Many people are always on the verge of new opportunities. Students usually obtain these opportunities through various extracurricular activities. They may take on as much as seven extracurricular activities at once.

“I know that being in clubs and activities will help in the long run, although the stress from doing so many things is weighing down a lot right now,” said Nora Dukart, 10.

There are several ways students can become involved. One way is to play sports. Sports are offered during the fall, winter, and spring season. Others take a part in the variety of clubs that SHS has to offer.

Some sports that are offered are:

  • Football
  • Soccer
  • Volleyball
  • Tennis
  • Track and Field

“You will never know what taking part in all of these things might lead to, there may be a great opportunity waiting in the future,” said Talia Bailes, 11.

A lot of students also take part in activities not involved with the school. It may seem at times hard to balance a variety of things, but students say it is worth it.

“I don’t see the negative side of doing a lot of activities; they will only bring you greater chances of success in the future,” said Grace Kays, 12.
