Clubs are a great way to get involved and meet new people on campus and there are around 65 different ones students can choose from. If a student is new to Perry and wants to get involved, Mr. Ames encourages them to “Come see us and and get a list of the clubs first”.  The reason behind this is there are so many clubs offered on campus many students don’t know that half of them exist. Clubs can also be very beneficial because many lead to volunteer opportunities and possible scholarships.


One of the bigger clubs on campus is drama club. There are almost 100 members in drama club and it is still growing every week. The club is involved in many fun activities throughout the year such as putting on the haunted house for the homecoming carnival. They are also very involved in the community by volunteering with different organizations such as Feed My Starving Children and Relay for Life.  Drama club president Emily Woodward-Shaw says “Students should join because It’s a place to allow someone to be themselves” and “A great way to meet new friends.” Drama club meets every Wednesday after school in the auditorium until 3:30pm.


There were around 8-10 new clubs added on campus this year with one of them being American Sign Language club.This club is a great way to be involved in the Deaf community and learn more about Deaf culture. ASL club president Emily Wright says “The club will consist on games to increase our knowledge of vocabulary and fingerspelling”. ASL club is great for anyone who has always been interested in learning sign language but has never had the opportunity. The first meeting is September 22nd after school until 3:00pm in room C211.


Perry also offers clubs on campus that almost no other school has such as the bad movies club. In the club, students watch terrible films, eat snacks, and have fun getting to know one another. Teacher Randy Duren supervises the club and encourages students to join because “Nobody is going to judge you because we are all busy judging movies instead.” Bad movies club meets every other block conference in D104.


There are so many clubs offered on campus every student is sure to find one they enjoy. High school is not just all about academics, it is also about making memories and having a social experience with one’s peers before they graduate. Being involved in a club might also inspire one’s career when going off to college. All clubs are welcoming to any Puma who wants to join.  So join a club, meet some new friends and have some fun!.
