Extracurricular activities have become of increasing interest over the past couple of years. There has been the addition of speech club, math league, knowledge bowl, YOCO, Target, girls hockey, and of course the common sports of baseball, basketball, etc. Every different club and organization has a variety of different people involved in them. YOCO and target are both organizations that students are a part of that are against drinking while in high school. They do a lot of different fun activities throughout the school year, and it is highly supported by the administration and the community. Our sports have always had high participation, and have gone to state competition in all of them which is something our community is very fond of. Our musicals are always of high success as well, along with choir, band, and orchestra. There really is a variety of options to meet everyone's interests.
Overall my experience was good and what I like most about it is that they were able to bring back the FFA Program. We are a farming/agriculture community and had not had this program in the school for 30 years. The instructor was amazing and the program helped me decide that I wanted to pursue an agriculture degree in college. I was active for 4 years and took a 1st and 2nd place at regions for Wildlife management and also took runner up at State convention 2 years in a row. Now I am a sophmore at SDSU and pursuing an Ag Science degree - Poultry/wildlife management degree. I can thank Fairmont JR/SR High teacher Amber Seibert for all her help along with many other great teachers from my high school experience.
