Student Activities and Clubs

It’s important to give students a chance to interact outside of the classroom and extracurricular activities and organizations are a great way to do that. Ella T. Grasso Technical High School has a wide range of options including everything from student council and National Honor Society to True Colors.

Current Clubs and Activities

Chess has been played and enjoyed for over one thousand years. Come see what all the fuss is all about! The Grasso Tech Chess Team meets every Wednesday after school from 3:15 to 4:45 in room 401. All students are welcome to visit and play.

Debate Team
The Grasso Tech debate team meets every Thursday after school from 3:15 to 4:45 in room 401. We are training in both the Policy and Lincoln-Douglas debate styles. All students are welcome to visit.

GSA (Gay, Straight, Alliance) True Colors Club
The GSA is made up of students of all backgrounds regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. Their goal is to support each other, spread the idea of acceptance and help to create a safe community at Grasso Tech for all students.

Interact Club
Interact is a service club for youth ages 14-18. Clubs benefit from sponsorship by individual Rotary clubs, which provide support and guidance. Interact’s global youth network is dedicated to community and international service.

National Honor Society
The National Honor Society is an organization promoting recognition for students with outstanding accomplishments in the areas of scholarship, character, leadership and service.

Peer Mediation
The Peer Mediation program trains selected students in the skills required to successfully resolve interpersonal conflicts (e.g., communication, problem solving, anger management and mediation). The Peer Mediators, in turn, work with other members of the student body who are involved in an interpersonal conflict.

SkillsUSA
Come use your club time to practice and prepare for the SkillsUSA competition. Interested in competing in Skills for the first time? Check out www.skillsusa.org/ct.

Student Council
The Student Council represents the voice of the students in the democratic management of student affairs at Grasso Tech. It is the organization through which the administration, faculty and staff as well as the student body cooperate in addressing the concerns of the school.

Student Mentors
Student mentors are seniors that serve as mentors to the incoming ninth-grade students. Their responsibilities include working with the teachers during the ninth-grade orientation on the first day of school and meeting with their orientation groups regularly during the school year.

Video Game Club
The video game club is open to all students at Grasso Tech. Members discuss the latest games and consoles in addition to playing each other on the big screen! The club meets on Fridays after school from 2:05 to 4:00 in the Information Systems shop.
