JUNIOR HIGH CAMPUS LIFE

Club Meetings – Every Friday 3-4:15pm

BORDEN CHESS CLUB

Great chess players are great thinkers.  The strategy and understanding that players learn from chess allows them to have higher intellect, improved self-esteem and concentration.  Chess helps students to make better decisions in all aspects of their life and most importantly… having fun!

Members will learn the basics of chess, opening moves and strategies, and how to calculate an ELO rank using Mathematics.

Chess clubs meet Thursdays after school in Mr. Casey’s classroom (Room 245).

Currently, our highest ranked player is Sean McKinley at 1065 points!

We have 6 regular players and we are looking to grow attendance. Come join us, all welcome!

Junior High Fishing Club

National Honor Society (NHS)

The National Honor Society is a nation-wide organization which recognizes high school juniors and seniors for achievement in scholarship, leadership, character and service. The students are chosen by a faculty committee on the basis of these four qualifications. Students are eligible for consideration if they have a 3.00 grade point average.

The society provides service to the school in many ways.

They traditionally assist the Red Cross in two annual blood drives.

They decorate the school at Christmas. 

At the end of the school year, NHS juniors escort the seniors at graduation and serve as ushers.

Senior members receive a NHS cord to wear on their graduation gowns.  

The induction ceremony for new members usually occurs in May when parents and friends are invited to attend

Outdoor Club (OC)

The Borden High School Outdoor Club has been a fixture in our building since its inception in 2002 . Over the last 17 years it has only grown in popularity with our student body .

Originally it was a small group of students interested in outdoor activities, and has since grown to include 94 students in 9th thru 12th grades . Over the years,  our students have had the opportunity to experience canoeing, spelunking, trap shooting, camping, bird hunts, and hiking . Many of our students would not have had these experiences without the club.

Students recognize it is a privilege to be part of the club. They are required to write an essay , and have no discipline issues , along with maintaining their grades in order to remain an active member of the club. we look forward to continuing this tradition for many more years . 

Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC)

Our purpose is multifaceted – we plan to address current issues within High School Athletics, find ways to promote multi-sport athletes, and orchestrate the Champions Together program, as well as the Unified Track initiative. 
 
We attend leadership conferences in the summer and many during the school year.   Our first of the year will be on September 16 as we travel to Jennings County for the IHSAA meeting for High School Administration. 
 
The SAAC work many tournament events throughout the year,  lead the Pledge of Allegiance and moment of silence daily, and are responsible for a weekly recycling program.   These are just a few tasks assigned to this group of student athletes.   
 
These students are held to high standards and are expected to keep their grades up and continue to be in good standing with the school and sports teams.    

Student Council

Our purpose:

Student Council provides students an opportunity to develop leadership by organizing and carrying out school activities and service projects. In addition to planning events that contribute to school spirit and community welfare, Student Council is the voice of the student body. 

How to join:

Starting this school year, class officers and Student Council members will be elected at the end of the school year. Students can sign up to run in the office and upon approval, placed on the ballot. Each class votes for their officers and representatives to Student Council.

What does Student Council do:
 
During Spirit Week we host the canned food drive competition between classes and each year we collect over 1,000 canned goods to give back to the Borden community. Student Council also hosts a door decorating competition between teachers to help foster school spirit. Added this summer is the senior parking spot fundraiser, which Student Council hopes to continue to provide seniors a way to show their personality while adding some character to our parking lot. 

Trap Shooting

We started Trap in the Spring of 2018 with 6 schools.  In 2019 we added a 7th school.  2020 will be our 3rd season. 

We have been 2nd 2 years in a row at the end of the year tournament.  Last year we were second by only 5 targets.   
 
Participating schools:
 
Borden
Eastern
Salem
Crawford County
Silver Creek
Henryville
North Harrison
 
We will be taking a field trip to Indian Creek Shooting Center Fall of 2019.  To be on the team you must be a member of the OC and plan to attend this field trip.   This is the introduction to the sport. That day we get an idea of potential team members.   From this point we start organizing fund raisers and getting ready for early spring shooting.   
 
Practice starts in March, competition starts in April and ends in May. 
 
We have Varsity and JV, each consisting of 5 shooters.   
Borden Athletic Department gives athletes a varsity letter for meeting requirements of being on the varsity squad.
