Overwhelmed by the Number of Clubs Offered at South?

The Academics

LAW: “In Mock Trial, students participate in a ‘fake’ trial: they are assigned the position as a witness or a lawyer for either the prosecution or defense. Most of the students are interested in law, but the club can also be for kids who merely enjoy public speaking or debating.” -Rachel Brenner, junior

LANGUAGE: “The American Sign Language Club allows students who take sign language and those who don’t to improve their signing skills and learn more about the deaf community. Students have the chance to perform in competitions such as ASL Idol and meet members of the deaf community, too. Students can have fun, meet new people, and learn a new language.” -Danielle Kraes, junior

The Arts
ART: “The Art Club focuses on how to use the arts to inspire and support people in our community and the world. On a local level, we have painted three different murals here at Great Neck South. On a global level, we have painted portraits for orphans in Ghana and The Philippines with the Memory Project Organization and created paper cranes for cancer patients with Cranes for Cancer. Each year, we decide as a group what organization or art project we are most inspired about for the upcoming year. All are welcome!” -Ms. Katie Saltoun, Art Teacher

MUSIC: “MCO stands for Music Community Outreach. We play music for hospitals, senior centers, the Ronald McDonald house, and many more. Anyone who plays any type of instrument—or sings—is welcome to join. We try to perform with an electric repertoire, from classical to jazz to pop, and overall, it’s a nice, fun thing to do: to play music to help the community.” -Annabelle Ng, senior
