GUIDELINES FOR CLUB CONSTITUTION
Of the Snowball Club
- Sterling Morton High School
The Snowball club at Morton East high school is a club that focuses on a healthy lifestyle for students. We are against any attitudes or actions that will negatively affect our students. Our club is made up of members along with our teen staff leaders that we select at the beginning of the year. Our teen staff leaders not only help us run the club, but they lead by example on what a positive impact one student can have. “If I have a positive impact on you, then you can have a positive impact on someone else and then it begins to snowball……….”
ARTICLE I. OBJECTIVE
Some of goals include but are not limited to the following:
-Have 100 participants attend are weekend retreat
-Successfully run three blood drives and get at least 300 students to donate at each one
-Participate in at least two volunteer opportunities outside of school
-Have two fundraisers throughout the year
-Positively impact the student body one student at a time
ARTICLE II. MEMBERSHIP
To become a member of our club you must fill out an emergency medical form and attend club meetings when they can on Thursdays after school. We are always looking for new members and we promote a healthy and comfortable environment for anyone to join.
Our members are required to come to our meetings and escape the challenges of high school so they can have some fun even if it’s for an hour after school.
If we find out someone if acting negatively or has done something that has hurt another student we will make sure to not let them come to our meetings anymore.
ARTICLE III. OFFICERS
Our leaders are made up of 16 teen staff members. In the beginning of the year each teen staff applicant must fill out an application, get 4 teacher references and go through an interview with the advisors. After that we select our best 16. Each applicant must hold and maintain a GPA of at least 2.0 and they must be in good academic and discipline standing.
We expect a lot from our teen staff members. Each leader is responsible for attending each club meeting along with our teen staff meetings on Wednesday evenings. We expect them to plan and run each club meeting. They will also plan and run the entire snowball weekend retreat. They have to find a DJ, a keynote speaker, a t-shirt design, plan and run a workshop, plan and run a small group for three days among other things. We also ask that they help run the three blood drives throughout the year where they will be assigned jobs such as typing in attendance and handing out snacks, etc….
(See Section II )
The removal of an officer will come if they are not attending meetings on a regular basis and if they violate any of our snowball guidelines.
ARTICLE V. COMMITTEES
We have committees within our teen staff leaders for the year and for the weekend retreat. The committees for the year are fundraising, snowball club, organizational and recruiting/publicity. They select them by seniority list.
