It's September—trees are turning colors, bonfire smoke is filling the air, students’ minds are slowly numbing to the grind of state-mandated education, and clubs are pitting against each other in an all-out bloody battle for recruits.
Recruiting tactics can vary but are all nonetheless cut-throat and vicious. Student Government even offers workshops on dictatorship and world domination thanks to the complexities of today's extra-curricular politics. The fishing club has lured a few in, the breakfast club is now offering an all-you-can-eat buffet, and, sadly, the fight club refused to tell our reporter anything. However, one club has an unseen superpower. Club leader Candice Seeme calls it “the art of invisibility.”
“The invisibility club is a really under-appreciated demographic at Westfield High School,” Seeme said. “I mean honestly sometimes it´s like people don't even see us. I think people would be surprised what goes on right in front of their eyes.”
Packed house - It was standing room only at the Invisibility Club call-out meeting.
The history of the Invisibility Club is a bit blurry. All club records are written in disappearing ink and our esteemed research team was unable to learn anything about them. However, they claim to have a long history of high-achieving members including Casper the Ghost, The Headless Horseman, and various crop circle artists.
“I joined the club because they did things I don’t think I’ve ever seen before,” new member Yousee Meenott said. “I mean, the club activities we do are really unseen in other school clubs. We go house-hunting every Halloween and make invisible blankets to sell to charity.”
The Invisibility Club brings light to the concerns of the Invisible community. They have petitioned to administration repeatedly for special seating areas and spaces for the invisible students to prevent being sat on, stepped on, or tripped over— all common occurrences for the invisible. However, the administration claims they have never seen the said petition and thus don’t notice a need to accommodate these undetectable students at the moment.
“Invisibility club offers a place for all students who feel ignored by their peers,” Seeme adds. “We all know how it feels to be invisible. Invisibility Club is a place for those that feel forgotten. Our callout meeting is in the auditorium next week. You’ll know it when you see it.”
