Art Club

The art club exists to offer any and all students who love art and creativity in any capacity a time and place to meet on a regular basis. Here, ideas are exchanged, inspiration is found and fun is had. We work on both art and craft based projects. Projects include painting and drawing, sculpting with plaster, tie-dye, button making and mask making and we are always looking for new ideas from participants. The Art Club currently meets every other week after school in Graphic Communications.

 

Chess Club

The chess club meets weekly and allows players of all abilities to enjoy and hone their skills against other students and on occasion members of the South Shore staff. Brand new players are always welcome.

 

Drama

Drama Club is a self-funded student activity that runs during the school year and involves talents from all vocational areas. We produce a virtual show each year. We welcome all SST students to join — we need techies, stage hands, actors, set designers and builders, costumers, make up artists, and painters. Every talent is needed. For more information, visit the Drama Page

Dungeons & Dragons

The Dungeons & Dragons Club at SST is a group of students gathering together each week to play the 5th edition of D&D.  D&D is the world's most popular roleplaying game and has been around for 40 years.  We welcome all students regardless of experience level with the game.  We have volunteer student Dungeon Masters who run groups with 3 to 8 players.  This year we are meeting virtually on Google Meet to get organized, students then make plans to meet at other times to play sessions.  Please contact me at gstevens@ssvotech.org if you would like any more information.

 

FFA

 

GSA

The Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) is a student-run club that brings together LGBTQ and straight students to support each other, provide a safe place to socialize, and create a platform for activism to fight homophobia and transphobia. Youth are coming out as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or questioning at younger and younger ages. Far too many face pervasive harassment and violence at school because of their actual or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity.

Math Club

 

Music Club

National Honor Society

This scholastic club is part of the nationwide Honor Society.  One of the important pillars of this society is service to the community.  In addition to helping the school with other community service projects, the NHS also offers peer tutoring.  We have found that sometimes students find it easier to ask questions of, and learn from, other students.  If you would like to be matched with a peer tutor, contact Mrs. Palmer at tpalmer@ssvotech.org

 

Outdoor Adventure Club


The Outdoor Adventure Club meets approximately once a month outside of school. The club offers a variety of outdoor events such as skiing, hiking and rock climbing.

Prom Committee

The SST Prom Committee works to put on the Junior/Senior Prom.The Prom Committee is headed by the SST Officers of the junior and senior classes along with their class advisers. Any students that wish to assist with the planning and coordinating of the prom are welcomed to do so and attend the prom planning meetings. Together these meetings will work toward making decisions regarding, theme, fund-raising, advertising, selection of favors/memorabilia, and selecting the prom location. Students and advisers work together to ensure a safe and enjoyable prom experience for all who attend.

Student Council

SST Student Council is a student lead organization within the school that helps to connect the social and community needs of the student body with the administration and staff members of the school. Members seek to increase school community and ownership through school sponsored events and civic engagements. Members are voted into office by their collective class bodies or appointed as needed if membership positions must be filled. Visit the Student Council page here.

The main purpose of the The Yearbook Club at South Shore Tech is to produce the school's annual yearbook. With this goal in mind, students who join the Yearbook club will work on photography, writing, and editing. Students also assist in designing the pages of the yearbook. Yearbook Club provides students with the opportunity to assist in yearbook sales, photography and design. Students help to promote yearbook sales by making posters and distributing yearbook information. For more information go to the Yearbook Club page
