#YAWritersAAT 10/21/12 - School Functions and Extracurriculars

Hey Misfiteers! Leigh Ann here.

In this week's YA Writers Ask a Teen chat, we were talking school events and extracurriculars. Unsurprisingly, most of the answers about dances, sports games, and pep rallies varied from teen to teen so scroll through to find some great examples of "normal" to give your own writing about this stuff authenticity.

This chat was also great if you're looking for a school function or event to serve as a location for that angsty confrontation or romantic under-the-bleachers (ahem) situation. Hope it helps!

Lastly, we'd LOVE some input. Did this chat help inform your writing? What topics would you like to see in the future?

RT @mobrienbooks: Like, seriously, GO. We have a billion teens and like no adults. COME ASK US THINGS. #YAWritersAATAnn LeBlanc
Well, I'll start! Are school sponsored events ever cool, or just kind of lame? You can talk about games, dances, whatever. #YAWritersAATLeigh Ann Kopans
@LeighAnnKopans I have no idea. :\ Hopefully people show up soon. #YAWritersAATMark O'Brien
RT @Rockets2Writing: Outside of sports what are some of the more popular extracurricular activities? #YAWritersAATLeigh Ann Kopans
@Rockets2Writing Drama was a big thing in our school. Also Aspira, which is a volunteer organization. #YAWritersAATJulie
#YAWritersAAT Are there actually organizations that are looked down on? Does anyone care so much what other people enjoy?Amanda Clay
@Rockets2Writing Clubs that take trips :) Close Up (government), fishing, outdoor adventure, etc. #YAWritersAATJust Another Dreamer
@Rockets2Writing Definitely the Honors Societies, stuff like DECA, Science Olympiad, drama stuff, etc. #YAWritersAATOlivia
@LeighAnnKopans Kind of varied. Dances were mostly important for after parties. Games were only important in my senior year #YAWritersAATJulie
@LeighAnnKopans because our football team started doing REALLY well. #YAWritersAATJulie
Hello, hello! I'm AnQi: Thirteen, and good at writing never to be finished novels. I also excel at devouring mint ice cream. #YAWritersAATJadaAndAnQi
RT @EncoreUnReveur: @Rockets2Writing Clubs that take trips :) Close Up (government), fishing, outdoor adventure, etc. #YAWritersAATGovernment Robot
@LeighAnnKopans It always depends with dances on who's going, but they're usually cool. Other stuff? Not usually... #YAWritersAATJohn Hansen
Everyone goes to dances. And a lot of people go to sports games (particularly football). Not a lot of people are in clubs. #YAWritersAATMark O'Brien
Ohhhh and speaking of volunteer stufff ,how many people do that for college apps, and how much do they have to do? #YAWritersAATLeigh Ann Kopans
@daisyviolet Nothing I can think of? #YAWritersAATJulie
@LeighAnnKopans Dances=fun when there're good DJs, but only at schools where they aren't so strict about um, how you dance...#YAWritersAATJust Another Dreamer
@EncoreUnReveur Yeah. Ski Club was like the most popular thing in college because of the trips LOL #YAWritersAAT @Rockets2WritingLeigh Ann Kopans
@LeighAnnKopans Dances are kind of lame. Football games are fun but most people only go to homecoming. #YAWritersAATOlivia
@JulieHeartBooks I was a back stage kid growing up glad to see drama is still popular :) #YAWritersAATJamie K.
@LeighAnnKopans Uh... my school has a community service requirement. #YAWritersAATJohn Hansen
@EncoreUnReveur How do you know? Do you crash other schools' dances? ;) (I did a couple times in HS.) #YAWritersAATLeigh Ann Kopans
@LeighAnnKopans I only did volunteer work for my honor societies and they helped a bit on college apps. #YAWritersAATJulie
@LeighAnnKopans Most do it for college apps. I have around 200 hrs with mission trips & playing piano at hospitals and stuff #YAWritersAATJust Another Dreamer
@LeighAnnKopans I volunteer a lot, but mostly because I love it. For honors societies, generally about 10 hours/semester. #YAWritersAATOlivia
@OliviasOpinions What makes the dances lame? The chaperoning, like @EncoreUnReveur says? #YAWritersAATLeigh Ann Kopans
Is there still a lot of drama surrounding dates for school dances? I always remembered lots of hookups and breakups at dances #YAWritersAATJamie K.
