Zonta Z-Club:
(Advisors: Mrs. Robinson & Mrs. Ingolia)

HHCA's Zonta Z-Club celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. All upper school girls are welcome to join the Z-Club. It's purpose is to foster a spirit of service among the young women throughout the school, the local community, and beyond. HHCA's Z-Club sponsors several events during the year, including:
    
Collecting non-perishable food items and donations for turkeys for Bluffton Self Help’s Thanksgiving Food Drive.
Sponsoring a school-wide Operation Christmas Child campaign to fill shoeboxes with goodies for impoverished children around the world.
Organizing an “End It Day” fundraiser in February to raise awareness about human trafficking. Last year, we raised $300 for Fresh Starts Healing Hearts (a local freedom organization changing the lives of young women).
Hosting an annual Blood Drive in the spring--one pint can save three lives.
Conducting a culminating kindness-oriented event for our school community. Last year, we held “Mayfair” for all upper school students. There were food trucks, game stations (with corn hole and spike ball), sidewalk chalk, music, and dancing. The “cost” of attendance was a non-perishable food item for Bluffton Self Help.

Teens for Healthy Youth
The mission of Teens for Healthy Youth (THY) is to promote positive teen health through:
Leadership
Positive Youth Development
Peer-to-Peer Education
Advocacy
Community Service
We are going to have a table and several volunteers at the Out of the Darkness Walk this Sunday to benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. I will share photos from the event with you Monday. 
 
The photo at the top of this email is an example of the art that some of our members completed for the Chalk the Walk for World Kindness Day.
 
We create service projects and learning opportunities related to substance use prevention, suicide prevention, bullying prevention, mental health awareness, stress awareness, teen violence awareness, the campaign for tobacco-free kids, and self-harm awareness.
 
Math Club Mentors
We have 25+ LS students in this Club with 12 high school volunteers. Below is an insert that we sent out in an informational packet. Let me know if you need anything further. You may come to the club meeting for photos if needed.
Dear Lower School Families,
 HHCA is excited to announce an exciting opportunity for 2nd-5th grade students! 
Our new after-school MATH CLUB will begin on Wednesday, October 6, from 3:30-4:45 PM, and will meet in the Lower School Lent Suite (Room 119). 
 
The club, which will continue to meet on Wednesdays, 3:30-4:45 PM, will be led by Dr. Swati Debroy. Dr. Debroy has a PhD in Mathematics and is an Associate Professor at USCB. She is a gifted teacher to curious learners.
 
The goal of this club is to instill an intrinsic sense of value and wonder of mathematics for our Lower School students. Participation in Math Club will be of great benefit to any student who loves learning. As an added bonus, Dr. Debroy will coach students who are interested in competing in Math Competitions on the state and national level.

FCA - Fellowship of Christian Athletes
We meet on Wednesdays and spend time with guest speakers and small groups encouraging student athletes to be good examples for Christ on our campus, in competition, and in the community.  We participated in and hosted Fields of Faith this year and participated in leadership and athletic camps throughout the year.  We also have had student athletes participate in FCA "Serve" which finds ways to serve in the community together with other schools in the area.  I hope this helps and please let me know if you have any questions.

Battle of The Books
The battle of the books club is a super fun and interesting group of students who all share a love of reading and competition. During a normal meeting we will discuss upcoming events such as the B.O.B. competition and quiz others on books we have recently read and authors we need to know. We all love to talk about what we have recently been reading as well as what we are currently doing in school. It is a fun group of students who all love the club they are in and work together to make the most of the time they have together.

Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica
Hilton Head Christian Academy’s chapter of the Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica has been named after the southern coast of Spain, known as “La Costa del Sol”.   The Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica has two levels of membership.  If a member is not currently enrolled in a Spanish course, the student remains in the Sociedad as an Associate Member until graduation. Students who are currently enrolled in a Spanish course or have completed the highest level of Spanish offered by the school remain in the chapter as Active Members.  Members of La Costa del Sol are involved in a variety of activities throughout the HHCA community.  These include achieving academic excellence in all courses, tutoring HHCA students in Spanish, providing mini-Spanish lessons to children in the lower school,  and hosting final exam study sessions. 

Below, I have included the information that is  listed in the Student Handbook for the Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica:

●Student must be actively enrolled in a Spanish class (3rd semester of high school Spanish or higher).
●Student must have a 90 average in all Spanish classes.
●Student must not have failed a class due to attendance or grades.
●Student must participate in the National Spanish Exam or National Spanish Assessment at least one time while a student at Hilton Head Christian Academy.
●Student must demonstrate good character, leadership, cooperation, honesty, service and commitment to others.


International Thespian Society
The International Thespian Society is the student honorary division of the Educational Theatre Association recognizing excellence in high school theatre. Schools join the International Thespian Society by chartering a Thespian troupe, which serves as the honor society for their theatre student artists and technicians. The troupe recognizes and rewards student achievement by inducting eligible students into the International Thespian Society.
Students in grades 9–12 who attend schools with active high school Thespian troupes can earn lifetime membership in the honor society. Troupe directors and leaders track student achievement and determine induction eligibility using a point system based on the quality and quantity of each student’s work in theatre and related arts. Thespians receive a wide range of benefits and opportunities throughout their high school careers and become Thespian alumni after graduation.
 

As a Thespian, you uphold the Thespian motto, “Act well your part; there all the honor lies.” You’ll find that this motto and the theatrical, leadership, communication, and organizational skills that you develop as a Thespian will serve you well for the rest of your life.


National Honor Society

The National Honor Society, or NHS, is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to honor sophomores, juniors and seniors who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1921. A minimum of a 4.0 cumulative GPA is required to apply, as well as participation in extracurricular activities and community service. Applications take place in the spring of each year, beginning with sophomore year. NHS is looked very favorably upon by colleges and universities nation-wide.  NHS members participate in service projects, tutor their peers at school, and actively seek out ways to better their school environment. 

Junior Beta Club (Davis)

    The Junior Beta Club serves as the honor society for middle school students in grades 7-9. Membership is awarded based on academic achievement, after one complete year of middle school. Our motto is to serve others in gratitude for the gifts we have received from God. We participate in school wide fundraising and service events throughout the school year.

Environmental Club

Environmental Club: HHCA students become environmental entrepreneurs as they spearhead projects that help protect our local environment and help create a "greener" campus.  Current project examples include: Creation of repurposed bike racks, reducing use of one time plastics and non-biodegradable waste in the cafe, and the organization of a student uniform drive to reuse outgrown clothing.

Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos


Student Leadership Team

Goal: To create a student-led school.
This team meets 4 times a week with Mr. Smith, Mrs. Ingolia, and Mr. Gray to develop student leaders who will have a positive impact on our campus.  We plan, organize, practice and are intentional in creating a culture where the students can have the best high school experience possible. We focus on being positive and supportive while trying to eliminate criticism and judgment. This focus came from directly from our students as they partnered with professional school culture speaker Mr. Jason Jedamski. We began with 12 students, then 25, 35, 45 and are currently at 65 US students. 25% of our upper school students are part of this leadership
