Have you joined a club yet?


  • Clubs are a great way for students to connect and meet other students who share their interests. At this time all of our clubs are happening online using video meetings.
  • Learn more or join one of these clubs by enrolling in the Canvas course called "FOS Clubs" (check with a teacher for the link)
  • If you would like to start a club, talk with your teachers about finding a supervisor. All clubs need an adult adviser.
