There are many classes, clubs, resources and other organized experiences which students can participate in throughout their high school years to enrich their education. These group activities are supervised but also allow for student leadership and membership. Find out how you can get involved with the school and other students in a variety of ways and learn about your rights and responsibilities. Contact the Activity Coordinator, Ms. Butler, for information. Our Mascot is represented by Bulldogs, Rick and Bennie, in purple and gray!
There are activity classes which are electives and include hands-on activities and exposure to vocational-type skills. Students who take music, technology, or journalism will find that full participation is enhanced by after-school and extra curricular experiences. Any of these classes will require participation outside of school time and possibly inclusion in an associated club. Student government is also a class which represents the Associated Student Body (ASB) and is taught by the Activity Coordinator. Orchestra, Band and Vocal students perform during evenings, weekends and competitions. Outdoor Education class travels during school vacation to other states. Learning is enhanced while having fun and making new friends.
