Arapahoe High School’s reputation is built on our high academic standards as well as our high expectations for student involvement in Athletics and Activities. With a list of almost 40 clubs that continuously grows, every student at Arapahoe can get involved. Many clubs have a large membership and all clubs expect their members to be very involved. Students can find opportunities to explore their interests, contribute to the community and become leaders within the student body.
If a student is interested in starting a new club at Arapahoe High School, please stop by the Activities office and visit with Mr. Hawk. If the club is feasible, and meets the requirements of Board Policy, the student will need to find a sponsor/monitor and fill out an application. Our hope is that we will continue to expand the list of clubs offered at Arapahoe High School. (LPS Board Policy Student Clubs and Organizations (MS Word))
Student committees, under the supervision of adult sponsors and with approval from the Activities Director, plan social events. School dances and other major events are sponsored by classes, clubs, or other student organizations. Activities will be advertised on the bulletin boards and TV monitors throughout the school as well as the announcements over the intercom. The sponsoring organization is responsible for publicizing the time, place, cost, rules, and other specifics of each event. To begin planning an event, fill out an Event Approval Form.
The leaders of our clubs and activities are a group of dedicated faculty sponsors and monitors. Club sponsors and monitors recognize that our students are passionate about the activities that they participate in and lead -- it requires commitment, hard work and long hours beyond the school day. The reward is in seeing students thrive doing something they truly enjoy.
Please note that most clubs have open enrollment throughout the year. The "Clubs" Link lists all of our clubs, the club's sponsor, meeting times and a description.
Thank you for your interest in Activities at Arapahoe. Studies continue to show that extra-curricular involvement creates positive relationships between students and adults, and contributes directly to college entrance and success. I look forward to working with you here at Arapahoe!
