Act One is the theatre club at Pocatello High School. We perform 4 different shows through out the year: The first is the fall show, this is an intimate theatre experience. The second is a musical which is put on by PHS Act One and the PHS Senior Choir, this is a full proscenium show. The third is a One Act Play that is prepared and performed by the 3rd trimester Production Drama Class and is performed at the ISU One Act Festival. The fourth and final show is a good old fashioned melodrama, this is a thrust stage performance.
In addition to the four shows, we also compete in the District and state level drama competitions which are sponsored by the Idaho High School Activities Association.
Joining Act One presents an individual with not only the opportunity to be on stage, but also with the opportunities to work backstage, to build and paint set, and to participate in other technical areas of productions.

Art Club is an opportunity for students to explore art outside of art classes. Students do not need to be enrolled in an art class to participate and may join the club at anytime. Students determine what types of activities they would like do. A few past projects have included painting murals, making cards, creating mixed media art.
Regular meetings are during lunch on the second and 4th Friday of the month, with extra meeting before or after school depending on current projects.
Everyone is welcome and there are opportunities for all levels of expertise.

|Love to read? The PHS Book Club is the perfect place to do that, and meet other 'bibliophiles.' Club members select books and activities together while sharing experiences in a positive library environment. Those who join should have a reading desire, and be willing to discuss books and try ones from new categories. Book Club meets 1-2 times a month, typically on Fridays at lunchtime. We would love to have you join!|

Pocatello High School's Chess Club is an opportunity for any PHS student to have fun playing chess while improving skills. The club meets weekly on Wednesdays at lunchtime in the PHS Media Center. Because club members of all grades and abilities are welcome, the students get to play opponents with a variety of skill levels. More experienced players often help less experienced players improve.
The goal is for all the club members to become stronger players. In addition, periodically there are guest players from ISU who will play any student and provide tips and feedback to improve skills. Information on local tournaments are provided. Participation in tournaments is encouraged, not required. We hope to see you there!

National Honors Society
The National Honor Society (NHS) elevates a school’s commitment to the values of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. These four pillars have been associated with membership in the organization since its inception in 1921. Learn more about these four pillars of membership here.
Today, it is estimated that more than one million students participate in NHS activities. NHS chapters are found in all 50 states, US Territories, Canada, and around the world. Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service.
As such, NHS chapters and students are in schools that care not only about student achievement, but also community engagement.
NHS students and their peers volunteer in their communities at the highest rates and make connecting with and serving within the community a priority. The average chapter contributes:
