Getting Involved In School

Quote: “ Embrace your school pride with your peers you only have four years”

Question: How do I get Involved with school activities?

Fact: Getting involved in school helps keep you motivated

No matter what grade you are in it is always important to get involved with your school. Getting involved helps you when applying for college, contributing to your school, and making new friends. You don’t want to wait until your senior year to get involved with school. Colleges want to see you can make a commitment and be with a club or activity for most of your high school career. Also you might end up enjoying a sport, club, or activity wishing you would have joined earlier. You want to leave high school with no regrets and enjoying all of what school has to offer. Whether it’s dances, games, or activities you can find something your school offers that interests you.

Take a risk and try out for the sports team you always wanted to do or audition for the school play. You do not always have to be going to school games to be involved with your school. The amount of clubs a school has is bound to have something that suits you. So don’t worry about having to be involved in something that doesn’t interest you, there is always a club for everyone.

Trying new things can surprise you, you might end up liking something you did not expect to like. It is always important to give things a chance. You never know the reality of something unless you try it yourself. So go to the football games, attend the dances, join the new club. The worst thing that can happen is you not liking it, but you will never know unless you give it a chance. You don’t want to join something your senior year and regret not joining earlier. It’s important to try as much as you can as a freshman to get to know your likes and whether you want to be involved with that club or sport all four of your high school years. 

Being involved in high school makes school a lot more fun. You feel apart of your school and you get to really enjoy being a teenager. Before you know it you're off to college and you can not go back to your high school days. This is why it is important to take a part as much as you can in high school. You need to live your high school years to the fullest.
