·      Designated student president/leader

·      Faculty moderator

·      Mission statement

·      Some form of community outreach (service or other activities that take your club outside of NDA)

·      Participate in Club Orientation

As a club, you will create some form of presentation (skit, video, song, etc) to show at Club Orientation as in previous years. You will also need to present your tri-fold poster with pictures and descriptions of your club which will be presented to students in an “open house” on the same day as Club Orientation. This will give students a chance to ask questions.

The school community loves reading about the projects our students undertake. Throughout the year, clubs will be asked to submit an update to Mrs. Grayson about highlights, accomplishments or goals. This information will be used in the Panda Press Weekly and for Board Meetings.

Club Fundraiser/Collection Procedure:
If your club would like to sponsor a fundraiser or collection you will need to take the following steps to set it up.

1) Complete the Fundraiser Form which is submitted to Bridget Price as soon as you know what it is you would like to do.

2) Wait for approval to begin planning. (We are trying to limit to one fundraiser and one item collection a month so as to not overwhelm our students.)

3) Once the fundraiser/collection is complete - please report all totals to Bridget Price as soon as you can so that our records remain up to date.
