Some of the best ways to get involved in school can be playing a sport, participating in activities, or joining a club. Clubs are a great way to stay invested and give you a chance to meet and work with people you share common interests with. There are over 20 clubs here at KHS, and here are some of the few featured ones.

 

Yearbook

  The Yearbook Club is an exciting club that completes the newest edition of the school’s yearbook, called “The Rambler.” Through the procedure of doing this, you’ll learn about layout designs and working with computers. If you enjoy photography or are interested in technology, graphic design, or even just getting involved, then this is the perfect club for you. Around Halloween, there is always a costume parade, and every year the yearbook staff is in charge. Yearbook Club is held on Wednesdays from 5-6pm with Ms. Hunt.

 

Student Council

 This club is a great way to show your interest in the school’s’ affairs and to discuss among several people how to help change and benefit the environment of the students in the school. Each year, student council is in charge of the blood drive and spirit week. This year, they are hosting a fundraiser with a staff vs. students basketball game. Senior Marran Oakman, co-president of Student Council, mentioned she loves being a part of it “because I get to be active with the school and community, and it’s nice coming together with different grades and being able to get to know the students at KHS.” Student Council is held every Monday night at 7pm with Mr. Viola.

 

Captain’s Club

  Officer Carney is in charge of this club, and the kids involved in captains’ club promise to not partake in alcohol or drugs throughout high school.

 

Peer Helpers

  The Peer Helpers are a group of sophomores, juniors, and seniors who go on several retreats, where they are trained in referral and listening skills. Each student works to try and help the students feel safe and comfortable within the school. They are known for their great school spirit and are very welcoming to try to create a positive school climate. Every year, the students are involved help with freshmen orientation and create the hoops for hope fundraiser. The meetings vary, but are normally are held every other Thursday with Ms. Carlson and Mrs. Roy.

 

Girl Talk

  Girl talk is a group of high school girls that, on one late start Wednesday a month at 8am, go to the Middle School of the Kennebunks. They do activities and get to know some middle school girls. The club is run by Mrs. Lamontagne.

 

Model State

  Model state is a club based on mock government and politics that is run by Mr. Follansbee, who takes a group of nearly 30 people to Augusta for the weekend. Members work on writing bills and attend three caucuses in October and beginning of November. When the weekend rolls around, all of the students go to the state capital and learn how the Maine legislature works. Before this weekend comes, you are able to write your own bill that will be discussed among all of the delegations.
