Union encourages students at each grade level to participate in organized activities whether they are school-sponsored such as Student Council or an organization like Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts. Union believes students who participate in such activities lead more well-rounded lives and develop leadership and social skills that they can rely as they mature. See also Youth Sports Organizations
On the elementary level, students have many options from joining a chess club to their school choir. Some schools have academic teams, jump rope teams and even a runners’ club. In fact, several elementary schools involve their student body in running as they prepare for and participate in the annual Tulsa Run. It’s a lot of fun for students.
Union also welcomes the opportunity for students to participate in non-school sponsored organizations or events. These activities may include Boy Scout, Girl Scouts, church activities, Little League and more. Parents and students should check with their teachers or principals to learn what activities are open to students.
On the secondary level, students have access to even more school-sponsored activities. Union encourages all of its students to join a student club, athletics, spirit, drama, leadership, volunteering – well, it’s just the tip of the iceberg.
