PHILOSOPHY OF THE STUDENT ACTIVITIES PROGRAM
The student activities program at Woodrow Wilson High School attempts to meet the academic, social, and physical needs of the students. Our effects are to make every student activity a learning experience and a positive experience for its student participants. Those students participating in the activities practice the skills necessary to function successfully in the community and everyday life.
This student activities program is the major means of fulfilling those objectives, which enhance regular classroom instruction. Typically, student activities are characterized by extensive student participation in both planning and carrying out these activities.
This student activities program planned to develop desirable social attitude in situations providing opportunity for individual, small group and entire school participation. It provides ample opportunity for development of understanding and cooperation among social and ethnic groups within the student body. The activities are conducted under the conditions that increase the likelihood of carrying over to out-of-school life.
Under competent guidance, students share responsibility for selecting and evaluating the activities and outcomes. In all activities, the development of democratic leadership and the development of cooperative attitudes are major objectives.
