Co-curricular activities are to help students see school as a positive environment, to learn how to develop satisfactory relationships with peers, and to gain confidence in their individual abilities and thus to develop a positive acceptance of self.
Co-curricular activities consist of activities not related to the instructional curriculum. Types of activities vary, but they are especially relevant to the growing interest and social skills of middle level students. These activities have several purposes: 1) to help students see school as a positive environment, 2) to help students learn how to develop satisfactory relationships with peers, 3) to help students gain confidence in their individual abilities and thus to develop a positive acceptance of self. Some examples of co-curricular activities are intramural and interscholastic sports, art club, drama club, activity nights, and dances. Interscholastic sports and dances are for seventh and eighth grade students only.
Students are not allowed to leave an activity once they arrive, unless a parent comes and speaks to a chaperon. Arrangements for transportation home immediately after an activity should be made in advance. Students must be current students of Three Rivers School to be eligible to participate in any co-curricular activity. Participation is a privilege for students who are good school citizens. A student may be denied permission to participate if he/she is having academic and/or behavioral difficulties. All school rules apply during participation in these activities. In order to participate in any activity after school, a student must attend a full day of school on the day of the activity.
