Clubs

Springstone gives students many opportunities to build new interests,  relationships, and discover new skills. One such way is by signing up for any club they choose, however they must choose a club and remain with that club for the quarter. Homework club is the exception; students are welcome to attend on a drop-in basis. Springstone will, at times, recommend that students attend homework club regularly. 

  • Art Club

    Students engage in a variety of crafts; drawing, painting, sculpture, mask making, and more.

  • Dance Committee

    The place to plan and organize the high school dances. Students in this club are responsible for raising money, creating a theme, purchasing decorations and food, and setting up/cleaning up every dance.

  • Friday Games

    Join us Friday afternoons to end out the week with fun and free time before heading home.

  • Girls' Group

    Typically in this population there are fewer girls. This club provides our girls with the opportunity to connect and address challenges specific to them. The club also provides the girls a place to do “girly” things; paint their nails, bake cupcakes, shop, and talk.

  • Homework Club

    Our students are invited to stay after school to get some extra guidance on their homework assignments before they get home.

  • Guys Group

    Come hang out with the guys!

  • Strategy Games

    In one of our more popular clubs, students have the opportunity to learn and practice such games as chess, go, and Risk.

    Join the Anime club where we do fun things like watch anime movies and discuss anime and manga! Have once in a while events like bring in your manga collection and trade! Show off your knowledge with trivia games, play video games, come join the Anime Fun!

  • Sports Club

    Students will be involved in various non-competitive games and learn the foundation of various games, from basketball, to lacrosse, to volleyball! Students will also work on foundational skills for games and learn how to work with a group!

  • Drama Club

    Students who take part in the drama club will learn the elements of drama, be introduced to the world of competitive interpretation, learn about theater etiquette and the audition process, and partake in individual, partnered, and group performances. This club will primarily be a hands-on and on-your-feet club. Students will use a lot of improvisation during the small activities and learn how to stay in character if any improvisation will be thrown out there.

    Explore different cultures from around the world through different modalities: Literature, art, current events, and language!

Special Events

 

Winter Dance

A chance to practice social skills in a more formal setting, try out some new dance moves, and have fun with friends.

Prom

The Springstone School invites all grades to attend our Prom. Students are required to dress formally and use proper etiquette as they dine and dance with friends.

Volunteerism

At The Springstone School, we believe that transition is not something a student prepares for in their 12th-grade year, but that transition starts now.

 

Transition is an ongoing process and we want our students to have as much experience as possible in the community where they will live and will someday work in. Therefore, in addition to our Access Program, we emphasize community service and volunteerism.

 

Middle school students are provided with a number of volunteer hours throughout the year. Students are expected to complete 40 hours total outside of school.

 

Many hours are completed as part of our ACCESS program while at Springstone, but they are still required to seek out hours on their own. In some instances volunteer jobs have have become paid employment opportunities for our students while they are still attending high school.

 
 

College Guidance

At the Springstone School, we very strongly believe that transitions start now. At the beginning of 9th grade, each student is assigned a counselor. The counselor and the student collaborate to create a detailed Transition Plan which sets goals for each student so that they are prepared for life after graduation. As part of our Access Program, students complete career inventories and explore aptitudes throughout their high school years.

All juniors and seniors spend a week visiting local college campuses and other post high school programs. As part of that visit, our students are introduced to the Disabled Student Services (DSS) office in the event that they will seek some of those services when they enroll. Students also receive help from their counselor in filling out their applications. Springstone is an approved testing site for the PSAT, SAT, and ACT for students with approved testing accommodations.

PARENT CLUB

Springstone’s Parent Club is to build community among Springstone families, students and staff by fostering communication and parent engagement, by providing resources, support and recognition and by organizing community events that provide opportunity for families to become better informed and more connected.
