Athletics and Activities Corner
Talking about feelings and hardships can be intimidating and challenging, especially for high school students. Often, students have difficulty expressing themselves and being understood. The purpose of the In Touch Club is to provide a space in which students can support each other while processing a wide range of experiences. These experiences range from unexpected changes or exciting milestones to social justice topics and the day-to-day struggle of being a high school student, but there are no limits!

With the help of the club supervisors, the students learn to transform their shared experiences into positive change. All the while enjoying some snacks and a lot of laughs! If you're interested in joining, you can email Ms. DaSilva (Ms. Lu) or Mrs. Pearson.
