Some students want to crack the code of being a part of their school, but think it is too difficult. Many do not realize it is easier than they think.  

Etowah offers many different clubs, so students can find one that fits their interests and hobbies. By joining a group, they will be able to make new friends who may have the same or similar passions. 

“There’s not that many people in Anime Club, but I usually talk to the president of the club and a few other people,” Sarah Morgan, sophomore, said. 

If students love to act or put on a show, they can take drama as an elective. Drama enthusiasts do not have to be enrolled in the class but can be a part of the club and audition for plays and competitions.  

“I joined One Act as a sophomore as the assistant stage manager, and I instantly made tons of great friends, especially thanks to the friendly upperclassmen,” Adam Parboo, senior, said 

Another way people can be included in their school is by joining a team. Whether it is a sports team or an academic team, students are sure to find something they can enjoy. They can join the team during their off season, which is normally when they start to practice. When game time approaches, they will be prepared to compete. The school loves to celebrate team accomplishments over the intercom and many times even highlight specific players. Sports are a good way for students to get their name out there and be involved.  

“Ever since I’ve been on Etowah’s soccer team, I have been on the intercom a few times, and people will come up to me saying ‘good job.’ It feels good to know that people know my name from the sport I like to do,” Edwin Flores, freshman, said. 

If students wants to be in a class that requires every day commitment, they can join yearbook or newspaper. By being in a class, many will be able to connect with others in their school and strengthen their communication skills. 

“I love being a part of yearbook. It has helped me get the pictures I worked hard on out there, and it helped me become a part of the school,” Marlie Garrett, freshman, said. 

For those who cannot fit journalism in their schedules, there is a newspaper club, as well. By joining a club or team, students can make friends and new memories in the process.
