Clubs & Activities
Clubs and activities vary from year to year according to student interest. Clubs this year include the following…
Yearbook. The student staff and their faculty advisors work hard all year writing text, taking photos, devising captions and preparing computer layouts. Members of the Yearbook attend conferences at Pace University to hone their skills. Parents, students and visitors alike often comment on the professional look of the Soundview Yearbook!
Literary Magazine. Student editors work with their faculty advisor to comb through submissions of poetry, stories, essays and artwork from all grade levels in the school, and contribute their own creative efforts as well. Three or four issues are published during the year.
3-D Design Club. Members of this new club, formed this year, engineer and create projects on the School's new 3-D printer.
Politics Club. Members meet to debate a range of current events. Students are asked to keep an open mind, listen respectfully to other opinions and inform themselves on the issues.
Mock Trial. Sponsored by the NY State Bar Association, the Mock Trial program presents students with a different case each year to research and bring to trial in a competition with other schools across Westchester. The students meet after school in January and February with a volunteer lawyer or judge. Last year, the team advanced to the second round of the countywide legal program, arguing their case in a real courtroom in White Plains, NY,
Chess Club. Club members learn strategy and match wits in weekly chess games.
Knitting Club. Students devote their club period once a week to learning or perfecting their knitting techniques.
A Capella Club. This club supplements Soundview’s music program by providing students with additional opportunities for preparing, practicing and performing vocal music. The group performs at coffee houses and at the annual Talent Show.
Community Service. Although not a formal club, Suondview students are active in contributing to the community, both close by and further away. This year, a group of students is preparing and serving lunch to seniors and disabled adults every week at the Yorktown Community Center. In recent years, students in the Club have collected toys for the children of women incarcerated at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility, sent toiletry items to soldiers serving overseas, raised money for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, made dog and cat toys for a local animal shelter, to name a few projects.
