Students interested in earning an academic/activity letter must accumulate a total of ten points evenly distributed in two categories – academics and activities.
The primary goal of this letter is to reward a student for academic/activity success in a manner similar to the letter award of a varsity athlete. The award should represent a significant contribution to the school, and students will only be given points for true participation. To be awarded points for academics and activities, a student must be an active participant.
Any student interested in pursuing this letter should come to the Activities office to pick up an application. Applications are due by Friday, May 1, 2015.

WHY YOU SHOULD PAY YOUR
Why should you pay your Activity Fee? That is a good question because most parents and students don't really know where that $30 goes. The money is divided among Athletics, Activities, and PTCO. Some of the benefits of the Activity Fee are:
- All regular season Home Athletic Events are FREE with a paid Activity Fee.
- World Awareness Week is funded completely by the Activity Fee.
- Homecoming, Winter Dance, Prom, and After Prom are supported by the Activity Fee. Prices are discounted for each event with a paid Activity Fee.
The following list shows how the part earmarked for Activities is spent. In some cases the money is the sole form of funding for a particular activity. In other cases it is a supplement that reduces the cost of a product or event for students. The following activities are funded by the Activity Fee:
