Extra Curricular Activities & Clubs
Extracurricular activities are
voluntary and students who participate do not receive a grade for
the activity. Typically, extracurricular activities occur
after school hours, but some, like chorus, may also occur
during the school day. In September of each year, the school
administrator will publish a list of extracurricular activities
that have been approved for that school year. Eligibility
requirements will be reviewed with the coaches and advisors as soon
as these individuals have been approved by the board.
Students must be passing all subjects if they are to participate in
extracurricular activities. Students who are failing a subject at
the end of a marking period or when progress reports are completed
will be ineligible to participate until the next marking period.
Extra curricular activites are open to students in grades
