Homestead offers a variety of clubs and activities throughout the school year. Keep your eyes out for the more information in the school newsletter and flyers as clubs and activities kick off.
Student Leadership Council (SLC)
What & Why: Provides students opportunities to realize their potential, gives them ownership of what we do at school and helps them to find their voice.
The collective goal is to complete at least one spirit activity and one community service project each month. In the last few years SLC has worked on some projects over the course of 2-3 months as needed. Student Leadership Council also holds fundraisers, with the proceeds going towards the purchase of materials for future service projects.
POC: Mrs. Lenoir
What & Why: This ensemble has a long-standing history of bringing joy, song and a whole lot of fun to our Homestead family and community.

Stay tuned for more information about performances for the Chugiak/Eagle River Chamber of Commerce Winter Wonderland and Tree Lighting Ceremony, Homestead Choir Holiday Tour, an afternoon and evening Homestead Choir Winter Concert, North Area Festival, Music in Our Schools Month at the Simon 5th Avenue Mall and an afternoon and evening Homestead Choir Spring Concert.
We cannot wait to hear the Choir sharing in song once again! Please don't hesitate to reach out to Mrs. Johnston with any of your Choir questions or concerns. Thank you for your continued support and stay tuned for performance announcements!
