It’s important to give students a chance to interact outside of the classroom and extracurricular activities and organizations are a great way to do that. Platt Technical High School has a wide range of options including everything from Student Council and National Honor Society to Platt TV and Bowling.

Come use your club time to practice and prepare for the SkillsUSA competition. Interested in competing in Skills for the first time? Check out www.skillsusa.org/ct.
SkillsUSA is a dynamic student club that enables students to compete in their given trade areas against students from other vocational technical schools. Competition starts at the local level in yearly meets. Students who finish first in their areas can go on to regional and national competitions.
The Student Council represents the voice of the students in the democratic management of student affairs at Platt Technical High School. It is the organization through which the administration, faculty and staff as well as the student body cooperate in addressing the concerns of the school.
The Student council is the student activity governing body. It is comprised of representatives from each class. Students on the council speak for the entire student body. They meet once a month for the purpose of conducting regular business and other matters, which may be brought before it for consideration.
Student Council must approve each Student Activity Program. All requests for fundraising, student activities and purchases made from student activity funds must be approved by the student council.
The Student Council also has two members who attend the COC Student Senate meetings and Student Congress from the Connecticut Technical High Schools. The students keep in touch with area schools with similar extracurricular and interscholastic programs.

For nine years, Platt Tech has been cooking/ serving dinner to the homeless community at the Beth El Center Soup Kitchen in Milford. This partnership is led by Dan Quinn, Social Studies Teacher that brings his many years of restaurant experience to the table. Once a month during the school year, teachers, coaches, students and other friends of the Platt family cook and serve dinner to the homeless at Beth El’s Soup Kitchen. It is a great opportunity for students and teachers alike to come together for this worthwhile cause and show empathy and compassion to the members of the community that are less fortunate. Some recent dishes include: Turkey Chili with rice, Turkey, stuffing and gravy, Meatloaf and homemade mashed potatoes, Pork Chops and gravy with mashed potatoes and corn. Mr. Quinn says “I want each meal to look the same like a restaurant and food to be cooked like we’re cooking for our family.”
