Myers Elementary is not only committed to the academic growth of its students, but the social and relational growth as well. Joining a club gives students a comfortable place to meet others with similar interests. This often forms the basis for lifelong friendships.Children who participate in a variety of activities are introduced to new skills and given a chance to develop them. As children realize they "can do", their self-confidence grows.In addition to self-confidence, students learn teamwork, develop independence, learn about leadership and responsibility, civic mindedness and experience the joy of making a difference. Some students join a club just for the fun of it.
