Admissions Ambassadors is a club that revolves around the admissions department at the school. As an Ambassador, you give tours to prospective families around the school. This can take place during our morning open houses, or one big information session in the evening. The ambassador program is great for getting service hours and increasing public speaking ability. The program has a budget set entirely for fun activities or the occasional sushi/pizza. The club is a great activity to have on your resume but if that is the only reason for joining you shouldn't come to the introduction meeting. We want people who enjoy the school and want to share that experience. We don't have streamlined statements, you can speak about whatever you feel most passionate about. The introductory meeting will be on September 24 at 12:30 in Room 209.

In the beekeeping club, we take care of several hives of bees and meet twice a week. The club does regular hive inspections, where we don our bee suits and check up on the whereabouts of the queen, nectar and pollen stocks, and much more.
