Participation in extracurricular activities will help develop certain responsibilities and experiences that cannot be gained through the regular classroom. Students who participate in these activities must observe all school rules, and school assignments take priority over all extracurricular activities. Academic requirements must be met for students to participate in these activities. John Paul II Academy accepts the basic principle that extracurricular activities supplement the academic and spiritual development of youth and help develop a sense of community. John Paul II Academy also accepts the basic principle that the responsibility to maintain proper perspective in extracurricular activity participation lies first and foremost with the parents/guardians of the participants. Parents or guardians and students will be required to sign a “Code of Conduct” provided by the John Paul II Booster Organization outlining actions that are expected of all in the Catholic School environment. “Extracurricular activity’’ is understood to include all meetings, practices, games, etc. provided for the elementary school age youth of John Paul II Academy.
Participation in extracurricular activities is open to all children of John Paul II Academy or supporting parishes. For just cause, and with the approval of the supporting organization, the moderator of an activity may allow participation by children not belonging to the school. In such cases, first priority for participation shall be given to children of John Paul II Academy or supporting parishes.
