Student Life & Activities | La Vida y Las Actividades de los Estudiantes
At Annunciation, we believe that there is more to education than just classroom learning; we hope to form well-rounded young people with a zeal for learning and a love for others. Children need opportunities for profound experiences beyond the classroom that push them to their limits, uncover their passions, allow them to make a difference, and challenge their perspectives of our world. There are many clubs, sports, outdoor excursions, and volunteer opportunities in which students of all ages at Annunciation can participate to grow their brains and their hearts, and better their community. A few of the non-sport opportunities are described below:
Enrichment Electives | “Enrichment Electives” give our middle school students opportunities to engage with a wide range of activities outside the classroom. Partnering with organizations such as 4-H, the First Tee Golf of Denver, YouthBiz, and Junior Achievement, we offer hour-long courses once a week during school hours that range from photography to survival cooking to financial literacy. Often, students choose to extend their involvement with EE activities to after school hours, forming strong relationships with these community organizations. Since students choose new electives every trimester, they sample a variety of activities they typically would never get to try.
