Appleton Area School District encourages our students to participate in co-curriculars at every grade level. Not only these activities a great way to connect with classmates and get involved in the community, but they also develop lifelong skills such as teamwork and time management, which are essential for future success. 

Co-curriculars are more than just after-school sports. The range of activities offered is pretty phenomenal and allows students at every level to pursue just about anything they are interested in or passionate about – from languages to music to technology.  

Getting involved in co-curriculars at a young age has a positive effect on academic performance, gets students more engaged and also arms youngsters with confidence. Other reasons to encourage your elementary schooler to participate in co-curriculars include:

  • Make new friends
  • Be part of a team
  • Explore different interests
  • Develop talents
  • Acquire time management skills
