Dear Johnny,

School has just started back up, and the Club Fair is this Friday. I want to be more involved with the JC Community and join clubs, but I’m not sure how to choose which clubs. Also, I don’t want to be overwhelmed with clubs, AP classes, and ACT studying. How do I balance clubs with my already crazy schedule?

Thanks, 

Club Crazy Child

 

Dear Club Crazy Child,

Welcome back to a new school year! A new school year means a new routine. The point of Club Fair is to recruit potential members of a club. That does not mean you sell your soul to that club if you write your name down on the sign-up sheets. With that being said, there is no need to stress out about Club Fair. Just roam around to the different classrooms and listen what goes on within the club. If it seems interesting to you, put your name down on the list so the club can contact you with more information. Since it is only the first full week of school, you probably don’t have a set routine yet (how long is it going to take to do your homework, when does practice end, should I eat now or later, etc). The first few club meetings are usually informative, but are about the same length as a regular club meeting. This will help give you a feel for whether you will have the time to be a part of the club or not. If you do have time, great! Continue to be a member of the club. If not, just explain to the sponsor or student leader that you do not have the time to participate. Don’t stress out about it. And don’t feel like you have to be involved with EVERY club. Watch your grades closely too–you don’t want them to drop! 

Best of luck,

Johnny the Jet
