Environmental Club: “In the next few months, Environmental Club will also be holding a wooden plate-making workshop for OHS students to lower the use of paper plates during breakfast and lunch,” said Co-President Arla Sutton. “We will also be focused on eliminating plastic utensil usage in the cafeteria thanks to a generous donation from a community member, and giving students reusable bamboo utensils.” 

Key Club: On Sunday, Oct. 27, Key Club will be holding their first bake sale of the school year, with proceeds going to Safe San Juans. The bake sale will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., so make sure to stop by and grab some Halloween-themed goodies.

What is the main reason you should join Glee Club?

“I think that it’s a good opportunity to put yourself out there, especially if you haven’t done stuff like that before.”

Where did the idea for Glee Club come from?

“Well, believe it or not, I was actually very heavily influenced by the TV show. I also had a Glee Club at my old school, and I wanted to give students on Orcas the same opportunity.”

What time are Glee Club meetings?

“The meetings will be held mostly [on] Mondays and Fridays after school, but I’m willing to work around people’s schedules. I know that a lot of people are in sports, so if you’re interested in joining the club but worried about any conflict feel free to contact me.”

Any big hopes and dreams for the club?

“My main goal is that, by the time I’m a senior, the club will be performing in regionals.”

Is there anything exciting happening in the next couple of months that we should be looking out for?

“We won’t be doing many public performances for a while, because I want people to become comfortable performing and I know that can take a while. However, if you do join Glee Club, we will be having a boys versus girls sing and dance off within the first month.”
