Chess Club
Led By:
Mrs. Serrurier
Chess Club is for anyone interested in developing their chess skills or just wanting to learn the game.  We meet weekly after school from November through February.  During that time, we also compete against other schools' chess clubs.  Our goal is to play in the State Chess Tournament in February.  This is a great opportunity for any chess player.  


Drama Club
Led By: Mrs. Rebmann
Drama club includes all students who participate in the fall play, act as madrigal servers, march in the parade as "big heads" and costumed characters, participate in the spring musical, and those who help the community and the grade schools by acting, teaching acting, and assisting with make-up at concerts.  We have provided "Elsa" at birthday parties, superheroes at the grade schools, and even Dora the Explorer at the Pumpkin Festival.


Math Team
Led By:
Mr. Zeller & Mr. Zehr
The ICTM High School Math Contest is competition at its very best -- an exciting, challenging contest where the students are stars.  The team spirit and enthusiasm generated by this contest have all the competitiveness of a sport tournament.  Students participate in both individual and team competitions at the regional and state level.  

Scholastic Bowl

WYSE - Worldwide Youth in Science/Engineering
Led By: 
Mrs. Holmgren, Mr. Young, Mr. Zeller, & Mr. Dunn
The Academic Challenge is a competitive series of tests created and administered by Worldwide Youth in Science and Engineering and offered to high school students in Illinois and Missouri. The tests are now offered by more than 50 community colleges and universities and are designed to present a challenge to the brightest students.

Test material is drawn from senior high school and freshman level college curricula. Written by teams of college and university faculty, subjects include biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering graphics, English, mathematics, and physics. Each test production team produces three tests of increasing levels of difficulty, regional, sectional and state finals. Students compete as individuals and as part of a team (when their school fields a team); they have 40 minutes to complete multiple-choice tests that range in length from 30 questions (computer science) to 100 questions (English).
