On Extracurriculars: My child participated in the Riptide Dance Team and Freshman Cheerleading team in her 9th grade year. This was very hard for her. She had to attend practices almost everyday and she did not come home until late night. All of her teachers and coaches were understanding when it came down to school work and alternating practices since both extra curricular activities were very active and busy at the same time of the year.
