Laruen -- you need to finish your English assignment or you won't get into any college.
It's not enough to join a bunch of clubs. What's important is the leadership and service you exhibit in the clubs you do join.
It's not a assignment it's a contest that my school is doing and I'm doing this for EXTRA CREDIT the deadline is dec 1st.
btw at my school we have builder clubs and roots and shoots. Roots and Shoots is a club when you help the WORLD (no joke), I'm doing it next year.
Also National Honor Socety do COMMUNITY SERVICE
I'm doing commesity service every year. I'm going to do it also outside of school (sometimes around high school). Plus in church they do some community service.
I'm joining some of those clubs sometimes in high school about 1 or 2 years NOT 4 YEARS. Multicural club do commenity serivce TOO.
It's just about commuitnity service all the time there is also adcamdamcis (srry i miss spell that)

Every student that reads 5 books and completes the book log, will be invited to a fun party in December. He will receive a prize and his name will be recognized on the loud speaker.
Don't "spread yourself too thin" with clubs, meaning that you need to leave sufficient time to do the required homework for all your classes.
