• The Students Taking Action & Responsibility Club (STAR) club is advised by Mr. McDonald and Mr. Coe. The STAR Club is a unique opportunity for students to make a difference in someone else's life. The purpose of this club is to volunteer and complete community service projects. In addition to giving back to the community, students will have the chance to make new friends, have fun, be a school leader, and build character! The club is open to all students in grade Eight. Sixth and Seventh graders can join Junior STAR Club and experience similar activities. New students are always welcome.

    STAR Club volunteered this past April in support of "Clean Sweep" to make Henrietta even more beautiful!


    STAR Club members volunteered at Make a Difference Day on Saturday, October 26th.
