As the new school year is progressing, whether you are an incoming freshman or have been here at Minnetonka High School for some time, you might be looking for “stuff” to do. Luckily, there are many different classes, extracurriculars, and other opportunities that you could get involved in. Here are the voices of two students, and maybe their tips and involvement can serve as inspiration for those of you looking to get involved.

My favorite classes so far are Minnetonka Research, as well as AP Bio. I’m involved in chamber music club, and symphony orchestra. In my spare time, I volunteer at Richardson Nature Center, helping with raptor care, tours, and helping others discover nature at Richardson.

What advice would you give to those looking to get more involved?

I would definitely recommend going to the activities fair, as well as the Minnetonka Schools website that has the list of all the activities at the high school. Something else you could do is join the Groupme of all the clubs you are a little bit interested in, and even if you don’t have time, you still have the information. Maybe if you don’t know what clubs to join, look at the classes you like the most and choose the correlating club.

I am in DECA, K-pop dance club, Not So Dead Latin Club, theatre, Girls United, I swim and weight lift off season. I play piano and violin, and I’m in an orchestra. 

What advice would you give to those looking to get more involved?

Don’t be scared of being busy, I remember at the beginning of my freshman year I was overwhelmed at the thought of not having free time, but once you realize that what you’re doing is what you love to do it’s not so bad anymore. However, if you know you have a club going on at one time, and you want to do another at the same time, don’t overbook yourself, and know you can be committed to at least one. 

Give a brief description of your favorite club.

I definitely really enjoy the Not So Dead Latin Club, even though there are not a lot of members. We got these Latin books, and we study history and also the language.
