Non Athletic Activities & Clubs
SCHOOL SPONSORED ACTIVITIES
Math League runs from early November to early February. Each school competes with an unlimited number of individual participants, along with a team event that has a maximum of 8 participants. The schools in each division compete in five meets each season. At each meet, every student participates in two individual events, and 8 students from the team participate in a team test to end the meet.
Spring musical auditions are held in February with performances the last week of April/early May. Incorporating acting, singing, and dance to tell the story, the musical is typically the largest scale production of the school year. Rehearsals are after school with an occasional Saturday for eight weeks. A total of four performances are held. Students may audition if they would like to perform in the production. Students may also participate behind the scenes on set building, painting, design, operating lights and sound, costuming, hair, makeup, props, directing, stage managing, publicity, and playing in the orchestra. Between cast, crew members, and pit orchestra members, there are about 50-70 students per year who participate in the musical.

One Act Play
The One-Act Play is a unique theatre experience in that the show competes with other schools across the state. Rehearsals take place after school for six weeks and must follow a very specific set of rules for production. The show can be, at most, 35-minutes long and is disqualified from competition if it goes over. The set not only has to be transportable but must also fit into a 10'x10' square. Subsection competition is against five other schools and is critiqued by three judges who determine which three shows will advance to sections. The winner of the section tournament advances to state (the school that takes 2nd place at sections is the alternate for the state competition).
