Other extracurriculars people do

Post by kjhsscioly » April 8th, 2011, 2:59 pm

It is interesting to hear what people do other than SO. I know a lot of us play music and do other sciency stuff, but what do most olympians spend the rest of their time on?

In the spring, my life is made up almost entirely of SO, band (solo/ensemble- tomorrow), and forensics. In the fall, it's mostly debate and marching band.

I run track for my school and then next year I'll hopefully make it into office or leadership. :roll:
I go to school at Cerro Villa MS. A neighboring school of El Rancho Charter, a once dominating science olympiad team. Rebecca Black goes to El Rancho. It's Friday everyday there. :D

Violin + orchestra, homework, SO, and a few other competitions that are pretty much over right now. I'm going to do a lot more next year when I get into high school.

I'm in FBLA, Key Club, and scholastic scrimmage. I'll hopefully get into NHS for next year, and I might join our environmental club. In middle school I was on Girls On the Run, cross country, and math club(math counts and PAML in one club). I just quit chorus last year too. :o

At all? that is surprising to me. Most people on SO do some other science/math activity, like WYSE, JETS, Scho bowl, Science bowl, etc.

Well, I would have done Quiz Bowl, but the school cut it.

I wish our school had quiz bowl. I'd like to think I'd be quite good at it. It's a shame we don't have a team.
