How to Remain a Member in Good Standing

  • Attend all meetings.  Meetings will be held twice each month.  On the first Wednesday of each month, an after-school meeting will be held from 3:05-3:35. On the third Wednesday of each month, a meeting will be held during club period.  If you must miss a meeting, you must meet with Mrs. Wright during break the following day.  Missing more than 2 meetings without an excused reason may result in dismissal.  Mrs. Wright will determine what is excused. 
  • Participate in ALL projects.  Members may miss NO MORE THAN one during-school project and one after-school project.  If you are unable to participate in a project, you must preapprove it with Mrs. Wright.  Mrs. Wright will determine if your absence from the activity is excused or unexcused.  Exceeding the allowance of missed projects or failure to have your absence preapproved may result in dismissal from the club.
  • Demonstrate good behavior.  Junior Civitans should display respectability, trustworthiness, and leadership qualities.  Therefore, Junior Civitans should not receive discipline referrals.  Discipline referrals will be checked at the end of each six weeks.  Discipline referrals may result in dismissal from the club.
  • Maintain good grades.  Junior Civtans should demonstrate dependability and leadership qualities.  Therefore, members should maintain an overall “C” average in each course.  Every member must show Mrs. Wright his/her report card at the end of each six weeks.  This must be done within 3 days of receiving report cards. If a member’s grades have dropped below a “C” average, he/she will be put on probation for the next six weeks.  At that time, if the member’s grades have not been brought back to a “C” average, he/she may be dismissed from the club.  If the member has brought his/her grades back up to a “C” average, he/she will be reinstated as being a member in good standing.
