What We Do
The Gaming & Logic Club uses traditional board games, popular strategy-based card games and dice-based, table-top RPGs to improve students’ writing, problem-solving, leadership, teamwork and critical thinking skills, while in a fun, safe and relaxed environment.
When & Where We Meet
Our club meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 4:30-6:00 pm, in either Mr. Atchley’s (237) or Mr. Lewis’ (J-10) rooms.
Students are not allowed to participate in the club if they are failing any classes, have disciplinary issues with teachers, or if they exhibit behavior that is not school appropriate.
Every 6-week cycle, students must have grade reports filled out by all of their teachers. If they are failing, have poor attendance, or have disciplinary issues, they will not participate in club activities or meetings, until the problem is resolved.
The Gaming & Logic Club has members from all grade levels, genders, backgrounds, interests and experience levels. We welcome anyone who is interested. Whether you are totally new to gaming, or have been playing for years, you will feel right at home with our diverse group.
Come make new friends, have a good time and learn skills that will help you throughout the rest of your life.
