The three most popular extracurricular activities would most likely fall into the sports category, which in that case would mean football, basketball, and my personal favorite, volleyball; there are other sports, yet they aren't given as much attention as they should be.Those three sports are undeniably and without a doubt the most appreciated, commended, and recognized activities within the school itself, all other activities usually take second place in recognition or are simply dismissed whenever discussed or brought up. For anyone who was a first time student at Olathe North, I would definitely recommend Student Council, or S.T.U.C.O, Volleyball, Basketball, and the Class Student Leadership, which in my case would be Junior Leadership. They are a great way of developing close bonds with friends and engaging in all that our school has to offer. Joining both S.T.U.C.O and Class Leadership were one of the best decisions I've ever made in my entire high school career, I've not only been able to make new friends and debate/compromise their thoughts and ideas, but I've also been subject to difficult problematic situations that required delicate time and effort in fixing and handling. They have both opened my eyes to possibilities that I didn't exactly think was entirely possible and the memories I've made from setting up football games to organizing Prom and Homecoming have been amazing and I will cherish them for as long as possible. Volleyball and Basketball will always have a special place in my heart and have been a personal favorite of mine, from the 5:00 AM practices to the 10 minute stair laps that had my thighs burning and my lungs on fire to enduring yells from your coach when you lose games to after practice cool down runs around your neighborhood; every minute is a roller coaster full of adrenaline, hard work, excitement, and it all pays off when you finally win a tournament or game at the very end of the never ending season.
