       Club Rush took place on September 14,  where students can join and interact with a variety of clubs. Each of these clubs presents opportunities for kids to grow as people in many ways. In clubs, you can be yourself, ask questions, be funny, be serious and all without being judged. When joining clubs you can meet new people and grow a bond with them. Many kids are filled with excitement and eager to join. Taft has different kinds of clubs with different kinds of opportunities. There is a variety of clubs, for example, Sex Squad, Jewish club, Chess Club, Unicef club, and Knights and Ladies, etc. Joining a club would not only make your days better but it will also make your high school experience better and it will look good in your college applications. Glad to have seen clubs promoting themselves as well as an opportunity to show off what makes this campus great !!

    I totally agree and would say that joining a club is a great experience and a great way to get to know new people and make new friends. I have been in the Robotics Club for the past 2 years now with my friends and it’s been absolutely great and very fun! I would say that anyone who is interesting in joining a club should totally go for it!
