WPHS CLUBS & ORGANIZATIONS
Join a club or organization!
Our purpose is to provide extra-curricular organizations and activities to permit all interested students an opportunity to participate. Below is a list of clubs and organizations. Unless otherwise indicated, clubs/organizations are open to all West Port High School Students.
Student Membership Requirements:
Students are encouraged to join and participate in clubs and organizations. Membership requirements are contained in each club's constitutions and by-laws; there are general requirements regarding eligibility for membership in any club or organization.
In accordance with Marion County School Board and established school policies, certain requirements must be met by the individuals involved in activity programs.
These are as follows:
- All students involved in activities must have at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA (9th and 10th graders may sign a "contract" in specific situations) and meet the club's requirements. Freshmen must have been "promoted" from 8th grade. Students may not have a fine on the "debt list".
- Students involved in any activities, whether on or off campus, are governed by the Marion County Code of Student Conduct.
- Students must complete a student participation and Parental Approval Form prior to joining any club.
Student Participation Guidelines:
In addition to the grade point average requirement, a good discipline and attendance record are important. A student is not to attend a club or school sponsored function on days when he/she has not attended school. It is the sponsor's responsibility to enforce this policy.
