On September 15, Sturgis’ annual CAS fair took place. Creativity, Activity, and Service (CAS) teams lined up on Main Street to display the array of clubs and extracurriculars that Sturgis has to offer. The goal of the CAS fair is to reach out to students and give them an opportunity to learn about and get engaged in these extracurriculars.
All of Sturgis’ clubs were represented at the fair. These clubs included Relay for Life, Apiary Club, Model United Nations, Key Club, Amnesty Club, Feminist Club, Outing Club, Improv Club, Civil Rights Club, and many more.
Sturgis ROVers was one of many clubs represented at the CAS fair. Students in the ROVers club build their own remotely operated vehicle (ROVer) that they complete tasks underwater with and even enter in regional competitions. Sophomore Jerry Curran enjoyed recruiting new students for the club through the CAS fair. “The CAS fair is a perfect opportunity for Sturgis students to take pride in the work that their clubs have done while welcoming new members. Clubs are a central part of our school and community, and the CAS fair is such a great representation of that.” says Curran.
The CAS fair also helps new students to immerse themselves in the Sturgis community. “The CAS fair allowed me to learn a lot more about the clubs that I was interested in,” says freshman Grace Rizzuto. “The fair encouraged me to join these clubs and make new friends.”
A list of Sturgis’ clubs can be found under the “students” tab on the school website, SturgisCharterSchool.org. All students are encouraged to participate in extracurriculars, and clubs are always welcoming new members.
