  • **NOTE**

    NAIS Clubs are offered throughout the school year. Some clubs are held all year and others are held for a quarter or time period through the year.  Club sign ups will begin during the month of the September.  Signs up will be posted to the school webpage and Schoology. Club advisors will maintain a Schoology page with meeting dates, information and other supplies you need. Once a student is in the club, the student will be added to that course and both the student and parent will have access to important club information. The Schoology course will be the main source of communication with the club advisor.

    Club meeting dates are an estimate. After the students are registered the advisors will reach out with a more accurate schedule.
