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.

Dear Dish-It In The Forums

I don't have ADHD, but I know plenty about it. One of my friends has ADHD and Tourette's, and the teachers were always turds about it. Anyway, i think that a good way to deal with ADHD acting up is either changing medication or trying to eat foods or drinks with caffeine. I'm not sure if it works for you, but a lot of people with ADHD have seen significant improvements after putting caffeine in their systems. If your friends are acting like turds, you need better friends. I hope my advice helps.

Well, if they are your BFFs, they shouldn't be teasing you to make you feel bad. Me, and my BFFs tease each other all the time playfully, but I understand that this is different, and if it's making you feel bad it isn't playful at all.   Maybe your eldest friend is having some trouble with family issues, bad grades, body changes, etc. It's okay to be angry, so maybe you should leave her space for a few days, and see if it turns better. If it isn't, then try to first make her calm down. Then, make her talk to you about why she is so angry and ask if you can try to help. If nothing turns out better, tell her that you feel uncomfortable, and you want her to talk to you.  For your 3rd eldest friend, support her as much as possible, and stand up for her in this terrible situation. If you are all BFFs, then you should all be very close and comfortable around each other, and the fight shouldn't last long. If not, they are not your real friends, and you have to go on without them. I have tons of advice on how to make new friends, so just ask me if you want to know. Your 2nd eldest friend seems to be the main problem.  First of all, tell her to stop, and say how you don't like her bullying you. You must say what she is doing wrong, and how it makes you feel. If she doesn't care, tell her you're serious, and you hate what she is doing to you. If it continues, ignore what trash she is saying, and just simply walk away. Focus on other things that will help make you feel better. Remember, all she is is a person, and it's up to you to act appropriately.  Stay positive, and calm. Focus on other things, and if she continues, tell her that you can all be friends and you miss her. Go get another friend to stand up with you, and tell her that you will report to an adult if she won't stop. She may be your friend, but she deserves it. I told on my BFF when she was mean, so it's all okay now.  If all else fails, get a trusted adult, and hang out with nicer friends. Your other friends will learn from their mistakes. If not, warn them, and give them a sincere kindness note of how you miss being friends. Then, also give one to the bully.

Yeah, @CyclonicBass the best option really is to find a girl with a quirky personality. Become friends with her. Possibly, over time, she'll grow close to you and accept a request to be with you. Hope it goes well!
