Extracurricular Activities

  • Sports

    Sports are available throughout the school year as funding permits. Required paper work includes a participation form signed by a parent and a current physical form. Any unpaid fines (i.e. lost uniforms) are to be paid per district policy. All practices are from 4 to 5:30 p.m. daily. Participants must have transportation arranged ahead of time and picked up with in 15 minutes of the activities ending time (i.e. 5:45 p.m.). Sports having competitions with other schools will have a schedule of games, which generally last until 6 p.m. or later. For safety reasons, all Clark athletes are required to have up-to-date parental/ guardian contact information. Student spectators must have parental supervision to attend scheduled games and competitive events.

     

    Academic Activities

    Non-Sports activities are many and vary each year depending on funding and staff. They are offered before during and after school. Examples include: National Junior Honor Society, Technology groups, Spelling Bee, Battle of the Books, Geography Bee, Speech and Debate, Drum Line, Informers Practice, etc. A participation form must be signed by parents and on file for those activities that occur before or after school.

     

    Assemblies

    Assemblies are planned throughout the year. Student behavior during these assemblies is extremely important and will determine the frequency of such enrichment opportunities. Any misbehavior/disrespect during an assembly may result in disciplinary action.

     

    Dances

    Dances are from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Students who are inappropriate and/or break any rules during a dance will call a parent for immediate pick up. Appropriate discipline will be applied and attendance at future activities may be denied. Dances are for Clark students only. Once you leave the dance, you may not return. Students must be picked up by 4:45 p.m.

     

    National Junior Honor Society

    Clark’s chapter of NJHS is open for membership to students in 6th, 7th and 8th grades who have spent one semester at Clark and have a grade point average of 3 .5 and above, and who have demonstrated qualities in citizenship, service, leadership, and character, consistent with national guidelines. Students are reminded that discipline problems reflect personal qualities that are inconsistent with the membership requirements of NJHS.
