Creation of clubs

After finding a club advisor you go to the ASB office to complete the club creation paperwork.

There are a few steps to create a club here, which includes first finding an advisor, which is so important.  Assistant Principal Ms. Patti Myszkowski talked about that Royal welcomes all kinds of clubs on campus. Clubs are categorized under the 4 A’s- Academics, Arts, Athletics and Activities. Most of the clubs are considered Activities clubs. Clubs on campus must be student organized (a teacher cannot create a club) but must have a staff member advisor, usually a teacher. 

After a student finds an advisor to support their club, they must fill out a club application in the ASB office. The application states such thing such as the purpose of the club, the people involved, and when the club will meet. A club constitution (set of guidelines) must also be submitted. A minimum of 15 members is required to start a club, and membership of 15 or more is required to stay active. Once the application is complete and submitted to ASB, it is sent to the ASB cabinet for review. Sometimes ASB will question the purpose of the club, or if the club is similar to one we already have. In those cases ASB cabinet either asks the student to come to an ASB meeting to speak regarding the club or to resubmit the packet again with more information. 

That being said, students around campus have many ideas for new clubs. Senior Emily Almanza said, “I would like a sign language club, a nail club, and a make-up club.” Her idea was to have things involving glam and a language. Principal Mr. Michael Hall said, “I would like a Model United Nations Club.” Both students and staff had a lot of different ideas of clubs that they would like to be involved with. Junior Megan Medrano said, “I would want an art club, I would go all the time.” This goes to show students and staff want clubs that they like and find enjoyable to them. This is why it is favorable and excellent for students to create a club using their imagination and creativity.
