No matter what time of year, Dayspring students have a variety of special events and extracurricular activities in which to be involved.
We offer a variety of clubs every school year. Examples of clubs offered in the past have included:
Student Government– Student leaders work together to assist in official school events, plan events for the student body
Art Club – Students are instructed in different mediums that are of interest to them in a less formal environment. Students are encouraged to enter their wares in the ACSI Fine Arts Festivals. Through our art fair all can view the many talents of our students.
Yearbook – The Torch – Students are taught creativity in layout, design, and photography while producing a showpiece of their years at Dayspring. Students use their talents on the computer and behind the camera for this school-wide favorite.
Worship Team – Students learn the elements of drawing their peers into worship and praise of our Lord Jesus. They practice different instruments and learn to be in harmony with each other. The heart of the student is what we endeavor to craft for God’s glorification.
School Newspaper – Middle and High school students were invited to become journalists, reporters, and writers to develop a school newsletter that premiered in three editions.
String Orchestra – Students with a passion for stringed instruments practiced and performed together at various Dayspring events.
Ukulele – Students were offered a unique opportunity to develop their singing and playing abilities in this fun and energizing club. Students performed several pieces at the school’s yearly spring concert, much to the delight of the audience.
Home Economics– Students learned to skills such as sewing, cooking, crafts and baking in this club.
Varsity Leadership – Under the direction of our Athletic Director, Mr. Onasch, varsity leadership grew their athletic and leadership abilities. Students assisted with planning and leading the Lower School Field Day activities.
Ultimate Frisbee – High school students enhanced their soccer skills in this valuable and challenging clinic.
Volleyball – Students enhanced their volleyball skills in this valuable and challenging clinic.
Science Cinema – Students watched science & nature films then discussed evolutionary thought vs. creationism.
National Honor Society – The National Honor Society is recognized as the nation’s top organization designed to recognize outstanding high school students. Membership in the NHS is based on four criteria: scholarship, character, leadership, and service. At Dayspring, eligible students may be inducted into the NHS as sophomores, juniors, or seniors. The Dayspring chapter meets on a regular basis, and members design and participate in service activities throughout the school year, including at least one group service activity and one personal service. Students determine the projects in conjunction with the NHS adviser, Mrs. Hurley. This year’s projects include a lunchtime forum to prepare high school students for the college SAT, a Christmas card-making project to bless nursing home residents, a dinner for local public servants, including volunteer firefighters, and more!
