Epic (East Performance In the Community)

EPIC is a choir that is made up of choir students as well as any other student who wishes to sing with the group. The group performs at community events, churches, malls, etc. It was designed to allow those students an opportunity to be a part of a club even though they may not have room in their schedules during the day. EPIC meets one evening a week--usually on a Monday night. The idea is to have about 1 performance every two months.

LASER (Learning About Science And Engineering Research)

This organization promotes research and experimentation in the sciences and engineering at the high school level. LASER provides opportunities for students to become familiar with science and science related programs offered at the top universities in the nation. We recognize the significance of research in human affairs and the importance of humane and ethical principals in the application of research results. We have a talented group of youth who participate in many science events as well as other social events throughout the year. We also are involved with students in the elementary and middle schools. Our goal is to spark an interest in science that will carry over into career choices of the future. LASER students participate in numerous science competitions including: Texas A&M - Texas Junior Science Humanities Symposium, State and International Science Fairs, Texas Junior Academy of Science at Texas A&M, Siemans science competition, and hopefully robotic competitions in the near future.
