Clubs & Organizations

Getting involved in clubs and organizations can be one of the high points of your high school life, as you meet other students with similar interests and share experiences. Working on a project together builds lasting friendships and opportunities to gain and exercise leadership skills.

Service Hours: Are you looking for a leadership opportunity? Camp Invention is looking for six 10th-12th graders to be leadership interns this summer. Camp Invention runs for a week in the summer. This opportunity introduces entrepreneurial and intellectual property concepts, strengthens college applications, and provides a meaningful setting to complete required volunteer hours.

Maddie Clemens won 1st semester’s GOPHER GOLD AWARD, sponsored by Cabin Coffee and Delta. Each semester, the Delta Promotion and Outreach Team picks a characteristic of our G.O.P.H.E.R. card program that is the focus of the award for the semester. Students who feel they display that characteristic apply via a Google Form application which is then made anonymous and given with all other applications to Cabin Coffee. One is chosen by business leaders and given back to our group who then reveals the winner. Maddie, who applied under the characteristic of “Helpfulness”, will join past winners (Abbi Gillespie – Perseverance, Javier Berg – Education) with her name on the plaque at both the HS and at Cabin Coffee. Congratulations, Maddie!

*Gopher Gold Award Application for semester two is now available at the following link: https://forms.gle/DU5VcKDc9JJbDV1x9 . Students that apply will focus on the characteristic of OPTIMISM. Application deadline will be Friday, May 27th and should include personal examples of how you show optimism in your life. The google form is brief and submitted applications will be anonymously given to leaders at Cabin Coffee, Delta’s co-sponsor of this award. Winners receive a gift and their name on a plaque both at school and at Cabin Coffee. Be “optimistic” and try for this wonderful opportunity this week to join past winners Abbi Gillespie, Javier Berg, and Maddie Clemens (our latest Semester 1 winner showing Helpfulness – congrats to Maddie!).”

“Delta Cares” box.
There will be two physical boxes, one located in Mrs. Duxbury’s office and another in Mrs. Love’s office. Each box will be a place for students to share information with staff about hardship or tragedy being experienced by students in our school. The boxes will have slips of paper for students to fill out and the boxes will be checked daily. There will also be 4 QR-code signs linked to a digital version of the form that students can fill out as well.  We hope these boxes will allow Delta to help support students who need it!

About | Technovation

Founded in 2006 as Iridescent, Technovation was born out of an idea CEO Tara Chklovski had gotten hooked on as an engineer at USC. Looking around at her fellow grad students, Tara realized how few women and people of color were in the room.     www.technovation.org

MN ENGINEERING MACHINE DESIGN CONTEST

Advisor: Mrs. Gathje

The Regional Minnesota Engineering Machine Design Contest was held on Friday 1 April at Winona State University.  This year's theme was "Power the World."  Two teams competed from Chatfield High School.

 

Minnesota Honor Society: Mrs. Gathje

Minnesota Honor Society members Abbi Gillespie, Maddie Clemens, and Sydney Allen donated pop top tabs to the Ronald McDonald House that were collected at both the high school and the elementary school throughout the school year. 

MHS President Abbi Gillespie and Treasurer Lauren Cole presented a check for $596.82 to Pastor Debra Collum at the Chatfield Food Shelf.  The donation was a combination of the basketball half time hoop shoot and the aluminum can recycling program at the high school.  Special thanks to Eli Hopp for organizing the aluminum can project and Shelby Nolan, Lauren and Abbi for running the hoop shoot.  Great job MHS!
