BHS Club Day - Aug. 29th

There's more to the high school experience than the classroom. Blair Oaks High School offers endless opportunities for students to get involved. Joining a club allows students to become connected to our school, build community, discover their passions and strengths, and build a resume for their future.


On Thursday, August 29th, students will be given an opportunity throughout the day to visit with different clubs and their sponsors. Encourage your student to keep an open mind and go outside their comfort zone. Oftentimes, these are the most rewarding experiences.
