Storm Lake High School works with students in getting them involved in extra-curricular activities. This year is no exception as the Activities Fair 2004 will kick off on Friday, March 5 at 8:30 p.m. Students in grades 9-11 will attend the fair, and eight grade students will be bused from the Middle School to participate as well.
The Activity Fair, sponsored by members of the Student Assistance Team, has made a commitment to making Storm Lake High School a safe, interesting, and stimulating environment for all students. Students who are involved in extra-curricular activities, set themselves up for success and SLHS has over 30 such activities.
"I went to a Leadership Conference as a student council representative my senior year at Storm Lake," said Sarah Stille, a 1997 graduate. " I now teach leadership at the University of Northern Iowa and all of those extra high school experiences guided me into this profession, so you just never know the impact this has on your life until later."
Members who explain the dynamics of their organization set up activity booths in the Student Center and encourage others to join their organization. Statistically students who join activities have a more positive and more meaningful high school experience. The team's hope is that this carries over into adulthood and perpetuates as a positive influence in our community and in society.
The Storm Lake Student Assistance team encourages parents to ask their teens what their interests are and have them look for at least one activity that will help stimulate that interest. Promote and be a role model by getting involved yourself, the team advises high school parents.
