Extracurricular programs are an integral part of the total

enriches the educational experience, promotes connectedness and a

Determination, perseverance, achievement,
respectfulness and teamwork are some of the valuable lessons that
can be attained through extracurricular participation. Through
these opportunities, we seek to offer a wholesome form of
physical, musical, artistic, social, and academic activities.
These programs play an important role in helping the individual
student develop a positive self-image.
Participation in extracurricular activities is a privilege,
one that requires commitment, fair play and accountability. These
programs provide a vital link between the school and community by
fostering school spirit and pride. Students, staff and parents
representing West Genesee are year-round role models.
The culture of West Genesee is also reflected in what occurs
before and after the normal academic day. We strive to balance
individual talent with group achievement, where student and
program development define success. While the reputation of our
school and community is enhanced whenever its representatives
excel, by far the greatest rewards and satisfactions are derived
through participation in our extracurricular opportunities.
