Skills like commitment, leadership, effective communication, and being able to work successfully in a group all come from participating in a club or organization. Joining a club is a great way to make friends, develop leadership skills, and boost your college resumé.

  • Otter Pals

    Sponsor: Ms. Perez 

    Otter Pals is an inclusive program at our school that focuses on acceptance and diversity.  It is comprised of select students who have unparalleled patience and love.  These students spend time in our Special Program classes making a tremendous impact on the lives of students with varying disabilities. They assist with practice and participation around the school campus and execute a variety of science and sensory projects during their weekly classroom visits.  These students are mentors, but most importantly, friends. Our cluster program invites students from the general education classroom and integrates them into the cluster classrooms to teach social skills, increase confidence, and most importantly, teach acceptance. Our cluster students are visited by their Otter Pal twice a week for 30 minutes. This program is a great opportunity to educate students on the importance of accepting one another, gaining a greater perspective, understanding different abilities, and developing respect for others!
