Dungeons & Dragons

 Ms. Giampaolo, Advisor

Dungeons and Dragons  (D&D) is a fantasy role-playing game set in an imaginary world based loosely on medieval myth.  The core of D&D is storytelling.  It is an opportunity for you and your friends to tell a story together. Players are characters in an ongoing fantasy story where players are able to step into the boots of mighty heroes (and sneaky antiheroes) to create their own stories in a world created by the Dungeon Master. Each player has their own character that they use to explore new and old worlds, guiding their heroes through quests for treasure, battles with deadly foes, daring rescues, courtly intrigue, and much more. This club meets on Thursday after school.

Math Team

Mr. Shippen, Advisor

The Math Team combines the excitement of interscholastic competition with academics. Every month from October through April, ten students from each of the thirty-six schools in the Massachusetts Mathematics League assemble to compete in divisional meets.

Even though ten students compete each month, the math team is not limited to ten nor is it only for the strong student. Attending practices and taking tryout tests almost assure a better understanding of mathematics. Some supposedly average students have developed a real interest or talent in math as a member. Math Team members will see new areas of mathematics and have a chance to work on stimulating and challenging problems.

The value of the math team to students has been dramatically proven by higher scores achieved on the College Board achievement tests, and by results in the state and national actuarial prize exams. Freshmen are encouraged to try out since there are positions on the team for them.

Email t.shippen@hwschools.net for more information.

Model UN

Ms. Borges, Advisor

The Model UN club (MUN) is an organization that ‘models’ the actual United Nations and its functions through simulation. The simulation occurs at local high schools and universities where students are assigned as delegates to a member nation of the United Nations, and assigned a specific committee. Research on the actual country’s position is required prior to attending the MUN conference. At the MUN conference, members of the delegation present and debate their country’s position to other students from different schools that are representing assorted nations. MUN meets every Thursday after school from 2:20 – 3:00. (You can still join MUN if you play sports!) In addition to regular meetings, the MUN club goes to approximately three conferences, or MUN events each year. Meetings are on Thursday, afterschool in Room 109.
