Check out all of the clubs that are offered before school, at lunch, and after school every day at GRCI!​

Art League

The Grand River Campus Art League is a club open to all students, not just those enrolled in Art.  We believe everyone is an artist and that they should tap into the creative side of themselves.  This club is what students make of it.  The Arts and Crafts we do are chosen by students. In the past, we have painted holiday cards, made and sold buttons, done face painting. The options are endless!  We meet weekly in rm T119–we run on a flex-membership model, which means all are welcome any time!

Tech Crew

The technical crew, often known as “techies” are the students behind the scenes and “backstage” to control all the technical aspects of creating a concert, play, musical, or other live performance. The roles of the students in a tech crew can vary depending on the nature of an event, and often evolves as the production does. The technical crew is in charge of operating the lights and controlling the volume of the sounds and music. In large scale production, the tech crew can consist of many students in different aspects of the production.