@LeighAnnKopans So I did the necessary for my honor societies, but the applications didn't require them. #YAWritersAATJulie
@LeighAnnKopans A few times...XD. And I have friends at schools where they don't allow any touching. So. #YAWritersAATJust Another Dreamer
@ABoredAuthor Okay, so is there a coveted community service assignment? How do they match people? #YAWritersAATLeigh Ann Kopans
@Rockets2Writing Senior prom was an issue because they were SO strict about driving and cars. Otherwise, not really. #YAWritersAATJulie
@daisyviolet People do what they think will get them the most friends. Nothing is particularly looked down on at my school. #YAWritersAATJadaAndAnQi
@ABoredAuthor Like, I know @OliviasOpinions does her do-gooding at the hospital. Which do people want dibs on at your school.? #YAWritersAATLeigh Ann Kopans
@LeighAnnKopans @EncoreUnReveur Pretty much. Plus the whole 'dirty' thing she was talking about is a turn off for me. #YAWritersAATOlivia
@Rockets2Writing Definitely. There's always a ton of tears. #YAWritersAATJadaAndAnQi
@JulieHeartBooks Ohhhh because of drinking? Did they take keys and stuff? #YAWritersAAT @Rockets2WritingLeigh Ann Kopans
@Rockets2Writing YES. Who's going with who, who ISN'T going because s/he doesn't have a date, who's crying in the bathroom... #YAWritersAATMark O'Brien
@LeighAnnKopans While our ASB goes all out on our dances, not a lot of people come. And when they do, it's kind of boring. #YAWritersAATLost_in_Translation
@LeighAnnKopans @rockets2writing No, our prom was the night before graduation to curb drinking. I think it was more security. #YAWritersAATJulie
@JadaAndAnQi @Rockets2Writing Oh, God. I'd just like to go to ONE dance during which no one runs out in tears. #YAWritersAATJust Another Dreamer
@LeighAnnKopans I don't think one in particular. Helping disabled kids is popular. #YAwritersAATJohn Hansen
@mobrienbooks I remember a ton of dances like that. Senior Prom = soap opera, not one left with who they came with! #YAWritersAATJamie K.
@EncoreUnReveur Hahaha I feel like you say this every other week. #YAWritersAAT @JadaAndAnQi @Rockets2WritingLeigh Ann Kopans
@Rockets2Writing Oh, yes. So much yes. People ask out and break up right before dances, guys have to pay, same-dress drama... #YAWritersAATLost_in_Translation
@JulieHeartBooks Okay, THAT's an idea. How did it go over with the students ? #YAWritersAAT @Rockets2WritingLeigh Ann Kopans
@CinderScoria glad to see some things never change ;) #YAWritersAATJamie K.
@Rockets2Writing Not to mention what happens when you show up alone. I did that last year. Didn't expect the stares. #YAWritersAATLost_in_Translation
@LeighAnnKopans @JadaAndAnQi @Rockets2Writing True. Seriously, though. Homecoming was two weeks ago. JUST ONE DANCE. #YAWritersAATJust Another Dreamer
@LeighAnnKopans It's what we knew, so we accepted it. A lot of people still went clubbing/got drunk anyway. @Rockets2Writing #YAWritersAATJulie
@ABoredAuthor @LeighAnnKopans Serving food at the homeless shelter always fills up fast. #YAWritersAATJadaAndAnQi
@CinderScoria Aww! I went to most dances alone but usually went with a group of friends those were usually the most fun. #YAWritersAATJamie K.
