Clubs & Activities

All students are encouraged to become involved in the numerous activities and clubs at the school.

Many of these activities are scheduled at the beginning of the school year and relate to physical education, fine arts, curriculum enhancement, civic responsibility, and leadership development.  Some of these activities are outlined below:

CLUBS:

  • Art
  • Book
  • Citadel* ($235)
  • Comic Book
  • Computer
  • Founding Cultures
  • GSA
  • Improv* (Team fee $50)
  • Musical Theatre ($50)
  • Pop Culture

Teachers are often approached by students who have creative ideas for new clubs and groups.  Past examples include the Chess and Scrabble Club, the Craft Club, the Games Club, Movie Club, Peer Support and Sewing Club.  If you would like to start a new club, put together a proposal and ask a teacher to sponsor you.  It’s a great way to meet new friends and make productive use of your lunch hour!

Athletics at Avalon include a lunch hour intramural program. Intramurals run September through June, Monday to Friday from 12:38 to 1:03 p.m. The activities are organized by grade.
