Education is more than textbooks, examinations, and report cards—though these obviously play a key role in teaching and learning. The goal at Archbishop Hannan High School is development of the total person and student activities help to address this goal.
Every Hannan student is encouraged to participate in a co-curricular activity, requiring time and commitment on his or her part. Our goal is that students acquire knowledge about themselves through working with others and cooperating with students of different interests, backgrounds, and personalities toward the attainment of a common goal. This is an extremely valuable experience. Our hope is that there is “something for everyone” to be found in our diverse activities programs. The vast majority of these clubs and activities are formed by students with particular interests and skills.
Creating a Club/Student Activity
The process for forming a club is very simple. A student should pick up a Club/Activity Application in the Main Office, petition a faculty member to serve as the club moderator, and if the club or activity is approved and a faculty member agrees to moderate, the club or activity is formed. We distinguish between clubs and activities in several ways.
- An activity is just that: a specific activity that might be seasonal (Food Drive, Dodge Ball Tournament, etc.) and does not necessarily require officers, a budget, etc.
- A club organizes with officers, by-laws or a constitution, and regular meetings. These students may pursue a year-long “agenda” of activity, study, action, etc. (Speech, Debate, Robotics, Math Club etc.).
Clubs and Extra-Curricular Programs
The wide variety of programs and offerings our school provides give students the opportunity to develop and improve skills, explore new interests, and build friendships. These activities also challenge students to prioritize and balance schedules. We encourage you to check the school calendar and explore the many facets of the Archbishop Hannan Experience!
