Student, Arkansas Baptist School System, Class of 2016,
There are very many extracurricular activities at Arkansas Baptist. I have been involved in Cheerleading and I am the Captain of our cheer squad this year and I believe it is certainly one of the more interesting and athletic involvements. Also, we are given the privilege to be ambassadors for our school with different athletic and school events which is a great honor. The second activity is our Band Program. They work very hard to be excellent in all they do. They win numerous awards each year during marching season and are very talented. The third activity is our Missions Week. During this week all students are encouraged to get out in the community and work with different mission endeavors to help Little Rock and surrounding communities. We have students that volunteer with anything from helping elderly people with upkeep around their homes to different mission organizations. I have had the honor to work with the Union Rescue Mission Dorcas House, which is a home for battered and abused women and children. Also, the Arkansas Rice Depot which gives out both perishable and non-perishable food to needy families in our metropolitan area. These are the three best extracurricular activities which our school offers.
