CO-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES 2016-2017


Get involved! It is a well-known fact that the active and involved student is happier and generally more successful in school as a whole!

Students participating in co-curricular activities need to maintain passing grades in required subjects and must demonstrate appropriate behavior both in and out of selected activities. 

Students participating in extra curricular activities are required to provide their own transportation home in the case of after-school activities.
