An important part of Norman Thomas High School is the extra and co-curricular program. Students at Norman Thomas have a variety of activities open to them.  There is a club for almost every interest at Norman Thomas.  There is also an opportunity to start your own, new club. Every student should take part in an activity some time during high school.

**To receive a Norman Thomas High School Community Service Award at graduation, students must meet the minimum school and community service requirements by the end of their senior year.**

For all information about extra and co-curricular activities, see Mr. Thomas Dunn in Room 623.
