Club/Activity Day Clarification
The Club/Activity Day schedule has many purposes that originate in the mission of Capital High School. Aside from affording students recreational/avocational opportunities, we believe that Club/Activity Day should offer students enrichment opportunities that extend beyond the usual extra-curricular and co-curricular offerings. This should give rise to a stronger sense of “being” (efficacy and purpose) with respect to the relationship of the Club/Activity to the individuals who comprise its’ membership and between the individual(s) and the school, in general. So that we might ensure that at least this occurs, Club/Activity sponsors and members should understand and embrace the following: Each club will elect five officers (Chair Person; Vice Chair Person; Secretary; Treasurer; Sgt. At Arms) A roster sheet requesting identifying information about the office holders will be completed and submitted to the administration. A form has been created for this purpose. It will be provided to you in the near future after Club/Activity rolls have stabilized. (Mrs. Young) Each Club/Activity will be provided an abbreviated copy of “Roberts Rules of Order” as a guide by which to conduct meetings. (Mr. Giles) It is expected that each Club/Activity will participate in the “May Fair” spring carnival if it is held. Club/Activity Chair Persons and sponsors will comprise committees to assist in organizing May Fair. Each Club/Activity will be expected to participate in our “Step-Up Day” for rising 9th graders. (Ms. Bailey, Mrs. Cruikshank, Mr. Giles, Mr. Ramezan, Mrs. Young) Each Club/Activity will be expected to participate in some “school based” community service project at least once each year (ex. Campus Beautification – Grounds keeping). Community service projects may be completed off campus, as well, as a means of meeting this requirement with the approval of the principal. An outline of the community service project is to be submitted for approval to the administration of the school. This outline will include a description of the project; cost estimates if any; needed materials; timelines for completion; etc. A form has been created for this purpose, also. It will be provided to you in the near future after Club/Activity rolls have stabilized. This completed form should be sent – electronically – to Mr. Ramezan. Awards/prizes may be given for the best projects.
