Black, Indigenous, People Of Color (BIPOC) Student Group
Advisor: Jenny Kordosky
Great River hosts space for multiple groups for BIPOC students. These are student initiated, led, and self-determining. BIPOC staff is available to offer supervision as needed and any BIPOC student can choose if and how they'd like to participate.
Gender & Sexuality Alliance
Advisor: Charlie Zieke
Gender and Sexuality Alliance is a group of students who identify as LGBTQ+, as well as folks who stand in solidarity. We meet weekly to offer resources, raise funds for local organizations, and create a welcoming, safe(r) space at GRS. GSA is student-led by a collective cohort of active adolescent leaders.
Advisor: Michael Flood
There are three robotics teams to choose from, meeting weekly:
Lego (FLL) robotics for 5th-7th graders. Small robots.
FTC robotics for 7th-12th graders. Medium robots.
FRC (No Mythic) robotics for 9th-12th graders.
Music Performance: Coffee House, Theater, & Choir
Advisor: Zack Scott & Caroline Miesle
Students of all talents and musical abilities have the chance to make sweet sounds at GRS. Our twice-annual Coffee House, an open mic tradition, offers students a stage for sharing their jams with the world. Theatrically-inclined GRS students have multiple opportunities to show their stuff on stage, from our annual spring musical to one-act performances.
