STUDENT MESSAGES

For Use Through November 26, 2016
ARIANA COKER, A SENIOR AT SHAWNEE MISSION WEST HIGH SCHOOL IN OVERLAND PARK, KS KNOWS THAT PARTICIPATING IN HIGH SCHOOL ACTIVITIES CAN HAVE MANY BENEFITS. ACTIVITIES CAN HELP ENSURE THAT STUDENTS ARE MAINTAINING GOOD GRADES SO THAT THEY STAY ELIGIBLE TO BE ON THE TEAM. IT IS COMMON THAT PARTICIPANTS IN ACTIVITIES HAVE GREATER ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT THAN NON-PARTICIPANTS. THE MOTIVATION TO STAY ON TOP OF GRADES IN ORDER TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR ACTIVITIES ALSO LEADS TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF TIME MANAGEMENT SKILLS THAT ARE IMPORTANT AS ONE MOVES THROUGHOUT LIFE.

A MESSAGE FROM THE KANSAS STATE HIGH SCHOOL ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATION AND THE STUDENT ADVISORY TEAM.

For Use Through November 26, 2016
TEL WITTMER, A SENIOR AT HOLTON HIGH SCHOOL NOTES THAT THE KANSAS STATE HIGH SCHOOL ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATION SPONSORS 14 ATHLETIC ACTIVITIES AND 8 NON-ATHLETIC ACTIVITIES. MANY STUDIES HAVE FOUND STUDENTS WHO PARICIPATE IN ACTIVITIES HAVE HIGHER GPAS, TEST SCORES, HIGHER ATTENDANCE RATES, LOWER DROPOUT RATES AND LESS SUSPENSIONS. SCHOOL ACTIVITIES CAN HAVE A POSITIVE IMPACT ON STUDENTS THAT TRANSITIONS INTO ALL ASPECTS OF LIFE.

ROBERT F. KENNEDY’S QUOTE, “ONLY THOSE WHO DARE TO FAIL GREATLY CAN EVER ACHIEVE GREATLY,” HAS A VERY SPECIAL MEANING FOR TAYLOR WILLIAMS, A RECENT GRADUATE FROM PAOLA HIGH SCHOOL. RISK CAN BE A GOOD THING. CHALLENGE YOURSELF TO FIND THAT POSITIVE RISK AND TAKE IT, WHETHER DECIDING TO RUN FOR STUDENT BODY PRESIDENT OR TAKING THE LEAD ROLE IN THE PLAY. DON’T WAIT UNTIL YOUR SENIOR YEAR TO GET INVOLVED. MAKE THE MOST OF EVERYDAY YOU GET IN HIGH SCHOOL.

A MESSAGE FROM THE KANSAS STATE HIGH SCHOOL ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATION AND THE STUDENT ADVISORY TEAM.

For Use Through November 26, 2016
THERE ARE SOME STUDENT ATHLETES THAT MIGHT HAVE THE MINDSET THAT THEY JUST NEED TO MAKE THE MINIMUM GRADE, JUST DO WELL ENOUGH TO STAY ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE. CALEB FRYE, A SENIOR AT MOUNDRIDGE HIGH SCHOOL DISAGREES WITH THIS ATTITUDE. STRIVING TO MAINTAIN THE HIGHEST ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT SHOULD BE THE ULTIMATE GOAL. A HIGH GPA AND A GOOD ACT SCORE WILL MAKE THE DIFFERENCE WHEN CHOOSING A COLLEGE AND PURSUING A DEGREE. THERE CAN BE A GREAT BALANCE BETWEEN ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT AND ACTIVITIES, BUT A STUDENT HAS TO HAVE A PLAN AND THE DEDICATION TO SUCCEED.

A MESSAGE FROM THE KANSAS STATE HIGH SCHOOL ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATION AND THE STUDENT ADVISORY TEAM.

OFFICIALS ARE VERY IMPORTANT TO THE GAME. WE CAN’T THANK THEM ENOUGH FOR TAKING TIME OUT OF THEIR SCHEDULE TO OFFICATE.

A MESSAGE FROM THE KANSAS STATE HIGH SCHOOL ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATION AND THE STUDENT ADVISORY TEAM.

For Use Through November 26, 2016
FOR MANY STUDENTS, HIGH SCHOOL CLASSES CAN SEEM TO BE A WASTE OF TIME. TOO MANY TIMES, ZACH SHIMA, A SENIOR AT TOPEKA WEST HIGH SCHOOL, SEES KIDS LOSE INTEREST IN CLASSES THEY ONCE THOUGHT TO BE FUN. HIGH SCHOOLS SHOULD PROVIDE AS MANY OPPORTUNITIES AS POSSIBLE FOR STUDENTS TO TAKE SPECIALIZED COURSES TAILORED TO THEIR INTERESTS. TOO OFTEN IN GENERAL CLASSES, THE COURSE MATERIAL IS HAMMERED INTO THE HEADS OF RELUCTANT TEENAGERS INSTEAD OF FOCUSING ON HOW STUDENTS CAN USE THE HABITS RETAINED FROM THOSE CLASSES IN THEIR CAREERS. IF A STUDENT HAS A PASSION FOR A SUBJECT OR AN IDEA, THEY WILL FIND A WAY TO LEARN MORE ABOUT IT.

A MESSAGE FROM THE KANSAS STATE HIGH SCHOOL ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATION AND THE STUDENT ADVISORY TEAM.

For Use Through November 26, 2016
COLSON REAMES, A RECENT GRADUATE FROM BELOIT HIGH SCHOOL, SAYS THAT LEADERSHIP IS A QUALITY MANY PEOPLE DON’T HAVE. SPORTS HELP STUDENTS BECOME GREAT LEADERS ON AND OFF THE FIELD. WHEN YOU BECOME A SENIOR, COACHES WILL DEMAND MORE OUT OF YOU. SENIORS ARE HELD MORE ACCOUNTABLE THAN OTHER CLASSES. THEY ARE THE PRIMARY LEADERS FOR THAT YEAR. IF YOU HAVE GOOD LEADERSHIP, YOUR TEAM WILL DO WELL IN WHATEVER SPORT OR ACTIVITY YOU ARE IN.