@JulieHeartBooks @LeighAnnKopans @Rockets2Writing This is weird to me. Nobody really gets drunk at our school dances. #YAWritersAATLost_in_Translation
@JadaAndAnQi @ABoredAuthor @LeighAnnKopans I know most people around here volunteer through their churches... #YAWritersAATJust Another Dreamer
@CinderScoria @leighannkopans @rockets2writing Not at the dance, but after. A lot of people leave early to start early. #YAWritersAATJulie
@CinderScoria @JulieHeartBooks @LeighAnnKopans @Rockets2Writing A LOT of people get drunk AFTER dances at my school. #YAWritersAATJust Another Dreamer
What about games? What sport is big at your school? Do people have a lot of school spirit, and how do they show it? #YAWritersAATLeigh Ann Kopans
...What schools do you guys go to that there's so much drama at dances? Dang. Maybe I missed something. #YAWritersAATJulie
@dkmwriter @Rockets2Writing SO AWKWARD. Ugh, it's like, "She doesn't have a date! GASP!" #YAWritersAATLost_in_Translation
@EncoreUnReveur @cinderscoria @julieheartbooks @leighannkopans @rockets2writing Yup. We get breathalyzed before the dance #YAWritersAATMark O'Brien
@LeighAnnKopans I live in a teensy town, so EVERYONE shows up for games. #YAWritersAATJust Another Dreamer
@LeighAnnKopans Football is always huge even though we're not all that good. REALLY good at track, but nobody cares. #YAWritersAATJulie
@EncoreUnReveur @JulieHeartBooks @LeighAnnKopans @Rockets2Writing Lol wow. I'm not very observant. :P It never occured to me. #YAWritersAATLost_in_Translation
@JulieHeartBooks @CinderScoria @LeighAnnKopans @Rockets2Writing Aren't there usually after parties and stuff like that? #YAWritersAATJadaAndAnQi
@LeighAnnKopans Basically everyone shows up for the football games. re: school spirit: not really, 'cause we lose a lot. xD #YAWritersAATMark O'Brien
@mobrienbooks @EncoreUnReveur @JulieHeartBooks @LeighAnnKopans @Rockets2Writing Seriously?! We're trusted more than that. :P #YAWritersAATLost_in_Translation
@LeighAnnKopans @encoreunreveur @cinderscoria @rockets2writing We're close to NYC, so clubbing was easy. Parents didn't care. #YAWritersAATJulie
@JulieHeartBooks Dances are the CENTER of drama. But mostly because of the hooking-up that ensues afterwards. #YAWritersAATJohn Hansen
@LeighAnnKopans Football, obviously. At my school, it's mostly big because it's a huge social event. #YAWritersAATJadaAndAnQi
@ABoredAuthor Yeah, even that's not a big deal. Maybe in some specific groups they have inner problems, but otherwise? Meh. #YAWritersAATJulie
@LeighAnnKopans FOOTBALL. They suck this year though. We're really good at sports though. Wrestling and football. #YAWritersAATLost_in_Translation
@mobrienbooks @LeighAnnKopans THIS. But almost everyone does the dress up on the day of homecoming. #YAWritersAATJust Another Dreamer
@mobrienbooks @EncoreUnReveur @CinderScoria @JulieHeartBooks @LeighAnnKopans @Rockets2Writing That's crazy. #YAWritersAATOlivia
@LeighAnnKopans When introduced at a pep ass. last year, the whole team had this giant dance routine to showcase each player. #YAWritersAATLost_in_Translation
@LeighAnnKopans It was awkward and fangirl-worthy at the same time, lol. #YAWritersAATLost_in_Translation
@OliviasOpinions @encoreunreveur @cinderscoria @julieheartbooks @leighannkopans @rockets2writing Not really, though. *shrugs* #YAWritersAATMark O'Brien
True Fact: Only seniors and kids in marching band/football/cheerleading can go to pep rallies at my school. We have one a year #YAWritersAATJulie
Despite this, we had two football fields, a soccer field, three softball fields, and a track. #YAWritersAATJulie
@mobrienbooks @LeighAnnKopans It's not that unrealistic. Most people who show up to games are tipsy or flat out drunk. #YAWritersAATOlivia
@JulieHeartBooks ....WAT?! Our pep rallies are during school! #YAWritersAATJust Another Dreamer
@mobrienbooks @LeighAnnKopans Obviously that 'most people' doesn't involve me. #YAWritersAATOlivia
@EncoreUnReveur Ours are too. But only those select students can go. Seniors who choose not to can leave early. #YAWritersAATJulie
@JulieHeartBooks Dude, I'd be a nervous wreck. #parent #YAWritersAAT @EncoreUnReveur @CinderScoria @Rockets2WritingLeigh Ann Kopans
@EncoreUnReveur @JulieHeartBooks Mine too. They're pretty epic too. LOTS of screaming, everyone's invited. Almost 2,000 kids. #YAWritersAATLost_in_Translation
@JulieHeartBooks Wow. Do you go to a ginormous school? #YAWritersAATJust Another Dreamer
Yikes didn't realize drinking was such an extracurricular activity in HS centering around dances & sporting events/pep rallies #YAWritersAATJamie K.
