Conestoga Clubs and Activities
Conestoga High School is very proud of its co-curricular and athletic offerings, and we believe high school should be a time of exploration and discovery. We encourage our students to become involved in as many activities and athletic endeavors as they can reasonably manage and still contribute in a meaningful way. By participating in multiple activities and athletics, students will enjoy a stronger sense of school community while exploring future interests and avocations. It is our goal to help students enrich their high school experience through involvement in clubs, activities and athletics.
Administrators, teachers, parents and students will work together to accommodate each student's unique talents and interests. We do, however, understand that from time to time a student will be involved in activities which have simultaneous or overlapping obligations. In this case, students should take the responsibility to inform their coaches or sponsors of the conflict before the scheduled event or activity. By doing so, coaches and sponsors can help students plan for these conflicting commitments. Coaches and sponsors will be flexible and understanding about overlapping obligations, but must also keep in mind the best interests of the team or club in making decisions about such issues as playing time and leadership positions. The administration will support the efforts of the students who demonstrate the life skills of responsibility and planning.
All students have an opportunity to sign up for activities at the beginning of the school year. Questions about a specific activity should be directed to the faculty sponsor or to the Assistant Principal in room 130.
Students who would like to start a new club or activity should complete a Request for New Activity Form and return it to the Assistant Principal in room 130.
Activity Particaption Fee
A participation fee of $50 will be assessed to each high school and middle school student involved in sports or activities. This participation fee will be charged only once for participation in one or more activities during the 2019-20 school year. Included in the participation fee are all high school and middle school sports and activities that have a paid coach or advisor or use District-funded transportation. A list of these activities that will incur a fee is available here. Students who participate in these activities and who qualify for free or reduced-price lunch will be eligible for a fee waiver.
Updated List of Activities and Club Advisors
A frequently updated list of activities and club advisors is available here. All students can sign up for activities at the beginning of the school year but may join most clubs at any time throughout the year. Once a student joins a club, they will be encouraged to join the club Schoology group in order to receive announcements about meetings. Questions about a specific club should be directed to the faculty sponsor or the Administrator in the Activities Office.
To start a new club or activity, students need to complete the “New Activity Request Form” which is available above or in the Activities Office, (Room 130). The form requires a description of the new club’s objectives, name of a staff sponsor and a list of at least ten interested students. The completed form should be submitted to the Activities Office for approval.
