Extracurricular Activities

Extracurricular activities are an important component of Desert Sky Middle School.  Students benefit in many ways.  Students who participate in extracurricular school activities are better connected to school, form more positive peer relationships, demonstrate greater self-esteem, and usually do better academically.

Please see the attached document for a list of clubs and activities.
