REGINA HIGH SCHOOL CLUBS AND ORGANIZATIONS – 2018/2019
Regina High School sponsors a number of non-athletic extracurricular activities and we encourage student participation in these programs. Through active involvement, students form new friendships, develop physical and mental potential and help to build school spirit and pride. Students should also be aware that colleges consider extracurricular involvement, academics and community service when making admissions decisions.
The following clubs and organizations are open to student participants, but some may have stipulations or requirements for joining. Please listen for daily bulletin announcements and check club bulletin boards for information concerning club meetings or contact the moderators for further details.
