2014-15 yearbooks are in! Current students, see Mr. Pashak to pick up your order; alumni stop by the Jr/Sr High office.
If you've looked at application forms for jobs, colleges, and scholarships, you'll notice that there's a place for applicants to list sports and organizations. These activities demonstrate that a student can interact with others, follow direction, do more than study, and prioritize a number of tasks at one time. They also can help the student by providing them with the opportunity to meet other like-minded students, manage school stress and improve self esteem with success and distraction outside of the classroom, and improve time-management skills.
Sports, of course, count as 'extra curricular' and can help in all areas mentioned. But students have other opportunities, as well:
STAR: student volunteer organization
Students will meet regularly throughout the school year and participate in a number of volunteer projects. Regular projects include helping at the Senior Center with holiday dinners, fall and spring lawn clean up, Lions Club road clean up, and last year's favorite, working the softball throw at the Special Olympics.
See Mrs. Lovejoy or Mrs. Wegener (or any of the Lovejoy kids) for an application. First activity of the year is Saturday, October 3, with the Lions Club road clean up at 9am.
Model UN: geographical, political, and debate competition
Competitions take place at MSAC schools during the school day throughout the school year. Students meet Thursdays during seminar to research, plan and practice for competition. Competitions focus on global issues from the perspective of citizens of select countries. Contact Ms. Rapanos to learn how to get involved in Model UN.
Quiz Bowl: general academic competition
Competitions take place at MSAC schools through the fall during the school day. Students meet mostly Thursdays after school to practice and prepare for competition. Competitions are question/answer on various topics in which teams 'buzz in' to answer before the other team. See Mrs. Robison for more information.
Robotics/CometKazes: mechanical/technological competition
Students work throughout the school year to build a radio-controlled robot, meeting specifics required for competitions in the spring. Building and planning takes place mostly after school and on weekends. Competitions are usually weekdays. Contact Pete Cauchy at email@example.com for meeting dates.
National Honor Society: academic organization
Students earn initiation into the group through academic and character success. Participation in extra curricular activities is also considered. Members then participate in the initiation ceremony, one or two fund-raising activities, and host the Blood Drives throughout the school year. Direct questions to Mrs. Robison.
Student Council: student government organization
Various positions are available for students depending on grade level period of involvement. As a group, members participate in fund-raising, organize activities at student assemblies, help with prom and other dances, and arrange and host Homecoming festivities. To become a new member, students must complete and application in May listing why they would be a good addition to the council. Mrs. Robison heads the Student Council.
For the Christmas Assistance Program, you must register at these times, meet income guideline, have legal custody of the children in your household, and bring required documentation. Documentation requirements are listed on the school/district calendar postings.
Everyone is invited to the Community Thanksgiving Dinner on Wednesday, November 25. You may also call 989-496-2787 to register.
