Activities & Clubs

Corvallis High School offers an array of clubs that serve our diverse student body. Many clubs meet during lunchtime and participate in activities after the school day. All students are encouraged to become involved in CHS co-curricular activities.

CHS Clubs

Students are encouraged to participate in extra-curricular activities, including student clubs. Student groups may not discriminate on the basis of age, citizenship, color, disability, national origin, parental or marital status, race, religion, sex, or sexual orientation. All student groups must have a statement of purpose for the group, description of qualifications for membership if any, and approval by the school administrator.

Student groups must apply to the school for recognition and are subject to school district policy IGDA-AR. All school-sponsored student groups have a staff advisor that takes an active role in planning and activities of the group. Non-school sponsored groups are not sponsored, supported financially, or endorsed by the district and will not be supervised by district staff. All such groups will have a staff monitor at all activities on school property during school hours. Student clubs meet during the lunch break or outside the regular school day.

ASB- Student Leadership

Corvallis High School believes that every student should have a voice. Student leaders represent the entire CHS student body. Leadership students are responsible for coordinating dances and spirit week, school events, and assemblies. The student leaders for the next school year are elected in the last few months of school. For more information on student leadership, contact advisor Christa Schmeder.

Mr/Ms Spartan

The annual Mr/Ms Spartan fundraising program is a tradition at CHS. Student participants join together to coordinate fundraising activities and events for local nonprofits in and around Corvallis. Activities are held throughout the year, culminating with a talent show and pageant in April. Students have raised considerable funds for charities such as the Mario Pastega House, the ABC House, the Starker Arts Garden for Education, and the Corvallis Environmental Center. For more information about this program, contact advisor Amy Knoke.

School Dances

Dances are school-sponsored events, and students are expected to dress and behave in accordance with the following school guidelines/expectations:

  • Only age-appropriate and edited music that is free of objectionable language and does not promote or blatantly glorify sex, drugs, alcohol, or violence will be allowed.
  • Students are expected to dance in a manner that is acceptable and appropriate for a school activity.
  • Inappropriate attire or dancing (such as moshing, lifting students overhead, grinding, etc.) are not allowed.
  • Lewd and unruly behavior and profane language toward authority will not be tolerated.

Any student who violates school or district policy while at a school dance will be subject to disciplinary action and will not be permitted to attend future dances until cleared by an administrator or designee. Admittance to dances may be denied by administration due to attendance, academic progress, and/or behavior.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, some dances for 2021-22 have been canceled. We will communicate via email about upcoming events.
