Activities & Clubs - Get Involved!
The purpose of this club is to enlighten and educate the LHS community of the historical and cultural importance of classic films and how they reflect the culture of the society/time period in which they were made. Welcome to the Activities Website at Lakewood High School. 'LHS' is the largest high school in Jeffco, and with that said, we offer many opportunities for students to get involved. We are proud to offer students 50+ clubs and activities. Better grades, new friendships and improved time management skills are only a few of the many benefits gained by participating in extra/co-curricular activities.
Students can make a significant impact in their high school career bridging into adulthood by getting involved. We encourage ALL of our students to participate in an activity. Activities play a critical role in the education process. Research shows athletics and activities, such as music, drama, art, and clubs all support student learning and enrich school experiences.
According to the National Federation of State High Schools Association, students who participate in activities programs have higher grade point averages, better attendance records, lower drop-out rates and fewer disciplinary problems. The association also says participation in activities is a predictor of a student's later success in higher learning, a career and in becoming a contributing member of society as a whole.
Students involved in activities learn powerful lessons about teamwork, camaraderie, responsibility, hard work and self-discipline. We hope every Lakewood student has a rewarding high school experience filled with valuable experiences in clubs and activities. You only get to experience high school life once. Make the most of it in everything you do!! GET INVOLVED!!
Please see the LHS Calendar (under "Students") for a complete listing of all updated club meeting times.
