Participation in the Performing Arts Club is dependent upon maintaining passing grades in all subjects, not just a passing GPA. Attendance at all required rehearsals for the role you are undertaking is mandatory.
This club requires the same amount of commitment as sports. It is expected that each member of the Performing Arts Club will attend every rehearsal and club meeting. Students who do not attend each rehearsal run the risk of having their role given to another student. Students will be given a calendar ahead of time and must be aware of the schedule with any conflicts at the beginning of each run.
