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!

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