All About Clubs
There are many different clubs and activities offered through Muscatine High School. Some are
popular with many members, such as Student Council, and some are small with only a few members.
However, each club is important to the High School and adds character to who the students are and
each of their individual interests.
S.O.A.P., otherwise known as Students of Active Prayer has been active in the school for about
five years now and is a club all about Christian values and is known as a place where students can come
to pray and talk about all the issues in their life. Sarah Turner, a senior and also one of the leaders of
S.O.A.P., said, “I want S.O.A.P. to be a club where no one feels judged and can just freely come to pray
and talk about whatever might be on their mind.” S.O.A.P. meets every Thursday night during the school
year at alternating members’ houses.
Spanish Club is well known club throughout the Spanish department. Many students who are
taking Spanish classes like to join Spanish club to further their horizons in Spanish and have an outlet
outside of the classroom. The Spanish club has “fiestas” and “Las Lomas” nights frequently and is a great
way to learn more about Spanish culture and the language. Mrs. Kroll, the teacher who is in charge
of Spanish club said, “Spanish club is a fun time!” Spanish club meets every Thursday morning in Mrs.
National Honor Society, also known as NHS, is one of the more “prestigious” clubs of the High
School. Students must maintain a 3.5 GPA and volunteer a certain amount of hours in order to stay
a part of the club. National Honor Society can be found volunteering in many activities and events
throughout the community of Muscatine and is a great way for a student to become involved. Rachel
Lobianco, Vice President of NHS, said that, “NHS is a great club to be involved in because it helps shape
you into a better person.”
Young Republicans is a relatively new club at the High School, as it has only been active for two
years, including this present school year. The students meet during Homeroom, alternating between
Tuesdays and Thursdays. They have been involved in a food drive for the overseas troops and in
volunteering for the Iowa Caucus. I, myself, am a member and think it’s a great club to get involved in,
to learn more about politics and your country as a whole.
With so many clubs at Muscatine High School to choose from it can be a hard decision.
Whatever club you do end up choosing, you can’t go wrong.
