Quite often when school activities are mentioned, most people think of athletics; simply because they are the most visible. North offers many different avenues to get involved. Options range from music and arts, academic outlets to technology like Robotics. 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. 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. District 742 wants today’s students to have that same experience when they look back on their junior high school years as a really positive time in their life. North is looking at the future, for growth, change and development.
Go North Eagles!
