Don’t underestimate the importance of participating in school activities. Some of the best times and memories students have are the experiences of belonging to a club or participating in an after school activity or sport. Clubs, sports and activities are important to join just for the enjoyment that they will bring to most students, but they also allow the students to more easily make friends because the groups are small and they get to be themselves! Clubs and activities provide students with many positive experiences that help them to become well-rounded individuals who are ready for college or the workplace. It helps students to become active in their school and to feel a connection to the school and to other students. It provides a sense of pride and school spirit and it is a positive influence on our youth today. There is something for everyone! Encourage your student to get involved!
