Humphreys MS: School Activities

All after school clubs and activities (i.e. jump rope, art, music, math, sports, etc.)will normally meet only on days that the school follows a full day schedule, NOT on early release days. There is no extra-curricular activity bus for students who participate in these activities. Parents whose child frequently rides a bus must make transportation and/or other arrangements for the student to be picked up from school following the activity. Notification of these activities will be sent to the parent along with the day and time of the activity. In addition, due to unforeseen training, meetings, or teacher absences, an activity may be canceled without advanced notice. The sponsoring teacher will endeavor to notify students and parents of the canceled activity if time permits. If the activity is canceled at the last minute, students will be notified through the school intercom system at the end of the instructional day.

Sponsors of clubs and extracurricular activities determine academic and behavioral (disciplinary) requirements that students must meet to participate in school sponsored extracurricular activities or to hold a leadership position in a curriculum-related club, team or student organization.

Phoenix Ambassadors

The Phoenix Ambassadors program (formally known as Student to Student – S2S) is a unique student-led, school managed program that confronts the challenges of transition and provides relevant training that gives students the best possible transition experience.

Ambassadors guide students through their uncertain surroundings, offering-from a peer viewpoint- valued information, friendship, and assistance in three areas that matter most to the transitioning students:
1. How do I find my way around?
2. Who will I meet? How will I make friends? What about my relationships?
3. What do I need to know about the academic requirements at this school?
