Clovis Unified School District recognizes the important part co-curricular activities plays in rounding out a student's education. To achieve excellence and success in something outside the classroom gives students an added dimension of cooperation, well-being, and self-esteem. Below are some various opportunities for students to serve as leaders on ASI's campus. However, ASI Bruins should not limit themselves to this list. There are many ways students can get involved from athletics to academic teams and clubs to service in the classroom.
Leadership (Yearlong course): Leadership is a yearlong elective class offered to both seventh and eighth grade students. Students must apply when they register for their classes. Leadership students will be participating in the planning and execution of a variety of projects, such as setting up dances, rallies, painting signs and various school functions. Students will be involved in running school fundraisers. Leadership students will be involved with civic activities at school and in the community. There will be cooperative learning activities and oral presentations. Leadership students will develop the leadership skills that are relevant to junior high life.
Peer Counseling (Yearlong course): Peer counseling is a program in which students are trained
to help fellow intermediate students with problems faced in adolescence. The
goal is not to give advice, but to guide others to develop their own solutions
to problem situations. Student leadership skills are also emphasized. A
training session is required.
