Get Involved in Extracurricular Activities

Don't know which extracurricular activities to join this school year? Kidzworld checks out everything from arts and science clubs to drama and intramurals!

Photography Club

If you're snap-happy and you know it, then check out the photography club. Express yourself in a visual way by getting up close and personal with the camera, mastering the art of photography, using the darkroom, and developing your own black and white or color photos for school publications like the yearbook and student newspaper.

Sports and Intramurals

Playing sports is one of the best extracurricular activities because it gets you out of your desk. Whether you want to play at a competitive level or just for fun, you'll find a wide range of sports to participate in, like football, track and field, badminton, water polo, basketball, or even snowboarding.

Drama Club

Instead of trying to get people's attention in the hallways, do it from the stage! The drama club is the perfect place for aspiring actors and actresses to hone their acting skills and get discovered (you never know when a director will drop by to watch your performance and decide to cast you in his next movie). If acting, singing and dancing aren't your thing, there are plenty of behind-the-scenes opportunities to get involved in, like directing, building sets, making costumes, helping the stage crew, and fundraising.

Art Clubs

Art clubs are a creative haven for students who want to explore their artistic side. Check out the sewing club if you have fashion designing dreams, join painting if you want to reveal your inner Warhol, or get involved with sculpture and pottery if you like getting your hands dirty.

Science Clubs

Science clubs aren't just for mad scientists! They're for anyone who's interested in participating in science experiments, spreading the word about recycling, or keeping the environment clean. Take part in various activities both in and out of the classroom - it could be a nature hike one day, a stargazing event the next day, and a trip to the science museum another day!

Chess Club

If you're always two steps ahead of everyone else, then chess is your game! Both new and experienced players will have opportunities to play daily games and even compete in matches against other schools.

Write an anonymous note. And tell him to put it somewhere that only you can get it back to see what he says.

hey, i got a question, how would you get over a major mess-up, then try to act attractive, so you would still have a chance at maybe making a relationship with your crush.

Ok, so how would you tell a crush you like them without them knowing it's you?

I've been there when I was still in school. I don't personally have many friends now that I'm graduated, but that's more because the people here aren't worth being friends with. Off topic, my bad- Anyways, just try being a nice person. Sit with the other kid that's alone during lunch, find someone who needs someone to talk too, be open. I realize this can be difficult to do if you're shy, believe me, I've been there as well. Just remember that you need to stay yourself. I've lost friends because they turned out to be someone totally different than how they made themselves out to be. It's not worth it to pretend you're someone else. If it doesn't happen naturally after a little while, then you just have to keep in mind that it's your turn to put yourself out there. Remember that, "hey, I put myself out there and I made a friend, that's pretty cool." But, also remember that, "hey, I put myself out there and I didn't make a friend, that's pretty okay too." If you put yourself out there and someone doesn't accept it, then that's okay. It just means they weren't meant to be your friend and someone else will come along much better for you.
