Apollo Activities Office is open 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Approximately 30 percent of our students are involved in something here at Apollo. Quite often when school activities are mentioned, most people think of athletics; simply because they are the most visible. We offer 30 different athletic endeavors and have 32 other activities such as fine arts, academic teams, drama/theater clubs, Speech, Knowledge Bowl plus many more. To top that we also have over nine student interest clubs such as French Club, Art Club and Book Club to name a few. We believe we have 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. Apollo 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. "We are really making a difference in their lives, and yes, we want to win titles, but we are in it for growth, change and development. If you want your kids to be part of great programs I believe we can do that!"
Go Apollo Eagles!
