EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

An Activities Fair is organized during the lunch periods in the early fall to acquaint students with the wide variety of extra-curricular activities available at DPM. Students are encouraged to become involved in school-sponsored activities.

ATHLETICS

Interscholastic Sports Program

A variety of interscholastic sports are provided for both boys and girls on a seasonal basis. Teams representing Deer Path Middle School compete against neighboring middle schools. A schedule of the interscholastic programs available to 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade girls and boys is included in the Athletic Handbook section of this publication.

An interscholastic athletic fee will be assessed to participating students (the amount varies by sport). This fee will help defray the costs of coaches, referees, uniforms, and transportation.

These activities are available to the entire student body and are scheduled over short periods of time. A schedule of intramural activities offered throughout the school year is included in the Athletic Handbook section of the DPM Handbook.

CLUBS

Student Council

A student representative is elected from each 5th through 8th grade homeroom. Meetings are held both jointly and by East and West Campuses separately.
