Government Club There is no better time to get involved in our government than now! The Government Club invites you to join us and take advantage of opportunities to be an active citizen and make a difference within our democracy. This is not a political debate club. It is simply a platform to share out-of-school civic experiences such as working on a political campaign, serving as an election judge or on a peer jury, going on public policy field trips to Chicago and of course the annual Close Up trip to Washington D.C.

Please come to an informational meeting before school at 7:25 AM on Wednesday August 30th in Room 202.  If you are unable to attend, please see Government Club Sponsor Mr. Lichtenberg or your social studies teacher. Hope to see you there!
