Clubs and Activities
Mission and vision of Staples High School on extracurricular activities:
To provide a safe and dynamic environment where students can seek out their passions beyond the academic classroom. We believe that clubs and activities are an essential part of a students development. Extra curricular clubs and activities at Staples High School foster essential skills such as creative problem solving, divergent thinking and teamwork. Additionally the relationships developed with staff and students through our clubs and activities enhances our school culture and climate.
This year, the literary magazine Soundings is celebrating its 75th year of publication as one of the longest running clubs here at Staples! In celebration, the staff of the literary magazines have been working hard not only on our annual volume, but also on a special, celebratory publication.
We are pleased to share the 75th Volume of Soundings and QED, as well as a 75th Special Anniversary Magazine (PDFs attached below), featuring selections pulled from each year of the Soundings publication, from 1947 until today!
Additionally, the club was awarded a mini-Wrecker grant through the PTA to digitize our archives, so for the first time, we are able to share every published copy of Soundings with the public from our history at Staples! You can find each archived volume on our new and improved website.
