Extracurricular Activities

BASIS attempts to align clubs and extracurricular activities offered through the school with the interests of the students. As a result, the clubs and extracurricular activities differ among the various campuses. Nevertheless, each BASIS campus offers a wide array of clubs and extracurricular activities. Learn how to support BASIS extracurricular activities through the Arizona Tax Credit Program.

 

We are pleased to offer a wide variety of extracurricular activities this fall in the areas of sports, enrichment, and academic resources. Each program is overseen by an activity manager who is responsible for promoting the activity and providing specific information about expectations and dates. The purpose of this publication is to provide the contact information, general descriptions, and sign up forms for the activities.

 

Questions regarding sign-up procedures or tax credit may be emailed to Julie Kearney at julie.kearney@basisscottsdale.org or Mariah Nutter at mariah.nutter@basisscottsdale.org  Questions regarding a program must be emailed directly to the Activity Manager.

 

Extracurricular Programs begin September 11, 2013 unless otherwise noted. In order to register for an Extracurricular Activity, please complete the Extracurricular Registration Form (available in the front office). Please complete a separate form for each activity and each student. Payments will be made through SMART for Charters. Additional forms are located in the front office. Completed forms should be turned into the drop box by the Operations Office. Students waiting for an extracurricular to begin may attend Late Bird and will not be charged for the time before their extracurricular start time. Students who use Late Bird after the extracurricular end time will be charged a drop-in fee for that day. Extracurricular activities will not meet during the week of September 30th through October 4th due to Fall Break, as well as any other calendar holidays.

Mission:

 

- To increase awareness of existing and potential renewable energy sources at a local and national level.

 

- To perform research and submit papers for publication in high school and professional journals.

 

- To help advance progress in the development and deployment of renewable energy in the United States.

This is the kick-off of a different type of school organization at Basis Scottsdale. The immediate goal of our organization is to get the kids organized and focused with some definite, attainable short term projects: Awareness posters, science fair projects/submittals and feasibility studies of some longer term projects. The emphasis in all cases will be renewable energy; generation, storage and integration into the existing power grid.

The longer term projection for the organization is limitless. Eventually, I would like to see the kids build and operate their own laboratory as well as host publications.

I have seen, first hand, what an energetic teenager can accomplish. Their minds are nimble and open to all possibilities. Why not bring this remarkable resource to bear on one of the biggest challenges facing humankind?

The National Honor Society (NHS) and National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) are the nation’s premier organizations established to recognize outstanding high school and middle level students. More than just an honor roll, NHS and NJHS serve to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character (and Citizenship for NJHS). These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since their beginnings in 1921 and 1929. Today, it is estimated that more than one million students participate in activities of the NHS and NJHS. Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through the active involvement in school activities and community service. Eligible students must be committed to the values of other organization, maintain a 3.3 GPA for NHS and a 93% average for NJHS.
