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.
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.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like any more information.
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.
SST math team is for students who enjoy exploring and having fun with mathematics. Math team practices include solving and discussing math problems to prepare for competitions. Math team provides students with a mathematical experience beyond the classroom for interested students and exposes them to existing mathematical talent outside of SST. We compete against other vocational high schools in the state throughout the school year.
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 email@example.com
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.
