This club is a place where students share the collective goal of learning and understanding the basics of American Sign Language. We meet to discuss the deaf culture, communicate with our hands, and have fun! There is also the ASL Google Classroom available for students or staff who want to practice or learn ASL at their own pace or use the games and videos in their classroom.
Mondays and Wednesdays, 3:30 to 5 p.m.
Advisor: Ms. Keppol

This after-school club is intended to provide a space for high school students to play and share various "tabletop" games as well as engage with others who share a passion for imagination, strategy, and friendly competition. While we might be including other games in the future, our focus is on checkers, chess, Dungeons and Dragons, Magic: The Gathering, and several board games.

Siuslaw E-Sports' inaugural season was 2021-2022. We have two competing teams. The first is in Apex Legends. They compete in a weekly floating competitive platform with other schools west of the Rockies. The second team is a Super Smash Bros. team. They compete in a formal league on the PlayVS Platform.
The next season will not only include these two games but there are about a dozen more game titles in which we can compete, including Overwatch, Mario Kart, Minecraft, Halo, Fortnite, and MORE!
