Co-Curriculars – Always in Season
Area School District encourages our students to participate in
co-curriculars at every grade level. Not only these activities a great
way to connect with classmates and get involved in the community, but
they also develop lifelong skills such as teamwork and time management,
which are essential for future success.
A Real Plus for Students
It used to be that co-curriculars were a nice extra. While
participation is still optional, co-curriculars are becoming more
important than ever. That’s because admissions criteria for
post-secondary schools keeps evolving – it’s not just GPA and ACT/SAT
test scores that matter anymore. It’s also about learning beyond the
classroom. Colleges are placing emphasis on how involved students are
outside class and in the community. Employers are also considering the
value co-curriculars have in providing real-world experience and the
leadership potential they give graduates who are entering the workforce.
A World of Opportunity
Co-curriculars are more than just after-school sports. The range of
activities offered is pretty phenomenal and allows students at every
level to pursue just about anything they are interested in or passionate
about – from languages to music to technology.
