North’s Club Showcase unveils new and established clubs for students to join


North’s Club Showcase, held from February 19-24, aimed to introduce new clubs to the student body while bolstering existing ones through officer-led presentations and promotions.

According to Chinese teacher Star Lew, club coordinator, the initiative primarily targeted new clubs eager to recruit members and promote their missions. 

“The club showcases are mainly for our new clubs, and recurring clubs as well, so they can present who they are, especially these new ones who want to recruit people and want to promote what it is the club is going to do,” said Lew.

The showcase, originally scheduled for the first semester, was delayed due to teachers’ work-to-rule restriction, which made it difficult for advisers to oversee clubs. This restriction was lifted when a new educator contract was secured in February.

According to Lew, even though the showcase was late this year, she hopes students will still be interested in joining the clubs offered.

“We do want students to take advantage of participating in activities and clubs,” she said.

For many clubs, the showcase provided an opportunity to reach a wider audience.

“You get to show the club to a bigger group of people than you normally would,” said junior Ciara Evans, an officer for The Hidden Opponent Club. “It’s not just your friends, it could be anyone in the school to bring people together in your club.”

Club officers created posters and small gifts like candy or stickers, as well as demonstrations unique to their club to prepare for showcase day. 

“I made this live demo that’s basically the project we’re going to do at our next meeting,” said sophomore Emily Chen, officer of the Girls in AI club. “And then yesterday, I had lollipops with little cards attached to it that said ‘join Girls in AI’ with the Schoology QR code.”

Chen added that there have been big groups visiting their tables. 

“Yesterday was pretty good, a lot of people came by. And even if it’s just for the lollipops, it’s good just to get the word out. It’s good that people are aware of our club,” said Chen. 

Evans added, “I hope it’ll bring together a lot of people that wouldn’t normally hang out with each other and I hope we get a lot of people to join the group.”
