Drama Club: Be a part of students who participate in the fall and/or spring plays. Students will also get to practice their improvisational skills, work on costumes, and have fun with their friends. At different times students may attend plays in venues such as IPFW, The Embassy, and other local theatres.
FFA: FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education. FFA membership today is comprised of 610,240 student members in grades seven through 12 who belong to one of 7,665 local FFA chapters throughout the United States, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. FFA operates on local, state and national levels. Student members belong to chapters organized at the local school level. Norwell’s FFA Advisor is Mr. Kyle Bailey. Members embrace concepts taught in agricultural science classrooms nationwide, build valuable skills through hands-on experiential learning and each year demonstrate their proficiency in competitions based on real-world agricultural skills. By participating in FFA, members begin to discover their talents, values, and ambitions. Our unique awards, events and programs provide FFA members the opportunity to travel, discover careers in agriculture, and develop their leadership skills. Events that members attend and participate in include conventions, judging and leadership contests, camps, educational seminars and farm shows, field trips and many local activities. Members can apply for grants to improve their supervised agricultural experience, or for scholarships upon high school graduation to further their post secondary education. Contact Mr. Bailey for more information.

German Club: German Club is a student led organization. Knowledge of the German language is not required (Spanish students are welcome and often participate). Students who participate in German club are interested in learning more about culture and language in general. We spend our time making more connections and friendships to strengthen our language learning. Our activities vary with our yearly membership, but tend to include the following: movie nights, Kaffeeklatsche - an hour after school where students are encouraged to speak only in German (an activity that is notably difficult for our Spanish speaking friends), craft afternoons, and always a Christmas party with a “white elephant” gift exchange. A sector of our club is really interested in
conservation and the differences between German and American conservation
practices. We are looking into ways to include this interest and add a
charitable aspect to our club activities.
National Honor Society:
Honor Society (NHS) is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1921.
The Norwell Chapter of NHS strives to meet the expectation of the National Chapter by finding ways to improve both the Norwell community and the larger Wells County community we are a part of. Norwell’s NHS is involved in a variety of projects such as coat drives, teacher appreciation activities, elementary literacy and math appreciation nights, Dollars for Scholars fundraisers, and a dance marathon for Riley’s Children’s Hospital. Chosen for their high academic achievements, character, and commitment to improving the community, each member of NHS is expected to set an example for all who come in contact with them. Our hope is to inspire future generations of Norwell students and Wells county residents to continually find ways to make our community a positive place to learn, work, and live. Contact Mrs. Tucker or Ms. Stanfield for more information.
Spanish Club: Spanish club is a place where any student can come to practice their Spanish skills and learn more about culture. We love to play all sorts of games, have conversation hours, and have fiestas.
Yearbook: In yearbook, students will gain valuable experience in one or more of the following areas; page design, advanced publishing techniques, copy writing, sales, editing and photography while producing a creative, innovative yearbook which records the year's memories and events. There is a strong emphasis on journalism/business skills in this class! Participants gain useful, real world skills in time management, marketing, problem solving, teamwork and design principles.
