High School Student Clubs and Activities
Clubs are based on student interest and therefore vary each year. Students may form a new club simply by inviting a faculty member to sponsor it. The following clubs have existed in the recent past and asterisks indicate clubs which are currently active:
|Drama Club||Community Service Club|
|Debating Society||Cooking Club|
|Poetry Club||Mock Trial/Moot Court|
|Literary Magazine*||Social Committee*|
|Film Club||Robotics Club*|
|Running Club||Knitting Club|
|Environmental Club||German Club*|
|Peer Court*||Yodeling Club|
|Outdoor Adventure||Art Club|
|Chess Club||W.A.V.E.S.* (Waste and Vice Elimination Squad)|
Students can participate in drama productions including a fall play, large musical production in the spring, and several smaller productions.
Each class elects representatives to this body of student government. Weekly Student Council meetings are open and all students are welcome to participate.
The Sacramento Waldorf High School yearbook is a product of student editors and photographers.
Summer Enrichment Programs
Through our Counseling/Student Services offices, students are referred to summer jobs, programs on summer campuses (e.g. Introduction to Engineering at Notre Dame, National Youth Leadership Conference on Medicine, Global Youth Leadership Conference on Law and Diplomacy, photography classes at American River College), community service and travel opportunities here and abroad, and volunteer opportunities in local school districts.
Each year students take a number of class trips that support the curriculum. These have included trips to San Francisco museums, geology explorations, theater performances, and architectural points of interest. Classes may also take community-building trips such as ropes courses, camping trips, community service projects and retreats. The Senior class commemorates its high school experience with a longer class trip.
Each Senior designs and carries out an individual project based on his or her interest, and makes a public presentation of that project to the School community. Examples of past projects include: rebuilding a car engine, building a boat, a series of oil portraits, an in-depth scholarly exploration of cloning, hand-crafting fine furniture, writing and illustrating a children's book, producing a film, designing a clothing line, extensive volunteer work and long-term internships.
