Arts, Athletics, and Clubs

Art Club:  This club encourages creativity through a variety of activities and projects, above and beyond the regular curriculum. Art Club will meet a minimum of 10 times per year. Activities will be based on student interest and can vary drastically from year to year.  Students will also have the opportunity to participate in art exhibitions, critiques, service projects and field trips throughout the year. Art club is for all students, regardless of ability or experience. Members can come to one or all of the scheduled meetings. The goal is to provide a safe and inclusive environment for all students to grow and explore creativity, provide club members access to various art mediums and materials; and expose students to art and art history through the creative process, visiting artists and field trips. 

Book Club: Book Club is a student-facilitated group focused on reading works of literature and discussing topics, ideas, and themes within those works. Students will select books (titles and/or genres), and the club will meet monthly to have a productive conversation based on the texts. If students wish to participate in Battle of the Books, students will instead read the list provided for the year, and group meetings will include practice “battles” where students will quiz each other using sample questions. The club meets once a month; chooses pieces of literature based on student interest; promotes literature discussion between students; prepares for Battle of the Books (based on student interest); and will possibly hold a fundraiser to support Battle of the Books participation. 

Bring Change to Mind:   Bring Change to Mind (BC2M) Club's mission is to end the stigma and discrimination surrounding mental illness.  The vision and scope of the club is for DelVal students to create a platform to share their voices and raise awareness around mental health and wellness.  The goal is to empower students to educate one another and their communities as well as create a positive culture of support within their school.

Buddies: The Buddies Unified program was created by volunteer staff, general education students, parents, and community members. The main goal of this club was to help students who have special needs or may not feel part of the school establish friends and a sense of school community at Del Val.
