Request a New Club

Needham High School Extracurricular Activities

NHS Extracurricular Activities Purpose Statement: Extracurricular activities at Needham High School are an integral component of the comprehensive educational environment and provide students with opportunities to develop social and emotional competencies, teamwork, leadership, creativity, and service to the community. Student clubs and activities enable students to be self-aware, to have social relationship skills, to self manage, and to make responsible decisions. New clubs must align with this purpose statement.

Club Activities During the Hybrid Model

Please note that all club meetings and events will be virtual at this time. Clubs are not allowed to meet in person at this time. Advisors will host all club meetings.

Requesting a New Club

Before you submit a request for a new NHS club:

1. Determine if a similar club already exists

Please look at the Directory of existing clubs to see if there is a current club that aligns with your interest.  Sometimes joining an existing club can have a bigger impact than starting up a brand new club.

2. Find out if others would like to join you

Determine if there are other students who share your interest or hobby and would like to be in the club. Ask your friends if they would like to join and help you get the word out. Consider having a meet-up after school to see if others would like to join. You will be asked for a list of students who are interested in the club on the New Club Request Form (below).

3. Plan Your Club

Once you have decided that you would like to request a new club, take some time to plan out the details of the club. How does the club align with the overall Extracurricular Activity Purpose Statement above? Who will be the club advisor? When will the club meet? These are all questions that must be answered thoroughly in the New Club Request Form (below).

4. Complete the New Club Request Form:

5. Make an Appointment

After you submit the form, you will be sent a copy of your New Club Request Form along with a SignUpGenius link. Please sign up for a meeting time. The purpose of the meeting is to speak with Mr. Ford and student leaders about the new club request.
