Being actively involved in extracurricular activities is an important part of high school. Students can explore their interests, develop leadership skills, and make a difference in their lives and the community. Here, we’ll provide information about the clubs and activities available to students at Marietta High.
Marietta has officially recognized 4-H as a school organization. In 4-H, we believe in the power of young people. We see that every child has valuable strengths and real influence to improve the world around us. We are America’s largest youth development organization— empowering nearly six million young people across the U.S. with the skills to lead for a lifetime. Our goal is "to make the best better."
4-H comes from Cooperative Extension, a community of more than 100 public universities across the nation that provides experiences where young people learn by doing. Kids complete hands-on projects in areas like health, science, agriculture, and citizenship in a positive environment where they receive guidance from adult mentors and are encouraged to take on proactive leadership roles. Kids experience 4-H in every county and parish in the country, through in-school and after-school programs, school and community clubs, and 4-H camps. It is for students age 9-18 who wish to participate in some life changing experiences.

FCCLA’s mission is to promote personal growth and leadership development through Family and Consumer Sciences Education. Focusing on the multiple roles of family members, wage earners, and community leaders, members develop skills for life through character development, creative and critical thinking, interpersonal communication, practical knowledge, and career preparation.

NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY
Each year, Marietta selects students from grades 10-12 to induct into the National Honor Society through a rigorous application process. We start the process in February and induct students in April.
The National 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 recognize 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 it’s beginning in 1921.
Today, we estimate that more than one million students participate in NHS activities. NHS chapters are present in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, many U.S. territories, and Canada. Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but also challenges them to further develop through active involvement in school activities and community service.

The goal of student council is to offer year-round opportunities for high school students and adult advisors throughout Oklahoma to develop and apply leadership and life skills. We will accomplish this goal by disseminating information for building effective organizations, recognizing individual and school achievements, supporting community service, and providing positive, enthusiastic forums for networking and sharing ideas. This is a great leadership experience for all high school students who participate, and they can get numerous opportunities from being involved. We have many new ideas for the upcoming year and are excited to see them at work. For more information, please check out the OASC website or email Kim Fraire.
