lasting from 11/16-11/20.

To promote a college-going atmosphere, the AVID Program will post a daily College Awareness Flyer to let students know about various college topics. We would love it if you can help promote College Awareness in your own digital classrooms in the following ways:

  • Wear your College Gear next Week, especially on Wednesday.
  • Reminder to students: take that leap and press “Submit” on your college applications, preferably this week: The deadline to submit the UC app is 11/30; the deadline to submit the CSU app on CSU Apply has been extended to 12/4.
  • Your SAT/ACT scores will be optional and no longer be required for Fall 2021 admissions! (Future admissions of standardized test scores are still TBD).
  • Talk to your counselor if you never thought about attending college but would still like to apply.

Thank you for your support!
