East Pennsboro Area High School Activities & Pay-to-Participate
 
For a school of its size, East Pennsboro Area High School offers an extensive activities program for our students. These opportunities exist as an extension of the classroom, where the students may participate in something they are passionate about, while furthering their experiences towards future success.
 
Our award-winning Panther Marching Band performs at all football games and goes on the road to delight music lovers with its showmanship and musical precision.  Small band and choral ensembles demonstrate their musical talent in the community throughout the year.
 
The annual Fall Play and Spring Musical are the talks of the town, with aspiring young actors and actresses entertaining audiences with a wide array of performances (e.g., And Then There Were None, Shrek, Annie, A Funny thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Grease, Matilda, The Music Man, West Side Story, South Pacific, Anything Goes, Singin’ in the Rain, Fiddler on the Roof).
 
The East Pennsboro Board of Directors has instituted a fee associated with extra-curricular programs and activities that are conducted at a cost to the District. The fee for this school year, for activities and clubs, is $27 or $13 per activity, per student. Those who can produce District documentation confirming reduced or free lunch are assessed $11 and $0 respectively.  The fees for activities vary depending upon the tier into which they fall (see below).  The maximum per student charge in the school year is $100 for all fees and a family maximum of $200.  While we will do everything possible to track these costs, we ask that you inform us when you approach either maximum so that we do not overcharge you. Please make check payable to ‘EPASD’.
