Extracurricular activities include, but are not limited to choir, safety, sports, student council, and yearbook.
The purposes of such a program are:
St. Dorothy School participates in the Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) after school sports program. We participate in volleyball, football, basketball, softball, soccer, track and field.
The school academic and conduct standard must be maintained in order to participate in the sports program. School grades must be “C” or better and behavior grades must be “S” or better. If grades are lower than a “C” and/or “S”, or if the student receives two or more academic progress reports, and/or one progress report in behavior, the athlete will be placed on probation and not allowed to practice and/or play for two weeks. After two weeks the student will have a grade check form completed by all teachers and brought to the principal for approval. If the grades do improve after two weeks, the athlete will be taken off probation. If the grades do not improve after two weeks, the athlete will be removed from the team.
A STUDENT MUST BE IN SCHOOL IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE ON A GIVEN DAY. (See Absences and Attendance)
Bruin Athletics Code of Conduct – In the interest of sportsmanship and attitudes appropriate of student athletes involved in sports at a Catholic school, as outlined by the Catholic Youth Organization (CYO), the following Code of Conduct has been drawn up and must be adhered to.
To be a Bruin Athlete at St. Dorothy School, one MUST conduct himself/herself in a way that is becoming of a Christian, both on and off the field or court. A Bruin Athlete MUST be caring, fair, and sportsmanlike at all times. This attitude must be conveyed to teammates, coaches, opponents, and adults upon which they come in contact. If at any time the Code of Conduct is not followed, disciplinary action(s) will be enforced. If a child shows disrespect, either verbally or physically, it will result in a disciplinary action. Disciplinary actions are as follows:
1st offense: A written warning is given and a conference with the parent,
coach, athlete, Athletic Director and Principal to discuss the
problem and correct any wrong doing.
2nd offense: The athlete will be removed from the team and faces the
possibility of not being able to try out for the next sport.
This is not meant to hinder the student athlete at St. Dorothy School from participating to their fullest ability, but rather a guide to keep the integrity of our sports program at the highest level and to teach the student athlete to respect the game, his/her coaches, and opponents.
The qualifications are an 8th grade student with a positive attitude both on and off the court/field. This attitude needs to be reflective and complimentary of the morals and attitudes of the St. Dorothy School and community. These attitudes should include fair play, sportsmanship, and respect for school, team, self, complimentary of opponents and respectful of coaches. The student must maintain good grades in academics and behavior. The recipient of the award must play in two of the five sports that are offered at St. Dorothy School.
Field trips are to be of an educational or cultural value and directly related
to the curriculum. Field trips are privileges and students can be denied participation if they have failed to meet behavioral or academic requirements. Field trips are scheduled at the discretion of the teacher and principal. A permission slip is sent home for each class field trip and must be signed by the parent. No child may go on a field trip without this permission slip. We can only accept the official school written permission slip. Absolutely NO phone permission is allowed.
Parent/guardian volunteers driving students in their own cars must be at least 25 years of age, have a clean driving record for the past three years, a valid Class C driver’s license and current, valid California automobile insurance with limits of at least $100,000/$300,000. Each vehicle must have individual
seat belts for each student. A copy of the parent/guardian’s driver’s license and insurance declaration page must be kept on file at the school. Please see Chapter 4 and Form D.1.2.0 of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles Injury, Illness and Loss Prevention Program for more information.
St. Dorothy School belongs to The Association of Catholic Student Councils (T.A.C.S.C.). This organization can be an effective means of developing leadership, a sense of responsibility, and good citizenship among students. Students will be placed on probation for two weeks if their academic or behavior grades fall below the requirements of their office. Students will be removed from office if their academic and behavior grades do not improve after a probationary period. This is done at the discretion of the Principal and the Student Council Moderators.
