Extra Curricular Activities (EC)
Extracurriculars are activities that students participate outside of their day-to-day academic education. Extracurriculars are more than just a fun way for your child to pass the time, extracurricular activities supplement your child’s education, providing opportunities for socialization and enrichment beyond the classroom. Extracurriculars give students the opportunity to explore a wide range of interests and can introduce students to new people and new perspectives, helping them expand their worldview.
Through extracurriculars, students can discover a passion they never knew they had. This can get them thinking about what they might like to study in college or pursue as a career later in life Participating in Extra curricular activities has a social aspect in which students make friends and is a great way for students to get to know peers they don’t share classes with.
Let’s get excited about coming to school! When an extracurricular activity they feel passionately about, chances are they’ll find themselves looking forward to going to school each day.
