Cypress clubs having fun and displaying passion for the groups they are in.

Cypress High clubs have been bustling with activity.

In the Poetry Club, anticipation ran high as members gathered to elect new leaders for the upcoming school year. After hearing small speeches but heartfelt promises, students cast their votes, all eager to see the new club leaders guide the club’s artistic endeavors.

Meanwhile, the Theater Club made waves on Social Justice Day with its thought-provoking performances, shining a light on important issues facing society. Their upcoming musical, High School Musical On Stage, will be choosing cast members and rehearsing to perform for everyone in early May.

In a powerful collaboration, the GSA Club and OC Bridges are joining forces to raise awareness and support for LGBTQ+ rights in the local community. They aim to foster inclusivity and understanding, making a meaningful impact on those around them and allow everyone around to be aware of issues within the community by hosting small events to bring up problems that come with being an ally or a part of the community and empower those who are LGBTQIA+.

In the Environmental Science Club, students have been nurturing the school garden, cultivating vibrant lavender blooms that they eagerly shared with their peers to bring in more greenery and keep the school eco-friendly. Their dedication to sustainability and eco-consciousness serves as a reminder of the importance of caring for our planet and preserving its natural beauty.

Meanwhile, in AP Environmental Science, students have been deeply engaged in Civic Action Projects, applying their knowledge to address pressing environmental issues and enact positive change in their communities. Their initiatives demonstrate the power of education and activism in shaping a brighter future for generations to come.

Key Club poured in their efforts to set up pancake services to bring joy and nourishment to the school community on February 10.

Best Buddies also held a holiday party on December 14. It formed connections for students to gather and watch the beloved movie, Elf, with a room full of laughter. They decorated cookies and had pizza for dinner, with hot chocolate to celebrate the holidays. 

Many clubs participated in Social Justice Day like GSA held a Truth or Myth game, Girls Inc. had goodies to encourage girls to join the group, Theater was doing slam poetry and more in the theater, and many more. Lynné Vargeson (Poetry Club president) said, “I love that we have Social Justice Day to help future generations learn about these issues.”

As the quarter draws to a close, these clubs stand as testaments to the power of community, creativity, and compassion. Though their activities vary, their collective impact resonates far beyond the walls of the school, helping and encouraging the students who encounter their endeavors.
