Quite often when school activities are mentioned, most people think of athletics; simply because they are the most visible. Kennedy believes there is something for everyone.
Research indicates that leadership is developed through activities. Kids do slightly better in school when they are involved with extracurricular activities. They’re less likely to be involved in problem behaviors. Kennedy really wants to build on that. Being connected to a group creates teamwork, collaboration and problem-solving skills. It gives the kids something to be identified and take pride in. When parents and community members are asked about the activities they were involved in, they speak as if it was just yesterday simply because they were impacted and challenged in a way perhaps they never had in any other setting. We want today’s students to have that same experience when they look back on their high school years as a really positive time in their life.
Go Kennedy Colts!
