Back to School Night is full of anxious parents learning about their students’ academic year, but there is more that goes on behind the scenes. While the parents are in their children’s classes, their students have the chance to learn about the dozens of clubs that will operate this year.
The club walkthrough, located in the media center, showcases the clubs’ platforms and achievements on trifold boards to attract new, interested members.
Caio Goolsby, a senior and member of the It’s Academic team, had an entertaining night at the showcase.
“I love being able to see the great variety… from the Korean club to the engineering club, [this event] shows how diverse the Centennial population is.”
Aria Ma, the founder of Centennial’s Green Club, takes the opportunity to display her club and introduce new opportunities to new students.
“[This event] allows freshmen and their parents to learn about opportunities… to engulf themselves in the community, and to meet new people,” Ma said. She enjoys talking about her club to interested freshmen, trying to help them figure out what their interests are for the new school year.
“This event makes me feel welcome… and more a part of Centennial,” freshman Allen Yang commented. Freshmen and seniors alike had an exciting time at the club showcase; either exploring new opportunities at Centennial or showcasing their interests to other eager students.
