I would say that the 3 most popular extracurricular activities at school are: Choir, Foods and Nutrition, and Power Volleyball.
I would recommend taking any instrumental classes. When I first entered CPHS as a Freshman, I didn't expect to be in choir. I actually hated choir due to horrible experiences in Elementary school. However, my Mom highly encouraged and pushed me to take the class for at least a year, challenging me to meet new people and learning what choir was truly about. On the other hand, if my choir teacher wasn't awesome, I probably wouldn't have enjoyed much of choir. The instrumental teachers at CPHS are truly talented, motivational, and kind people. As a student who takes rigorous classes, music has taught me to balance my academic life. Going home to study every night truly wears you down, but every time I come back to school for Choir, it gives me a sense of rest and peace. Over the 4 years of choir, I've enjoyed the many people I've met. The students in my choir are truly brilliant and talented students. Statistically, it's even proven that students who take music classes are smarter. This I would say, is due to the amount of work we put in to balance our academic schedule alongside our extracurricular activities. Once again, I personally encourage students to be involved in music. Music is a great blessing in life and it's such a great opportunity to have in high school.
