Clubs are a wonderful opportunity to become involved in multiple activities within the school. It is time to begin thinking about the clubs you are interested in joining. Clubs will be meeting either during an advisory period, before school, or after school. Students can sign up for a club at the concession stand before school, or during lunches. There will also be sign-up sheets on the sponsor’s door. Sign up no later than Friday, September 6!
The following clubs are available at West Davidson this year:
FCA: The Fellowship of Christian Athletes is a club dedicated to see the world impacted for Jesus Christ through the influence of athletes and coaches by focusing on integrity, serving, teamwork and excellence.
