Students (7th -12th grade) will have the opportunity to participate in several activities throughout the school year. Some of these may be limited to an individual’s classroom and others will be school-wide activities. Parents may be asked to help with some activities, so you will be notified about these opportunities. All ideas for school activities are welcome and encouraged. We want to enhance the educational experience for students and families by providing fun, creative and varied activities. The organizations and clubs are formed as student interest dictates.
