Lester MS: School Activities

PROGRAMS

The activities program is designed to be in harmony with the middle school philosophy and its goals and strategies as stated in our philosophy. Care is taken to avoid emulating the high school activity program, especially in regard to athletics and those activities surrounding athletics.

Students have an opportunity to explore a wide variety of activities in a non-threatening environment. The activities include both group and individual participation. These activities are selected to help the student make the transition from playtime activities to group and individual participation in areas of interest both now and possibly in the future. The following are examples of, and not limited to, some of the activities that may be offered: Game Club, Cooking Club, National Junior Honor Society, Student Council, Yearbook, Intramural Sports, Chorus & Instrumental Music, and Academic Success Clubs. With a sports physical some high school sports activities may be participated in, check with administration for the specific programs.

Students participating in an after school activity must report to the appropriate area no later than 1355 hours. Any late arrivals to the activity will not be able to participate that afternoon and must immediately leave the campus. Students who are not participating in an authorized after-school activity must leave the campus. Once a student leaves the campus, they are not allowed back on after school hours.
