We operate an education-based extracurricular activity program. We believe that extracurricular activities enrich the curriculum of the school by providing a variety of life lessons that will benefit our students. The extracurricular activity program provides experiences that will assist students as they develop physically, mentally, and emotionally. It is our goal for all students participating in activities to have a positive experience and maximize their potential.
The element of competition and winning, though it exists, is controlled to the point it does not determine the nature or success of the program. This is considered to be educationally and psychologically sound because of the training it offers for living in a competitive society. Students are stimulated to want to win and excel, but the principles of good sportsmanship prevail at all times to enhance the educational values of contests. Participation in activities, both as a competitor and as a student spectator, is an integral part of the students’ educational experiences. Such participation is a privilege that carries with it responsibilities to the school, team, student body, community and the students themselves. In their play and their conduct, students are representing all of these groups. Such experiences contribute to the knowledge, skill and emotional patterns that they possess, thereby making them better individuals and citizens.
