• CLUBS AND ORGANIZATIONS

    Clubs and organizations are a very
important part of the total school
program, offering students opportunities for enrichment, service and
leadership roles which are not offered in the classroom setting. All 
clubs should be academically related. Clubs and organizations meet 
at lunch and in the afternoon or evenings at times determined by the 
sponsors. Students are encouraged to participate in as many extra- curricular activities as their schedules will allow.
