KAMS Clubs

Katherine Albiani Middle School Clubs 2018- 2019

This year KAMS has a variety of clubs to suit the needs of all students. We encourage students to get involved. Clubs not only provide students with an opportunity to explore a topic of interest, but it also allows a safe place for students to be with friends and have fun!  Students can join a club at any time. If they would like to start a club, they simply need a teacher advisor to oversee the club and a minimum of 15 students to show interest.  When students turn in the club paperwork, ASB then approves the club and  meetings can begin.  Friday at lunch students can sign up for clubs they are interested I attending.
