Ju­nior High Rams En­joy An­nual Rush Of Cam­pus Clubs

The Oakdale Leader - - NEWS -

The Oak­dale Ju­nior High School cam­pus was all abuzz on Fri­day, Aug. 24 as a to­tal of 13 clubs and or­ga­ni­za­tions set up shop for Club Rush.

The an­nu­ally hosted event aims at pro­mot­ing cam­pus clubs to in­crease stu­dent in­volve­ment on cam­pus. This is the sec­ond year the event has been pre­sented to the Ram stu­dent body.

“The goal of Club Rush is to pro­mote cam­pus clubs to stu­dents here at Oak­dale Ju­nior High, so that they can be in­volved in the ju­nior high ex­pe­ri­ence out­side the class­room,” event or­ga­nizer and teacher, Erin Ben­bow shared. “It builds re­la­tion­ships, fo­cuses on com­mu­nity school ser­vices, and builds the bridge between clubs/or­ga­ni­za­tions from ju­nior high to high school.”

Both sev­enth and eighth grade lev­els are in­volved in the lunch time event of­fer­ing am­ple op­por­tu­nity to visit each of the booths and in­quire on those of in­ter­est. Club ad­vis­ers who are teach­ers in charge of the clubs of­fer guid­ance to the club of­fi­cers who are stu­dents. Clubs typ­i­cally meet on des­ig­nated days dur­ing the lunch pe­riod or af­ter school.

“The stu­dent body has a pos­i­tive outlook to Club Rush, because they get an idea of all the avail­able op­por­tu­ni­ties Oak­dale Ju­nior High has to of­fer,” Ben­bow said.

Given the task of mix­ing it up, Oak­dale Ju­nior High Vice Prin­ci­pal Cather­ine Medlin tum­bled the names and then called out for lucky Ram raf­fle win­ners at Oak­dale Ju­nior High’s Club Rush last week.

Oak­dale Ju­nior High stu­dents had the chance to visit a va­ri­ety of booths dur­ing the Club Rush event last Fri­day. The event is geared at in­tro­duc­ing the stu­dent body to the vary­ing clubs of­fered at the cam­pus.
