Student Clubs

Are you looking for something to become involved with this year at the NGC? Becoming a member of a club or athletic team is a great way to meet new friends and ease the transition to high school. Students from the NGC may also participate in clubs at the high school. If you are interested in that, please see your counselor.

Art Club

The Art Club is for any student at the NGC. You do not have to be in an art class to be in Art Club! Art Club is organized by local artist and NGC teacher Ashley Burosh. Art Club is for students interested in the visual arts that would like to create art along-side peers with similar interests. The club meets every Thursday in room F109 from 3:30 to 4pm. Students must arrange for transportation at 4pm as they may not stay in the building after 4pm unless they have arranged to stay with another teacher or coach. Planned activities include: screen printing, stamp and button making, cardboard collage and painting, found object mural, outdoor chalk mural, holiday activities, origami, etc.

Cardio Club

This club is designed to introduce weight lifting to students. Students create weight training plans to maximize muscle development through a multitude of weight lifting exercises. Once a month the club completes a physical benchmark test that includes maxing out on bench, squat and military press. This data is collected and tracked throughout the school year. It is a fun and exciting atmosphere that promotes support and camaraderie among its members. This club will meet for the first time on October 2nd. We will meet Tuesday and Thursday, 3:30 – 4:30.

GRIT Club

Our mission is to inspire our students to travel and learn about new cultures and teach them how to appreciate differences and pass that forward, inspiring them to make a difference within their school, community, state, nation and even globally. Our hope is to introduce and offer opportunities which cultivate a cultural awareness while fostering service learning consciousness through travel and volunteer service.

Page Turners & Battle of the Books

Page Turners is a group of students who love to read. We get together after-school on Fridays to discuss books that students are reading. Students interested in Battle of the Books must read 8 books. Once the students have read all 8 books the team competes in April against other HS teams in Indianapolis. The competition involves a written test over the content of the books. Then, the top 3 scoring teams will compete in a “Jeopardy” type round to determine a winner.
