Why does SF have clubs?
St. Francis High School encourages the education of the whole person, and clubs provide opportunities for students to work towards our Integral Student Outcomes (ISOs). Organizations and clubs are plentiful, providing something for everyone: school and community service, academic competitions, cultural interests, spirit building, publications, and the development of special talents.

What do moderators need to know for a new club?
New moderators will receive a Club Moderator Handbook, which outlines the duties of a club moderator. Each club moderator must turn in a moderator duties form that highlights the duties of the moderator for his/her particular club. This form is due within one quarter of the club’s acceptance.
What does a club have to do to stay official?
It is the goal of the Activities Office that clubs provide opportunities for students to develop their talents and interests within the scope of the St. Francis community. Clubs must continue to remain active throughout the school year in order to fulfill the purpose of the club and its constitution.
What could cause a club to be placed on probation or to be revoked?
A club may be placed on probation for one semester if members violate the club’s constitution, or if the club is inactive for an unreasonable amount of time. A club may be revoked if its members violate school rules. The Principal’s Council will determine whether a club is placed on probation or revoked. A club is not official if it does not have a faculty or staff moderator.
How can clubs promote themselves?
Clubs may promote themselves in a variety of ways. An officially recognized club may set up a table on Clubs Day in September. Clubs may also post flyers around campus, advertise in homeroom announcements, and use the Haiku internet resource to create a group website. At the discretion of the Director of Activities, clubs may also have the opportunity to give presentations in assemblies.
What does a moderator have to do to stay a moderator?
A moderator must fulfill all the duties outlined in the Club Moderator Handbook. This includes ensuring that the actions of the club supports the school’s philosophy, mission statement, and Integral Student Outcomes (ISOs). Moderators are responsible for the safety of students, maintaining a roster of student members, attending all club events (including official meeting, off-campus events, practices, conferences, and competitions), ensuring fiscal matters are handled properly, and communicating with the Director of Student Activities as requested (including attendance at meetings and timely return of documents).
