Clubs

There are over 30 clubs at La Reina High School. Students are encouraged to join clubs in order to explore their interests, develop leadership skills, and participate fully in the life of the school.

Students can earn an activity letter through their participation in extra-curricular activities if they earn 20 or more variable credits. Students can earn one variable credit for every 15 hours of learning experience in an activity. A maximum of 5 variable credits may be earned per activity per semester. Junior high students may carry over a maximum of 10 variable credits into the senior high division.

Commitment

Some clubs and organizations require a membership fee to help defray the cost of activities, field trips, guest speakers, etc.

While students are encouraged to become involved, they are reminded that certain activities may require a greater time-commitment and level of responsibility than others. It is suggested that students think carefully about ALL of their responsibilities (both in and out of school) and that they discuss the extent of involvement with their parents and moderators before making a commitment to a major activity.
