Brighten the Winter
Does school feel blah these days? Maybe your sport season came to an end, or your after-school activity stopped because of cold weather. Or, perhaps you haven’t found a club or extracurricular activity you really love yet. It is not too late to get involved! Let the following ideas energize your next four months:
Volunteer around the school. Does your favorite teacher have a class of younger students? Perhaps one of those students needs a tutor after school. Does the community garden need attention before spring planting? Grab a few friends and prep the area next weekend.
Ask your counselor for a suggestion of a club to join or start a new one this month. Shy about performing in the school musical? Work on the crew so you are a part of the show’s success. Do you play an instrument and your friend likes to sing? Start a duet to play around town or at a local hospital for the patients.
Try something completely new. You joined an exchange program because you are brave and adventurous and curious. New sport? New friends? New opportunity for fun? Go for it!
