Co-curricular activities are an important part of our total school program.  Students are encouraged to participate in one or more activities during the school year.  Watch and listen for announcements about the various activities as the year progresses.  Since many times more than one activity is scheduled at the same time, some students may have to select which activity to participate in during certain parts of the school year.  If a student chooses to participate in the dramatic arts production and another extra-curricular program at the same time, students will be encouraged to participate in a "non-lead or subordinate" performance role for that production.  Exceptions may be allowed with mutual agreement by activities sponsors.  Students shall be responsible to communicate their involvement in more than one activity to their sponsors at the beginning of their activity season realizing that dual involvement may affect their playing/performance time as determined by their sponsors.  Curricular activities shall take a priority over extra-curricular activities, and school programs shall always take a priority over outside school programs if a conflict exists.  Students are not to drop out of one activity to begin another during the same calendar season.  It is always best to complete what you begin!  Exceptions to this guideline will be granted only with mutual consent of activity sponsors.
