Co-Curricular Activities
Academic Competitions

There are several different types of academic competitions. These include, but are not limited to local, regional, state, nation and world competitions. It is very exciting and beneficial for students to participate in these competitions. The cost of competitions can be difficult for competing teams and schools, and therefore, sponsors are encouraged to plan ahead and consider alternate funding sources; ie. PTA, corporate and local business sponsors. There is some funding support available for national competitions; however, this funding is limited and granted upon request from the school principal and is not guaranteed. Local, state, regional and other competition costs are the responsibility of the each school club.

All clubs attending competitions must follow the proper CMS procedures set in place for student travel, chaperones, absences, substitutes and travel procedures. All of these procedures require approval of the school principal and several require additional regional approval depending on the request.
