SCHOOL ACTIVITIES ARE OFTEN TAKEN FOR GRANTED, SAYS HALEY ALBERS, A RECENT GRADUATE FROM CHENEY HIGH SCHOOL. THEY CAN RANGE ANYWHERE FROM AHTLETICS TO BAND TO CLUBS AND ORGANIZTIONS, AND ARE VITAL FOR SUCCESS IN HIGH SCHOOL. MANY STUDENTS STRIVE FOR EXCELLENCE IN THE CLASSROOM SO THAT THEY ARE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN THESE VARIOUS ACTIVITIES. TAKING AWAY THESE ACTIVITIES ALSO TAKES AWAY THE INCENTIVE FOR MANY STUDENTS TO SUCCEED IN THE CLASSROOM.

HIGH SCHOOL TRADITIONS AND COMMUNITY PRIDE ARE OFTEN DETERMINED BY SUCCESS IN ACADEMICS, ATHLETICS AND OTHER EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES, SAYS CALEB FRYE, A RECENT GRADUATE FROM MOUNDRIDGE HIGH SCHOOL. SUCCESS IS DEFINED AS THE ACCOMPLISHMENT OF AN AIM OR PURPOSE. THIS CAN BE OBTAINED IN SO MANY DIFFERENT AREAS OF HIGH SCHOOL LIFE. IT CAN ALSO BE RELATABLE TO INDIVIDUALS IN A VARIETY OF WAYS RANGING FROM AN UNDEFEATED RECORD OR A 4.0 GRADE POINT AVERAGE. REGARDLESS OF THE GOAL, SUCCESS IS A MORALE BOOSTER AND A CONFIDENCE BUILDER TO ALL WHO ACHIEVE IT.

ZACH SHIMA, A RECENT GRAUDATE FROM TOPEKA WEST HIGH SCHOOL, SAYS IN ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT, THE COMMON ASSUMPTION ABOUT THE MAKEUP OF THIS GROUP IS THEY ARE STUDENTS WHO DEVOTE THEIR WHOLE TIME TO ACADEMIC STUDIES. HOWEVER, HIGH SCHOOL ACTIVITIES KEEP STUDENTS ON TOP OF THEIR SCHOOL WORK BY REQUIRING ELIGIBILITY RULES. STUDENTS ALSO HAVE BETTER ATTENDANCE RECORDS THAN THOSE WHO AREN’T INVOLVED BECAUSE OF THE DAILY PRACTICES AND REHEARSALS DURING THE SEASON. SCHOOL ACTIVITIES TEACH PARTICIPANTS RESPONSIBILITY AND TIME MANAGEMENT SKILLS THEY CAN APPLY TO THEIR FUTURE CAREERS.

WITH BUDGET CUTS BEING ONE OF THE DOMINANT PROBLEMS IN SCHOOL DISTRICTS, IT IS EASY TO ELIMINATE SCHOOL ACTIVITIES, SAYS LYDIA STEWART, A SENIOR AT CALDWELL HIGH SCHOOL.
