Activities for Senior High

STUDENT ACTIVITIES

 

ASSEMBLIES, CONCERTS, PLAYS
During the school year there will be a number of school-wide performances. Student attendance at these school functions is a privilege, not a right.  Students should display respectful audience behavior.

 

EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES
Extra-curricular activities are activities sponsored by the school which do not carry academic credit for graduation. Extracurricular activities include: athletics, intramurals, clubs, etc.
 
The Board supports the concept that a wide variety of extracurricular activities should be made available to students.  However, participation in such activities is a privilege – not a right. The activity program shall not only provide opportunity for developing leadership ability, but it shall stimulate active participation of all students in appropriate school organizations and community activities.  
 
Students are encouraged to become involved in school activities organizations.
Students may initiate a school activity by securing an advisor and applying to the school administration for consideration.

Students at the Newmarket Jr./Sr. High School will be expected to maintain the following standard to be eligible for extracurricular activities: maintain at least a C- average in four courses.
