At Nobles we are so fortunate to have the time in our busy schedule to have specific blocks for Clubs and Organizations. Every week, we have X-block (the block specified for these clubs) on Fridays last period of the day from 2:30 to 3 p.m. Also, every other Wednesday we have X-block from 8:25 to 9 a.m. This time is allotted for students to explore different ideas and concepts around the school that they may not otherwise have time for during their week. For example, we offer clubs such as Community Service, Young Republicans, Young Democrats, Sports Club, Spanish Club, French Club and countless others. Also, we are able to start any club we want to as long as we have one faculty advisor to oversee our decisions and plans.
I am currently one of the heads of the Community Service Board and enjoy working with many students on and off campus in order to improve the public good. Throughout the year we have an incredible amount of projects going on at once, so having a good core and a wide variety of students provides a lot of opportunities for the school to help many of those in need. It’s amazing how many hands make for light work, and it is quite enjoyable at the same time. The Community Service Board not only works within the boundaries of just the board members, but we also works with many other clubs in order to provide assistance to other ideas brought to us from other students. This teamwork helps take a small idea, and make it a huge reality. Having the time designated for X-block offers the students and opportunity to share their skills with others in order for students to learn from each other.
