Archery at the Middle School
During the month of December, SCC Middle School 5th graders enjoyed learning archery through NASP, the National Archery in the Schools Program. The mission statement for NASP states this program "promotes international-style target archery as part of the in-school curriculum to improve educational performance and participation in the shooting sports among students in grades 4-12." The archery unit provides instruction in the areas of safety strategies, skills, and archery techniques needed to participate in archery as a lifetime activity. The high school physical education classes also have completed the NASP program. The equipment is currently on loan to SCC from the Wisconsin DNR. Fundraising activities are currently under way to assist SCC to purchase their own equipment. Keep an eye out for donation opportunities to support the fundraising efforts by the SCC NASP Archery Club.
