ASB CLUBS AND ACTIVITIES

Bellevue High School is a member of the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA).  Bellevue is proud to offer students the opportunity to participate in a number of clubs and activities.  If you are interested in participating in one or more of the following clubs and activities contact the Activities Office, Activities Coordinator or the appropriate advisor.

The BHS website contains updated information about current ASB clubs. You can review them by clicking on “ACTIVITIES” on the main page (see previous page for website address). There is also a posting of all the current clubs with locations and meeting times posted in the Commons.

 

Associated Student Body (ASB)                                                                        Advisor:  Elizabeth Scott

The ASB takes on a tremendous responsibility not only to serve their fellow students, but also to represent BHS.  The work of an ASB Officer is an essential part of the well being of the entire BHS community and they accept significant responsibility for the direction our school will take in the coming year.  Serving as an ASB Officer may be challenging, but it’s extremely rewarding and the leadership skills learned and used are essential skills everyone needs. Elections are held each spring and are open to all grade levels.

 

Class Officers                    

Class Officers are elected to serve their peers.  From running class meetings to sponsoring class events, the officers are dedicated to making everyone feel welcome at BHS.  Class officers, like ASB Officers, are called to service and while the position is sometimes challenging, the skills learned are valuable and the work is rewarding. Elections are held each spring and an officer serves for one year.

 

National Honor Society

National Honor Society is a selective club that revolves around student’s academic achievement and service to their community. Bellevue High’s current NHS chapter has about 60 members who complete community service projects (at least twice per quarter) and tutor other students who need help.

Acceptance into NHS requires a cumulative GPA of at least 3.75, 40 hours of community service, and extracurricular activities that highlight leadership and scholarship. Students may apply in the spring of their sophomore year. The application process is lengthy and requires students to provide adult supervisor verification (signatures) of participation in community service and activities.

 Candidate applications are available in late February from the NHS advisor, Mrs. Florsheim. Listen for NHS application announcements mid-February.

 

 

Want to start a new club?

Get a club charter form across the hall from the Activities Office, Ms. Hurley’s room.  Then complete and turn into the Activities Office. New charters are for any new clubs.  Returning clubs use the club charter renewal form.  The ASB officers have a board meeting weekly to discuss and approve or decline club charters. Clubs need to have a teacher adviser, at least 6 members and a clear mission that fits within our school mission and goals. We have four main areas clubs fall under:

  • Athletic (groups like Water Polo and Lacrosse) – these need administrative approval
  • Academic (groups like Math Club, Japanese Club, etc.)
  • Educational (groups like DECA, Barque, Beacon, GSA, etc.)
  • Service (groups like National Honor Society, Key Club, Peer Mediation, etc.)

Starting a club is easy and a great way to get involved and develop your leadership skills.

GETTING INVOLVED AT BELLEVUE HIGH

Most students at Bellevue are involved in sports and/or clubs.  They help build our school community and allow students to explore their interests while developing their leadership skills. We encourage all students to find something that they are interested in and then try to stick with it for several years. Bellevue High School offers many after-school activities and clubs. Most clubs meet weekly, although some are much more active than others.  Any student can start a club by recruiting an adviser and some other members.  All clubs must complete a charter each year and get approval from ASB.  Visit the club adviser listed below to find out more information about the club and how to join.  Also, make sure to visit the Activities Fair in the Commons during lunch at the beginning of every semester. Get involved at BHS and make a difference in our school and community.
