We have a wide variety of extracurricular activities at our school. Many people in our school choose to focus on the athletic activities rather than the academic activities. The academic extracurricular activities often get forgotten about and no one really seems to care about them. Most people choose to join athletic activities in order to maintain a social status at our school. However, many of the teachers and school board members appreciate the academic activities as well.
Most of the students who participate in sports have a very good attitude while doing so. Many of the students try to attend all the games, even if they are four to five hours away! We are a small community supporting our small team.
