(COVINGTON, La.) — Get Involved Day attracted a plethora of students and teachers to Founders Circle during lunch on Tuesday, Aug. 20. The day is an opportunity for students to explore and enroll in extracurricular activities and sports.
Clubs at this event included Robotics, Quiz Bowl, Swimming, Guerilla Wolves, Tennis, Baseball, Wolves on Wheels, and many others. Promoting his Quidditch team, Andrew Dart said, “we want athletes to play this. You’re going to be gassed from running back and forth.”
Students lined up to learn more about the Speech and Debate Team. “It is about politics, logic, and law. You must persuade with ethical and moral reasoning,” said team captain and founder Hal Fox. According to Roman Landry, the Art Club is currently working on tiles but will branch into other projects as the year progresses. The Theater Club encouraged participation in this year’s performances by giving out pizza to those who signed up for an audition.
Nearly 90% of St. Paul’s students participate in at least one activity. The school encourages involvement with the Golden Torch Award, where students accrue points for extracurricular participation. If a student did not participate in Get Involved Day, it is not too late to get involved. Students should contact club or team moderators for more information.
