Student Clubs

DATA offers a number of extra-curricular, student-driven clubs and opportunities throughout the school year. Each club is created through student interests and sponsored by a faculty member who facilitates and supports the students as they plan events, activities, and meetings. These clubs are for all grade levels and genders. Parent involvement is encouraged and allowed through school background checks and more. If interested in volunteering to help with a student club or activity, please contact the appropriate club sponsor listed below.

DATA follows the eligibility requirements set forth by the NMAA.

YEARBOOK

CURRENT EVENTS CLUB
CURRENT EVENTS CLUB

Are you interested in current events and what is going on in the world right now? Join the “Current Events” club where we will spend the first few minutes the latest Daily Show Monologue to kick start our conversation about what is happening in the world right now. Students are free to suggest topics and monologues for that day’s discussion. We will use our DATA General norms to engage in debate and discussion about the events so far this year which will no doubt go down in the history books. If you are interested in joining this club, let Ms. Rael know in the introductions channel of her server! https://discord.gg/EdPxUCU

DATA SPECTRUM ALLIANCE
DATA SPECTRUM ALLIANCE

We believe gender and sexuality are more than just one or the other and that it is on a spectrum. In this club we provide community support from one another, privacy, and advocate for LGBTQ+ rights. We often also do community service projects to help the marginalized members of our community. All grades, genders, identities are welcome to join. We are a safe space for all. If you are interested in joining this club, let Ms. Lawson know in the introductions channel of her server! https://discord.gg/BpVkTMW

CREATIVE WRITING CLUB
CREATIVE WRITING CLUB

Join us in creating a DATA literary magazine! Open to students of all grade levels. We will write together, read together, but we’ll also put out calls for submissions for student artwork and writing, and students will practice working one on one to edit and prepare student writing for publication. We plan to collaborate with Art Club and Digital Arts students as well to create the final product. Students will decide the shape they want the “magazine” to take and will build it from the ground up. If you are interested in joining this club, let Ms. Brennan know in the introductions channel of her server! https://discord.gg/ZsjjKSh

E-SPORTS
E-SPORTS

Esports is a bit different than a club, but we wanted to inform you of the opportunity to join through this club channel. Esports is actually treated the same as Varsity/JV sports as it is sanctioned by NMAA. There will be tryouts, dues, etc…and not everyone will make the team or be eligible. This is a formal program under the guidance/requirements of NMAA. There are academic requirements to participate as well. If you are interested in trying out for Esports, let Mr. Stuyvesant know in the introductions channel of his server! https://discord.gg/QhQqRs9

DUNGEONS & DRAGONS
DUNGEONS & DRAGONS

Have you ever wanted to sway the minds of an entire Mind Flayer hive mind using the power of your divine smite? Is taking down a political opponent with the well-timed and inappropriate bongo solo your jam? Does your crew include a shapeshifting werebear, a pacifistic cleric and a Tiefling who is constantly getting you into moral predicaments? Maybe you are just a fan of Stranger Things and want to learn how to defeat the Demogorgon using your stats and wits? If this sounds like you, DATA has a club for that! Join us in the dungeon for Dungeons and Dragons club. Players of all skill levels and grade levels are invited to attend Wednesdays at 12 on Ms. Groneman’s server. Please write your name in the introductions and that you are joining DND Club so you are given the correct role. https://discord.gg/3KHyrM2
