Welcome to the Wrightstown Chapter of FBLA's Website! Future Business Leaders of America is an active club in Wrightstown High School that aims to prepare students for the real-life business world they will encounter in the future. The club hopes to expose students to the many facets of business, whether it be by competing in a public speaking competition or touring a local corporation. FBLA emphasizes strong organizational skills, effective communication, strong work ethic, and willingness to positively contribute to society, among other assets coveted by future employers.
We continue to build on the strong program put in place by our predecessors. This includes a large participation in the FBLA business competition, tours of a local business, team-building trips such as paintball, real-life business experience obtained by running a merchandise and concession stand during sporting events, perhaps a speaker or two demonstrating an area of their business expertise, and an end of the year banquet. We encourage any prospective members to not hesitate to approach any FBLA officers or FBLA advisor, Mr. Doell for information regarding the club.

The Spanish Club promotes enthusiasm for learning the Spanish language and culture. This club is open to all High School Spanish students. The club meets about once a month, usually after school. The students decide the projects and activities for the year. We usually go bowling and to November Folk Fair in Milwaukee. We go to authentic Mexican restaurants to experience the Mexican cuisine. Every other June, students from the Spanish Club go to a Spanish-speaking country such as Mexico or Costa Rica.
In June 2008, we went to Mexico to visit Mexico City, Mérida, and Isla Mujeres. We sell Seroogy candy bars and Easter candy in the spring to raise money for the trip. Also, we run concession stands for sporting events to raise money as well. Furthermore, we conduct a drive to collect school supplies for an impoverished school in Mexico. On our trips, we deliver these collected items to the school. It is a way to give back to those less fortunate. We also have a bowl-a-thon to raise money for an orphanage in Mexico. There are not any dues in the Spanish Club this year.
Each year, we vote on club officers.

"Science Club is a group of students interested in learning more about science. We participate in the WPS Solar Olympics. Every May we put together a number of projects that have a relation to solar technology. These include making a solar mini-car, a solar water heater, solar cooker, and solar sculpture. We also participate in creating an essay, T-shirt and photograph. We have won two third place awards in the three years we have competed. Science Club also goes on a field trip once a year. In 2006, we went to the Discovery World Museum in Milwaukee. Plans are underway for the Science Club to go to the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago in 2007."

The Diversity Club at Wrightstown High School was organized after student leaders attended several annual Diversity Leadership Conferences sponsored by the Green Bay Area Public School District. Because of this experience, the WHS student leaders thought it would be beneficial to the school and community to form a Diversity Club to promote awareness and tolerance of differences despite race, ethnicity, social class, gender, sexual orientation, and disability, among others.
The Diversity Club was organized and members were asked what they wanted the Diversity Club to represent and accomplish. Students wanted to see an end to judgments and bullying. The members wanted the student body to become more knowledgeable, tolerant, and accepting of each other despite differences. Members wanted the club to be a welcome place where people felt accepted and respected.
The Club is ready again this year to further its goals through several activities and events. Social/movie nights to view films that have a diversity theme; lunchroom Mix-It-Up days; and attendance at the Diversity Leadership Conference in the spring are examples of activities that support the club’s efforts to educate themselves and others and put an end to intolerance, bullying, and judgments.
Diversity Club is comprised of students whose voices are unique and compassionate and whose actions work toward respect for individuality and differences in their school, community, and the world they will enter in the future.

Creative Writing Club
The Creative Writing Club at Wrightstown High School promotes and encourages a culture of creative expression through writing. Club members enjoy writing figuratively to express their perspectives about life and, in the process, stimulate their intellect and imagination. Creative dialogue is also encouraged when students meet to exchange ideas and workshop fellow writers’ work. Members of Creative Writing Club meet every third Wednesday of the month at 7:40 a.m. in Mrs. Sauberlich’s room. New members are always welcome.
Club members compose a variety of creative writings including poetry, short story, and novel chapters. Select writings will be published on a link through the school’s website (Intranet), along with information as it develops on the club’s activities; writing workshops and contests; literary arts scholarships, etc. Members can also participate in a Poetry Reading as part of the Fine Arts Night in spring.
