Art Club

Art Club consists of extra curricular activities after school that incorporate individual interest in the media a student would like to work with and possibly has not had the opportunity yet to do so. Additional instruction time for any art project that the student is working on will be provided. Chaperoned trips may include local museums and venues to view artwork and trips to artist’s studios to watch the production process. The main goal for Art Club is Exposure, Exposure, Exposure!
 
Book Club "Page Turners" - Lisa Brakel, Advisor

All Airport High students and staff are welcome to join this newly formed group.  We meet once a month to discuss a book or books that we have chosen at previous meetings to read.  We are planning community projects such as reading to students at Sterling, helping with a project at the Carleton library and possibly reading to Senior Citizens.

Cerebrum Center

Cerebrum Center is an Honor Society for students who earned a 3.33 grade and above.

Chamber Choir – Robert Vandergriff, Advisor

Chamber Choir is a select group separate from the high school choir and meets three days a week after school throughout the year.  This group consists of twenty openings and is by audition only.  Chamber repertoire consists of music for the advanced singer. Many of our students however, sing in both ensembles. Many students are also coached privately in voice as well.   To build friendships in the classroom, the choir also holds choral parties throughout the year. 

DECA – Teresa Millican, Advisor

DECA is a club open to all students at AHS.  DECA has impacted the lives of more than ten million students around the world since it was founded in 1946.  DECA enhances the preparation for college and careers by connecting school projects to businesses and the community while promoting competition. Although DECA was just established in 2013 at AHS, this club has made its mark around Michigan receiving “Thrive” and “Achievement” Awards for their efforts and development as a chapter.  Basically, AHS DECA will meet twice monthly after school.  DECA members work on community based and public relation related projects determined at the beginning of the school year by membership. DECA members are encouraged to take business/finance/marketing related classes as many projects are incorporated into the classroom activities.  If you like to volunteer or want to get in on the design/developing of a successful school store think about joining.  DECA members help sell spirit wear at sporting events, share creative skills, and promote school spirit throughout the district.  Is this the club for you?  

GSA Gay-Straight Alliance – Jennifer Whitelaw, Advisor

The Airport High School Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) is a student-run organization that meets every month.  Any current AHS student can join the club at any time. GSA members work to discuss issues pertaining to gay/lesbian students and their friends, as well as encourage students to be more understanding and tolerant of others who are different from them in any way. GSA gatherings are a safe place to talk and interact with others while remaining true to the self you want to be. GSA elects its own officers who act as student liaisons for the good of the organization. GSA members may participate in fundraisers to allow for trips to non-AHS events, club events, and holiday parties.

Interact Club – Ashley McFadden, Advisor

The Interact Club is available to all at AHS and is dedicated to helping students realize the importance of community and volunteerism.  Students participate in activities involving school service, community service, and international community service.  Interact sponsors several fundraisers each year to help with our service efforts, such as the annual Race for Relief, Feed the Needy, Angel Tree, Bell Ringing for the Salvation Army, Shots for Victory and the Easter Egg Hunt.  An annual induction ceremony is held each year to officially welcome new members.  Students pay a one time application fee of $5, and are required to attend meetings and actively participate in service events in order to keep their membership current.

Key Club - Dan Savel, Advisor

The Key Club, sponsored by Kiwanis International, is an organization that provides service to the community.  The Airport Key Club is run by students with the help of a teacher advisor.

Some of the projects we participate in include Cleaning up the Courtyard of the school, Operation: Entertain Our Troops (in which books, magazines, and games are sent to the troops in Iraq), and Breakfast with My Friends to raise money for Relay For Life.  Every year we participate in the 30 Hour Famine.  During this event we fast for 30 hours in order to raise awareness of the hunger problems that are present in Africa. 

National Honor Society – Amanda Karavas, Advisor

The Loren E. Eyler Chapter of the National Honor Society consists of AHS Juniors and Seniors who maintain a 3.5 grade point average, complete an initial requirement of 6 hours of community service and three hours each month thereafter, and have no discipline issues.

Students seeking membership must complete an application which addresses the four tenets of Society membership:  Scholarship, Leadership, Character and Service.  Applications are reviewed by the Faculty Panel, which consists of the HS Faculty members who select the students.  An annual Induction Ceremony is held in November of each year.

National Honor Society meets once a month and completes a group project each month.  Projects include blood drives for the American Red Cross, bell ringing for the Salvation Army, and selling butterfly pins for the Cancer Connection.  In addition, NHS donates money to charities with the proceeds from their various fundraisers such as the annual Food Auction.

Newspaper – Laurie Rousse, Advisor

Newspaper is a class/club.  Students have to be pre-approved through an application process. Once accepted, they are in charge of running fundraisers and developing the entire yearbook, start to finish, every month using the program "InDesign."

Quiz Bowl – Matt Koleszar, Advisor

Any student at Airport High School is welcome to try out for the Airport Quiz Bowl Team.  Students compete as a team in a “Jeopardy-style” contest against other schools in Monroe County in a tournament using trivia questions from all school subjects.  This team is formed toward the end of the first semester, has bi-weekly practices in the second semester, and the competition is held in April.

They are also hosting a memorial dinner at the end of November for AHS students who have passed away in recent years. They have a Christmas activity planned and will also do a project for prom. 

Spanish Club – Angela Moore, Advisor

Spanish Club is a geared toward students studying Spanish, but welcomes any Airport student.  This group meets and holds an activity about once a month.  These vary from field trips to Toledo or Detroit, Christmas caroling in Monroe, to fundraisers to defray the cost of our activities, crafts, and community service.  We encourage parent involvement in the way of driving and chaperoning events.  Our main purpose is to understand the Hispanic culture and experience it first hand. 

Student Council – Laurie Rousse, Advisor

Students interested in being part of Student Council are pre-approved through an application process. Once accepted, they are involved in developing the homecoming theme and setting up all homecoming activities.  They are involved in many fundraisers, community service, and lifting student morale.

Theatre Club - Jennifer Whitelaw, Advisor

The Airport High School Theatre Club (AHSTC) is a student-run organization that meets every month.  Any current AHS student can join the club at any time. AHSTC members learn and practice different types of theater activities, such as “Taxi” and “Freeze Frame”.  Members also assist with the annual fall production and AGT as ushers, ticket takers, sound crew, prop crew, construction crew, etc. unless they have an on-stage role. AHSTC elects its own officers who act as student liaisons for the good of the organization.  AHSTC members may participate in fundraisers to allow for trips to non-AHS events, club events, and holiday parties.

Stay Healthy Jets!
Reports of Enterovirus D-68 have been circulating the country and media as of late, although there have been no confirmed cases of EV-D68 in Michigan yet. Regardless, we have some healthy suggestions for our students and families to avoid the virus. 

1) Frequently wash hands with warm water and soap for 20 seconds. 
2) Avoid touching eyes, mouth, nose with unwashed hands. 
3) Avoid close contact (kissing, hugging), sharing cups/utensils/drinks with people who are sick. 
4) Disinfect frequently touched surfaces like doorknobs, remote controls, and computer keyboards. 
5) If you have asthma, be extra diligent about taking your asthma control medicines during flu season. 

There is no cause for alarm! Just practice these precautionary habits and stay healthy, Jets! For more information about Enterovirus D-68 click here
