It is divided into a 25 minute “A” lunch, and a 25 minute “B” lunch. During this time students may eat, study, work out, receive tutoring, or visit the media center.

Getting good grades and challenging yourself should be your number one priority, but it is also important to spend time getting involved in something other than academics. Extra Curricular Activities @ Sanderson High
Activities Support the Academic Mission of Schools The following excerpts are taken from “The Case for High School Activities” published by the National Federation of State High School Associations. Activities are not a diversion, but rather an extension of a good educational program. Students who participate in activity programs tend to have higher grade- point averages, better attendance records, lower dropout rates and fewer discipline problems than students generally. Through participation in activity programs, students learn teamwork, sportsmanship, winning and losing, the rewards of hard work, self- discipline, build self-confidence, and develop skills to handle competitive situations. These are qualities the public expects schools to produce in students so they become responsible adults and productive citizens.
