Increasing Student Involvement at North is a Priority

Andrew Keech

There are many things a kid could get involved in here at North. We have a fantastic NJROTC program, a great yearbook staff, and our sports teams are bringing people together every new season.

It’s only high school, right? Kids are only going to be here for four years of their lives. Why waste this experience? Wouldn’t you want to get the most out of the short amount of time you have?

There are many different activities, clubs, teams, and charities that you could participate in here at North. You could play football, join newspaper, attend Club 121, or just go to basketball games.

“You only have high school once,” junior Taylor Edwards said. “You don’t want to have any regrets.”

Do you really want to remember high school as the boring jail cell you went to from 7:40 a.m. to 2:40 p.m.? It does not have to be that way.

Not only does being involved help you have more fun but it can also give you new friends and also open up more opportunities for your life after high school.

“My favorite part of wrestling is all the friends I’ve made,” junior Nick Drummond said. “We all sit in the same place together at lunch every day. Wrestling has really brought us together as friends.”

It’s easy to get involved in more activities at North. Read announcements or just simply talk to your peers or teachers.

“High school isn’t meant to be just a boring place for drama,” Edwards said. “If you get involved you can have a lot of fun.”
