Interested in joining a club?

The first LBHS Club Day of the year will take place on Friday, September 24, 2021. In order for a student to attend a club meeting on that day they must already be on the club roster. Students need to meet with club sponsors before September 24 in order to be added to that club’s roster.


On club days, students attend the first 45 minutes of their regularly scheduled class. In the second 45 minutes of the class, students will attend their club meeting if they are on the roster for that club and if it is meeting during that block. The Club Day schedule will be announced to students before our first club day.
