The Concept of Clubs

Timberwolves for the Environment members work on converting plastic bags to mats and pillows. These newly converted mats and pillows will be donated to the homeless. “You really feel good when you are making these things for other people because we get to deliver the mats and when we deliver it to the homeless and they are really appreciative of it,” junior club officer Savanna Laughlin said. “It’s really eye opening like, ‘wow we have it really good’ and just spending one hour after school can make such a difference in a person’s life.”

Meet the Timberwolves brought in so many clubs for students to explore, but there is always more than meets the eye on a little pamphlet paper. Cedar Park is home to many clubs where students can join and meet people with similar interests. 

With many different opportunities, Spanish Club offers a fun way to get deeper into spanish culture. Sponsored by spanish teacher Kris Campos, students can come and celebrate the heritage of spanish speaking cultures and countries. 

People should join because Spanish Club is like an extension of class,” Campos said. “We celebrate holidays, eat authentic food, break piñatas, etc. We do lots of fun things that we just don’t have time to do in class.”

Along with these activities, Spanish Club takes part in traveling to different festivals, traditional spanish holidays, like decorating sugar skulls for Day of the Dead, and raising money by selling popcorn.

I hope that through Spanish Club students will learn something new about the culture of Spanish-speaking places,” Campos said. “[They can] try a new food they haven’t had before and make new friends.”

Another club on campus is the Art Club. Art Club’s purpose is just to have fun creating different arts and crafts, as well as developing relationships among students with similar interest. This club is sponsored by art teacher Leslie Landers and meetings are every other Monday in her room. 

“It’s a great way to make new friends,” Landers said. “The projects are student picked and student led. We do something new every week. We often help out in the community with art related community service projects as well.”

Recently, Art Club took part in painting a fall scene on the windows at Chick-fil-A and plans on recreating a winter scene as well. Also, students are helping to create friendship bracelets with the African American Heritage Club that will be donated to Rwanda. Throughout the year, members use their skills in order to help others, while also having fun with new friends. 

“Clubs offer the opportunity to interact with students you may not ever have contact with,” Landers said. “It’s a great way to spend your spare time doing something you love being a part of, or even an officer of an organization looks tremendous on college applications.”

Sponsored by art and photography teacher Tiffany Asha, Photography Club takes part in community service projects in order to help the community through a creative platform. This year, Photography Club is hosting a family photo shoot at Brushy Creek Park on Nov. 9. They will also be providing free senior portraits and they will be volunteering at Austin Pets Alive to take pictures of available animals. This club offers a way for students to use their knowledge, big or small, to help others. 

“It’s a great way to learn about photography and for people that are passionate about, it gives them another way to use their skills,” Asha said. 

No matter what level you are at, beginner or advanced, anyone can join. Cameras are provided if you do not own one, or if you have your own you can bring it and you will be taught how to use it. Senior club officer Cally Hall explained that it is a good way for students to gain extra practice with photography. 

“[The purpose is] that they get a good experience and they can learn about photography without having to be in a photography class,” Hall said. “Because so many people don’t have room in their schedule.”

Timberwolves for the Environment is all about service-led projects and this year they are taking part in multiple. As of right now, students are using old plastic bags to create mats for the homeless, collecting old mascara wands to donate to clean animals and, later this year, they will be taking donations of shoes to give to the organization Soles4Souls.  

“You really feel good when you are making these things for other people because we get to deliver the mats and when we deliver it to the homeless and they are really appreciative of it,” junior club officer Savanna Laughlin said. “It’s really eye opening like, ‘wow we have it really good’ and just spending one hour after school can make such a difference in a person’s life.” 

Through Timberwolves for the Environment, students are able to increase there activism in something that’s bigger than themselves in order to better the world around them. The club meets every Monday after school in science teacher Shannon Mcpherson’s room. 

“[I hope] they feel that they can be active and that they actually play a role,” Mcpherson said. “Because the stuff in the environment is very sad right now.”
