Student, East Stroudsburg Senior High School North, Class of 2016,
The three most popular extracurricular activities at East Stroudsburg North are the marching band, drama club, and varsity sports teams. These activities are dominant; However the extracurricular that I would recommend are Anime Club,Future Business Leaders of America, and African Culture Club. Students could get a vast knowledge from these clubs.Anime Club would open up doors to students, in that it would be fun as well as expose the students to a different culture. Students have heard and know at least one amine, but anime club could expose them to more of the culture and the long hard process that it takes to make the shows that they enjoy. FBLA would teach students how businesses and leadership roles work. It would give them the skills they need to be the future of America, as well as give them Social interactions with teammates on a intellectual level. African Culture club I feel would be the most impacting activity, because east stroudsburg contains a large number of African American students who have no real idea of thier true culture. They identify themselves by what they watch on tv or influences on the street. They feel they have to act a certain way to identify themselves as the stereotype black person, if there was an African culture club then the students could learn where they came from and what thier true roots are. I feel not only the African students would benefit but all the different ethnic sudden hrs could lean that there is more to black students then what tv and they streets brainwash them to otherwise see. Honestly, I know that East Stroudsburg High school North could benefit if they add these extracurricular activities along side the sports, music, and drama clubs.
