For many, the first day of school in a new building can be overwhelming. In order to integrate new students into the school, Creating United Bonds Club fosters positive relationships between freshmen and upperclassmen.

C.U.B. Club was created by a group of students who attended a Butler leadership camp in 2016. Their task was to create a club that would unify students. Planning for the club took place during the 2016-2017 school year and was open for students to join this year.

“We saw that everyone in our school seemed to only hangout with people in the same grade as them,” senior and public relations officer Kelsey Rairden said. “We wanted to do something to change that.”

In the beginning of the semester, freshmen and upperclassmen were paired up according to similar interests. The upperclassman serves as the freshman’s mentor.

“It can be scary being a freshman because you’re instantly surrounded by people you don’t know,” Rairden said. “We hope this club offers gives those students guidance.”

The club’s next meeting is a mock lock-in at the school on Saturday, Dec. 9 from 7-11pm. The lock-in will include games, movies and pizza paid for by the donations raised by a fundraiser the club held at Rockstone Pizzeria in September.

“We wanted to do something that would allow everyone to get to know each other better,” Rairden said. “I’m excited for a fun night.”

C.U.B. club meets irregulary in room H111. Applications will be available next semester to apply for a spot in the club during the 2018-2019 school year. For more information, contact club sponsor Kyle Goodwin here.
