SFHS Club Info, 2019-2020

(Clubs are listed in no particular order)

WAVE is a student-driven club that promotes student wellness and improves school climate by providing mentorship to middle school students and peers at SFHS.

Devil’s Advocate
Devil’s Advocate is a debate centered group in which members attempt to argue different perspectives. At each meeting a topic is presented to the group. It is to your advantage to speak first as no two people can argue/hold the same perspective on the predetermined topic. So if you want to argue your own perspective or stance on the topic, it is up to you to speak up right away. If you do not speak right away, you may have to argue an opinion that is not your own.

Sponsor: Ms. Spurgeon (Student founders: Jordan Ortega and Cristhian Tierney)
