Extracurricular programs are an integral part of the total educational process at West Genesee. Program participation enriches the educational experience, promots connectedness and a sense of belonging, and contributes to the development of a well-rounded student.

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.
