Students participating in WGHS clubs and sports represented their organizations at the Hixson Activities Fair on March 11, in the Hixson Gym.

Assistant Activities Director Cliff Ice organized the activities fair to help inform and inspire middle schoolers about extracurricular activities they could get involved in at WGHS.

“The activities fair has been going on for probably 12 years, maybe more. Every kid gets to come through and visit to see all the activities we have to offer. They discover what they can get involved in, whether or not they already know about them… We have 20 sports and over 40 clubs at Webster,” Ice said.

Tables were set up around the gym with signs, calendars, flyers, slideshows, student presenters and clipboards where interested Hixson students left their names and email addresses.

Secretary Kim Edwards accepted all permission slips for the fair because it qualified as a field trip for the students. Student representatives arrived at Hixson at our normal school time for the fair and were let out at 11:30 a.m.

“We typically try to get [the Activities Fair] on a half day with parent-teacher conferences so it works out well,” Ice explained. At WGHS, students only went to periods 4, 5, 6 and 7 and were dismissed at 11:59 a.m. Parent-teacher conferences took place throughout the entire building from 12:50- 2:45 p.m.
