I'm not sure about Science Olympiad and NHS, but when I was in school, Band and Choir were considered electives - that is to say, they were classes you signed up for, not extracurricular. The band and choir also had fundraisers to participate in activities such as All-State honor events, trips to large group and solo and ensemble festivals, etc. If an $85 fee is necessary to keep extracurricular activites including sports and other activities as programs, I would support it - however it should not apply to elective classes.
One of the best things about Steamboat is the wide range of activities offered to students at the high school. I believe this is one of the major reasons we hear stories of SSHS graduates excelling in their post-academic endeavors. It would be difficult to choose which programs should and should not make the cut if $70,000 has to be removed. I don't envy those who have to make that choice.
