ART CLUB - Rick Browne, Advisor
Art club is comprised of current SHS art students. The group meets Tuesdays in the months November- February. The club meets to create art that is beyond the scope of what is possible in the traditional classroom and is a social outlet for like-minded creative students.

The organization is self-funded through fundraisers and donations.

HEALTH AND SAFETY FAIR - Nicole Sheel, Advisor
The Sandusky High School Health and Safety Fair was started in 1987. It consists of various health and safety topics which are presented by a select group of students from Mr. Opelt's and Mrs. Litten's sophomore health classes. The groups, which are made up of three sophomore students, research the topics and give a four-minute presentation to a small group of third graders from our schools. A booth is designed to enhance the presentation and shows information that is available on the topic. This also helps create a fair-like atmosphere. The Health and Safety Fair was developed with the hope that it would be a positive experience for both high school and elementary students and bring to those involved an awareness of the importance of good health and ways to achieve and maintain it.

UBS was established in 1973 by a student body of black students who got together and decided they wanted to put on a talent show that was gear toward the African American students now known as the AFRO BALL. During the month of February, we also put on the Black Expo to showcase the creative talents of the students involved in the club while honoring and paying tribute to their past black ancestors. The club meets at least twice a month except during Afro Ball time. We now run the Last Minute Shop which is an in-school store for students to buy supplies throughout the day. All money that is raised between the last minute shop and the Afro Ball go toward financial scholarships for the students participating in UBS.
