Stuttgart HS: Activities

All after school clubs and activities (i.e. jump rope, art, music, math, sports, etc.)will normally meet only on days that the school follows a full day schedule, NOT on early release days. There is no extra-curricular activity bus for students who participate in these activities. Parents whose child frequently rides a bus must make transportation and/or other arrangements for the student to be picked up from school following the activity. Notification of these activities will be sent to the parent along with the day and time of the activity. In addition, due to unforeseen training, meetings, or teacher absences, an activity may be canceled without advanced notice. The sponsoring teacher will endeavor to notify students and parents of the canceled activity if time permits. If the activity is canceled at the last minute, students will be notified through the school intercom system at the end of the instructional day.

Sponsors of clubs and extracurricular activities determine academic and behavioral (disciplinary) requirements that students must meet to participate in school sponsored extracurricular activities or to hold a leadership position in a curriculum-related club, team or student organization.

Some of our athletics and activities are Europe based events, which means that there is a culminating area wide championship for athletics that mimics a state championship. Europe Activities are support curriculum and offer area wide available throughout the year that range from art, drama and music to math, language and film/entertainment. More information concerning Europe specific activities can be found under on the  DoDEA Europe, Student Activities page.

Science National Honor Society (SNHS)

Science National Honor Society logo

What is the history of the Science National Honor Society?

America has been honoring brilliant students through honor societies since 1921. Educators began to notice the need for subject specific honor societies in America’s high schools in the 1980's. Since then, new honor societies have sprung up to recognize and encourage students in such areas as English, Art, French, Journalism, German, and Spanish. Until now, there has been no national honor society for Science. In this era of rapidly changing technologies and scientific advancement, it is time to encourage and recognize high school students in the Sciences. 

What are the requirements to be in the Science National Honor Society?

  • Must maintain an overall minimum unweighted GPA of 3.5.
  • Must maintain a minimum unweighted Science GPA of 3.6.
  • Must currently be enrolled in an Honors or AP Science Class in application year (2nd semester sophomores, juniors and seniors only)
  • Must complete the required attendance and volunteer hours (5 pts./semester) to be in good standing.

What are the key benefits of being a member of the Science National Honor Society? 

The Science National Honor Society (SNHS) recognizes students who have demonstrated excellence in encouraging and recognizing scientific and intellectual thought. These students work to advance the students within the schools knowledge of classical and modern science.
Throughout the year, students will meet at general meetings once a month to hear guest speakers and student board speakers discuss relevant topics in science.  Members are also required to participate in science outreach opportunities and encouraged to be involved with the society science competition teams.

Based on the information, here is our review:

  1. Our first observation is: that this society has a general GPA requirement, as well as a different GPA requirement for the subject of Science itself, which is unique. 
  2. Our second observation was: that this society requires service hours, and while that is not unusual for an honor society, it is usually not broadly listed as a requirement for membership. 
  3. Our third observation was: that SNHS is a prominent scientific organization that will engender a new group of young thinkers who will be the future of industry, research, and scientific exploration.

Our Science Team will be reviewing applications in 2022!!
