Philosophy

 

We believe that:

Student activities are a vital part of middle and high school education.

Participation in a well organized and diverse program of activities under the direction of well-qualified advisors provides students with opportunities to learn critical lessons in leadership, followership, character, communication, teamwork, decision-making, and individual potential.

The middle school/high school activities program enhances and complements the academic programs.

Our students should be assisted to achieve a manageable balance of activities and academics.

 

Program Objectives

To provide our students with opportunities to:

- Explore new possibilities
- Develop interpersonal skills

Communication

All events and activities at the high and middle schools are advertised in the daily bulletin, “The Morning Announcements.”
This bulletin is posted throughout the school and read aloud by teachers in the first period of each day.
Students are encouraged to consult the morning announcements for information on deadlines, activities, special schedules, etc.
