VII. Student Activities

STUDENT COUNCIL

Officers for the following school year are elected by the student body. Class representatives are elected from each class (9- 12): four seniors, three juniors, two sophomores, and two freshmen. Additional eligibility criteria are established in the Student Council By-Laws.

The purposes of this organization are to serve as a liaison between the student body and the Administration and faculty, to develop attitudes of the practices for good citizenship, to promote harmonious relationships throughout the school, to provide a forum for student expression, to safeguard the customs and traditions of the excellence of the school, to provide for the orderly direction of student activities and to promote the general welfare of the school.

THE NORTH DELTA CHAPTER OF THE NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY

Membership is open to second semester sophomores, juniors, and seniors. To be eligible, a student must have a yearly average of 90 or above. Each high school semester is considered. All students who meet the academic requirements will be placed on a list that will be circulated among the faculty (council of teachers) who will recommend the candidates for induction based on the following criteria: service, leadership, character, and achievement. Documentable reasons for exclusion must be provided if a students' name is removed from consideration. Additional information is contained in the NHS by-laws.

Back to TopMU ALPHA THETA

Mu Alpha Theta is a national high school and junior college mathematics club. Standardized test scores (90% on 8th grade achievement tests) coupled with 90 and above averages in present mathematics classes are criteria for membership for students in grades 9-12.

Back to TopCLASS OFFICERS

Grades 6-12 will elect class officers to carry out activities for their class. The election of a President, a Vice President, a Secretary, and a Treasurer will normally take place early in the fall. A student who withdraws from school and then returns is ineligible to hold a class officer position if the withdrawal occurs during the semester the election is held.

Back to TopSTUDENT PUBLICATIONS

Periodic publications include the newspaper, The Current, and the yearbook, The Crest. Students wishing to become part of the journalism (yearbook and newspaper) staffs should make their desires known to the appropriate teacher/sponsor. Selection to the newspaper/yearbook staffs will depend on academic status and teacher/sponsor selection.

Back to TopSPECIAL INTEREST CLUBS

Clubs of special interest open for membership are the Spanish Club, the Service Over Self (SOS) Club, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and The Future Business Leaders of America. Other clubs may be developed as interest dictates.

Back to TopFIELD TRIPS

Field trips with meaningful educational purpose are a vital part of our educational system. To coordinate transportation etc., field trips must be cleared by the teacher through the Administration approximately one month prior to the desired date. To the maximum extent possible, grades 1-5 will outline their trip activities prior to the start of each school year. To go on a field trip, a student must have a signed and dated permission slip from his parents. The teachers in K-5 will organize the trips with the cooperation of parents. Chaperones will be coordinated by the teacher. As a guide, one adult should accompany each five students (K-5); in grades 6-12, one adult per ten students should be sufficient. No more than one field trip will be allowed in any one week where the same students are involved. For grades 6-12, field trips will not be scheduled after April 30th.

Back to TopSALES OR FUND-RAISING PROJECTS

All fund-raising projects, or any program where goods/services are sold or solicited on campus, must be approved by the Administration. All money collected for any activity must be deposited with the school bookkeeper as soon as it is collected. Students should turn in money to the staff member responsible for the project or their homeroom teacher. No organization may keep an account separate from its school account without specific coordination with the Administration. Furthermore, fundraising under the name of North Delta for non-school events (such as student trips) is prohibited.
