The extra-curricular activities (ECA) in MRJHS are channels of learning beyond the normal curriculum and anchored to the Student Learning Outcomes. All activities, whether academic or non–academic, create a venue for growth and development of skills and character of the students. MRJHS strives to offer our students the best possible opportunity to become wellrounded individuals through participation in clubs and activities that enhance their skills and interests. The goal of our extracurricular programs is to develop life-long learners and to provide a safe and healthy environment for students to share their talents and interests. This Handbook serves to give information and guidance to all students and parents, to better understand the scope and value of the extracurricular activities.
The programs, events, competitions, and other undertakings within the scope of the extra- curricular curriculum, are considered fundamental, and provide experience that will help equip students physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally.

To be considered for an excused absence the student must notify the ECA teacher prior to the day of absence. Failure to inform will result in being marked as ABSENT.

6. ECAs (except for school clubs) are included in the report card every semester. Letter grades and comments for qualitative description are to be given as an ECA grade in the report card every semester.
