Clubs and Activities

Students are encouraged to join as many clubs and activities as possible which are opportunities to cultivate new interests, meet new friends and gain valuable leadership experience. Clubs meet during the school day, after school and for select weekend outings. Have an idea for a club? Contact Student Activities Director Mr. Joey Klobas, jklobas@riordanhs.org.

Sample Clubs

BBQ Club

In partnership with Epicurean, Riordan’s food services company, students learn the art of preparing and grilling delicious fare. Recently they learned a brisket rub recipe that was slow smoked all day. The Club got back together after school and prepared sliders for the school community.

 

Heal Our World Club
Students in this club manage Riordan’s urban garden, and host twice yearly farmer’s market for the Riordan community. Nothing is more local than produce grown on campus.

 

 

DJ Club
Students in this club provide the soundtrack to rallies, dances, special events, and weekly lunches, and take special field trips and gain experience “on air” at local stations such as 99.7.

 

 

Knights of Riordan (Student Ambassadors)
Each year hundreds of prospective students to campus, and the Knights of Riordan make sure that these visitors feel welcome and experience all that the school has to offer. The Knights represent Riordan hospitality at its best.

 

 

Art Club
Beyond the classroom there are many opportunities for students to engage their artistic sides. The Art Club is not just for those who can draw, paint, or create sculptures. The Art Club is for anyone who LOVES art, whether you enjoy making it, looking at it, or discussing it.

 

 

All levels of artistic ability and/or interest are welcome. The Club makes banners for school masses and prayer services, collaborates with other clubs and student government on signs and posters, draws pastel murals at the front of the school to promote the Fall Play and Spring Musical, and paints window murals, such as the stained-glass style painting of Blessed William Chaminade, the founder of the Marianist Order, at the front of the school.

In between major collaborative projects, Art Club members spend time creating their own work, both for their own development and often for local, regional, and national art contests.

Stay tuned for 2016-17 Club offerings.
