Clubs, Musical Groups, Honor Societies and Athletics
2021-2022

WRHS offers many extracurricular activities for students. If a student wishes to form a new club, the student must download the Application to Form a Club, fill it out and bring it to the main office.

Below is a compilation of clubs and athletic teams at Wachusett Regional High School. Although many of the clubs listed will run, some are entirely dependent on the interests of the student body. In addition, new clubs are formed almost every year. The requirement for forming a new club is to get the permission of the Principal and secure an advisor for the club who must also be approved by the Principal.

Members may post flyers around the building announcing meetings or information can be broadcast over the school’s public address system during each day’s morning announcements by filing a written announcement and getting the advisor’s permission for the announcement to be read. All announcements read over the PA in the morning are also posted on the school’s website. Morning announcements may be emailed to the main office secretary or written on a piece of paper with staff approval signature and given to the main office secretary. Completed forms may be left there for the approval of the Principal.

Clubs

  Agriculture Club (Mr. G. Chandonnet and Mr. Whitmore)

Our goal is to provide students with the opportunity to learn about and gain experience in cultivating plants, working with chickens and more. The club will raise environmental awareness and responsibility through sustainable practice. Club activities will include: planting and harvesting produce within school courtyards, raising laying hens, tapping maple trees for sugaring, growing pumpkins for community events, hosting workshops in agricultural topics, and implementing sustainable practice within the school. We will meet during the 40 min activity periods (one per month, during the school day) and on Thursdays from  2:10-3:30, in room C 133.  For more information contact Greg Chandonnet at greg_chandonnet@wrsd.net & Dan Whitmore at daniel_whitmore@wrsd.net

AppDev Club (Application Development) (Mr. G. Chandonnet)
Welcoming those with minimal or maximal experience, any students interested in the fields of programming, app development, app design, or just general technology should certainly plan on attending! In our club, we plan to mimic the ways of the infamous Cornell AppDev project team. A normal meeting of our Wachusett AppDev club would consist of instruction regarding the Swift programming language, exploration of numerous app development and technology career paths, and of course, programming and creating original iOS apps! The creation of these apps will require constant collaboration while keeping the end goal in mind, which will in turn lead to a great end product: a functional, visually-appealing app for a local nonprofit, a local business, our school, or even ourselves!
Initial club meetings will be held over Google Meet, although we will be discussing the possibility of future in-person meetings. Some type of Apple computer is also recommended (to code by yourself), but definitely not required to make an impact on the app development process!

Dungeons & Dragons (Mr. Korandanis,  Ms. Hazel) 

Unlike a game of make-believe, D&D gives structure to the stories, a way of determining the consequences of the adventurers’ action. Players roll dice to resolve whether their attacks hit or miss or whether their adventurers can scale a cliff, roll away from the strike of a magical lightning bolt, or pull off some other dangerous task. Anything is possible, but the dice make some outcomes more probable than others.
In the Dungeons & Dragons game, each player creates an adventurer (also called a character) and teams up with other adventurers (played by friends). Working together, the group might explore a dark dungeon, a ruined city, a haunted castle, a lost temple deep in a jungle, or a lava-filled cavern beneath a mysterious mountain. The adventurers can solve puzzles, talk with other characters, battle fantastic monsters, and discover fabulous magic items and other treasure” (Dungeons & Dragons).
The goal of this club is to collaborate as a team to defeat a different scenario each time you play. Whether you’ve played before or not, stop by and join the club!  This club meets Monday afternoons from 2:15-3:30 in C027.
