InterAct Club: making easy hours and friends

Time is precious. InterAct Club will save time, let students make a difference and meet new friends.

“We have about 200 students each year,” said Mrs. Kate Korchok, Spanish teacher and InterAct club adviser.

With that many people, the commonly used excuse of “I don’t know anyone” is not acceptable. Walking into a meeting that large, a familiar face is a common finding. Friends can tag along as it is easy to sign up.

“I would probably be interested in it. My sister was in it for three years” said Nicole Crone, 9.

Blackboard has information on InterAct Club.

“You don’t have to fill out an application, you don’t have to attend the meetings, all of the information is on BlackBoard. Once you have signed up you will be added to my page and receive volunteer opportunities,” said Korchok.

Students can pick and choose what events they would like to be part of. The club has accolades as well.

“It is a great club and does many great things. I was in it for three years,” said Samantha Weiss, 12.

“The club is so big I can’t sign people up for activities so they have to. All of them will have contact information so that they can contact who is in charge of that event and say ‘I’m interested’,” said Korchok.

“Then they turn they hours back into me and I keep a spreadsheet,” said Korchok.

It is as simple as that: a few meetings, making a big difference.
