At Diablo Vista, we attempt to offer a wide range of co-curricular activities, which are open to our students. Participation in these activities helps students achieve a sense of connection with their school. These activities provide students the opportunity to make friends, socialize with a variety of people, and develop a sense of pride which comes from personal accomplishments in school related activities. Student experiences with co-curricular activities serve as a balance to the goal of the full intellectual, social, emotional and physical development. Students must have a 2.0 to participate. Participation in student activities earns Soaring Eagle credit.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT - Students are encouraged to become involved in government. We have elected student body officers, a leadership class, and elected representatives from advisory classes. Student council meetings are held monthly during E-period to plan activities and administer the student council budget. The leadership class, in conjunction with the student council, plans class competitions and various activities throughout the school year. Student government is a great way to GET INVOLVED!
MAGAZINE DRIVE - One of our annual student fund raising events is our fall magazine sale. This student fundraiser is the main source of Student Council income. Student activity programs are determined by this funding, so support from the entire school community is crucial. The DVMS on-line store is available at http://store.gafundraising.com school code 854711. REMEMBER - SAVE SUBSCRIPTIONS FOR THE FALL DRIVE THIS YEAR or use the on-line store.
DANCES – There will be three to four dances per year for Diablo Vista’s 7th/ 8th grade students only. Dances are held in the multipurpose room. Dances are for current Diablo Vista students only. Visitors or guests are not allowed. Once in the dance, students may not leave until the dance is over or their parent picks them up. Students must pre-pay for entrance to the dance. Leadership students will collect the entrance fee and permission forms on three separate days during advisory. Students must have a current school ID to enter the dance. NO MONEY OR PERMISSION FORMS WILL BE ACCEPTED AT THE DOOR. Students may lose dance privileges due to disciplinary or attendance problems. Students who are suspended or have multiple discipline referrals in a given quarter will be unable to attend dances for that quarter. Parents are to pick up students promptly at the end of the dance.
