It has become somewhat of a tradition for me to write about LAHS clubs before the start of each new school year. Clubs, or “extracurricular activities”, offer a wide spectrum of benefits for the students.
Ah, but first a brief digression. When I looked up synonyms for ‘extracurricular’, I got the following list: cheating, immoral, fast and loose, illicit, and two-faced.
Hey, how was I supposed to know that one of the definitions of ‘extracurricular’ was “extramarital”? It does put a whole new spin on extracurricular activities at the High School, doesn’t it?
Well, back to the other definition. Joining a club is a great way to meet people and make new friends. Making friends with common interests can form bonds that can last a lifetime.
And there are many other benefits to be enjoyed by joining a club (or two). Students can learn leadership skills. They learn the importance of teamwork and community service. The provide wonderful experiences and add yet another dimension on the academic landscape of school.
But most importantly — they’re fun! What better reason than that to join?
Yeah, yeah, I know. Your children are having so much fun in math class that they don’t have time to think about joining a club.
