4-H uses a hands-on learning approach to enable youth to develop the knowledge, attitudes, and skills they need to become competent, caring, and contributing citizens. This club assists in fulfilling the AAHS mission statement: "...inspiring students to serve society with compassion, skill, and vision." The 4-H Veterinary strand works to prepare and motivate students already interested in the pursuit of further education towards a career in Veterinary Science.

Character Committee

Originally, the student Character Committee was formed so that teachers were able to get student's opinion on various issues including cheating, honor code, and all-around student behavior. Since then, the Character Committee has grown to be an influential group in the student body. The Committee started the 'Character Student of the Month' awards and continues to help organize Town meetings. We are currently working to expand the freshman orientation to a freshman experience and aim to create a big brother/sister-like mentoring program.

    Global Affairs Forum

    In Global Affairs we talk. We talk about political and social issues ranging anywhere from Bird Flu to the latest situation in Iraq. In Global Affairs, we also do. Most importantly, we have fun while doing so. We are future doctors and nurses, future social activists and politicians (at least we'd like to think!), and representatives of the disenfranchised youth. The Officers run the meetings as an open forum and establish upcoming agendas. That combined with the meetings being on Friday make for one of the most laid-back atmospheres you will find at Allied.

    Responsibilities of the club include setting up a Model UN team in the Spring.

    We also manage the Op-Ed Political section of The Doctor's Notes and circulate the responsibility of contributing 'This Week in History' segments to the morning announcements. The segments focus on events that have taken place around the world within the past quarter century. By choosing such a recent time period, we hope it will surpass the realm of any ordinary history segment and get students to think about their own place in the world.

    As far as activism goes, our first ever 'campaign' will occur in Spring 2007. It will be a week dedicated to action and awareness for the Darfuri Genocide, which has so far claimed the lives of around 400,000 people and displaced the lives of millions. Since we are future doctors and nurses, we believe that we are obligated to save lives in any way we can, whether it be inside or outside of the hospital.

    Events: Genocide Week

    Meeting Times: Fridays, 10:30 - 11

    Meeting Place: Room 102

    Advisor: Mrs. Wilson

    Club History:

  • In 2004, Global Affairs ran a schoolwide debate covering the major issues of the Presidential Election.

  • In 2005, Allied's 1st Model UN took part in High Tech's Model United Nations Conference.

    Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD)

    Originally, the mission of the SADD chapter was to help young people say "no" to drinking and driving. Today, the mission has expanded. Students have told us that positive peer pressure, role models, and other strategies can help them say "no" to more than drinking and driving. And that is why SADD has become a peer leadership organization dedicated to preventing destructive decisions, particularly underage drinking, other drug use, impaired driving, violence, depression, and suicide. SADD's mission simply stated: "To provide students with the best prevention and intervention tools possible to deal with the issues of underage drinking, other drug use, impaired driving, and other destructive decisions."

    Student Council

    The AAHS Student Council is composed of the elected class officers and homeroom representatives. The Student Council as a whole attempts to meet the needs of the entire AAHS student body, addressing specific grade level concerns as well as schoolwide issues. Traditionally, the Student Council is responsible for helping organize the annual District Dance and the events of the Color Wars school spirit week.

    Events: For Spring 2007, Color Wars will take place in May, most likely the 3rd week of the month.

    World Language Club

    In a school like AAHS, there is certainly an inherent diversity that is readily apparent throughout the academic career of students. The World Language Club consists of those students who join together to promote appreciation for the various cultures that bloom in the school. The club cooperates in participating in activities that aim to help each student realize the unique customs, traditions, and holidays of many different cultures and countries. Craft making, dancing, music, and food are the varied media that the club uses to achieve this appreciation.

    The activities of the World Language Club all lead up to the main event that they produce: the International Fair. The International Fair, held in early April, is a diverse showcase of the culture and customs of myriad countries. Students taking a language course are required to create a booth representing any country in the world and engage in informing the vast attendees of the fair about their country, as the entire school is decked out in diversity.

    Events: The 10th International Fair, on April 19, 2007, will take the form of an International Cafe, adding a new twist to a long-standing tradition at Allied.