. @mobrienbooks At my school, the cheerleaders were more awesome than the football players. People came to see them. #YAWritersAATLeigh Ann Kopans
@LeighAnnKopans A lot of them got hotels or camped or took a sunrise cruise. They kinda knew whereabouts. #YAWritersAAT #YAWritersAATJulie
@EncoreUnReveur Maybe? We had 600 in our graduating class. #YAWritersAATJulie
@LeighAnnKopans sounds like Bring it On ;) #YAWritersAATJamie K.
@LeighAnnKopans We have a male cheerleader and it's pretty much my life goal to give him a high-five. #YAWritersAATMark O'Brien
@Rockets2Writing Me either. I never even thought about it. I'm a good kid. :3 You do see a lot of smokers though. #YAWritersAATLost_in_Translation
@JulieHeartBooks That's true. The argument is at least they know where the kids are.#YAWritersAATLeigh Ann Kopans
@Rockets2Writing Yep. In my town, though, I think they ban alcohol at high school games. #YAWritersAATJadaAndAnQi
@Rockets2Writing Oh, gosh yes. My tennis team didn't go to state last year b/c half of varsity was busted for drinking. #YAWritersAATJust Another Dreamer
@LeighAnnKopans @mobrienbooks At my school, our dance team is cooler than our cheerleaders. Dunno why. #YAWritersAATLost_in_Translation
@LeighAnnKopans @mobrienbooks No one likes the cheerleaders at our school. Actually, they're usually booed off. #YAWritersAATJust Another Dreamer
Any school activities that are popular that are more clique-inducing? Who are the tightest-knit groups? theater? Band? #YAWritersAATLeigh Ann Kopans
@LeighAnnKopans A lot of these parents were also letting these kids leave for the beach for a week the next day. #YAWritersAATJulie
@LeighAnnKopans #YAWritersAAT Band was the biggest, probably because we had no shame when it came to practicing in hallways. :PKeith McAbee
@CinderScoria @Rockets2Writing A high school in my town has a whole sanctuary where they just smoke during class. It's sad. #YAWritersAATJadaAndAnQi
@LeighAnnKopans Mostly sports teams, I think, since you basically grow up with your teammates. #YAWritersAATJust Another Dreamer
@EncoreUnReveur @LeighAnnKopans @mobrienbooks our cheerleaders couldn't spell. Ex: D-E-F-E-N-C.... umm yea... #YAWritersAATJamie K.
@LeighAnnKopans Band for us. Our band won some HUGE competition last year. They're not snobby, just closed off. #YAWritersAATLost_in_Translation
RT @dkmwriter: @LeighAnnKopans #YAWritersAAT Band was the biggest, probably because we had no shame when it came to practicing in hallways. :PLeigh Ann Kopans
@LeighAnnKopans And our drumline ROCKS. A competitive team was formed last year. Swept every competition they entered. #YAWritersAATLost_in_Translation
@LeighAnnKopans Theater is pretty secluded, since those kids kind of have big personalities. Not that that's a bad thing! #YAWritersAATJadaAndAnQi
@Rockets2Writing @LeighAnnKopans @mobrienbooks Our cheerleaders are just kind of...not good. They eat pizza during practice. #YAWritersAATJust Another Dreamer
@LeighAnnKopans Marching band. Drama. Sports. #YAWritersAATJulie
EncoreUnReveur @Rockets2Writing @LeighAnnKopans @mobrienbooks haha that totally goes against the stereotype! #YAWritersAATJamie K.
@JadaAndAnQi @LeighAnnKopans In my school, theater kids are involved in everything. Choir, sports, talent shows... #YAWritersAATLost_in_Translation
All right, I've gotta get going. It was fun, though! See you guys next week! #YAWritersAATMark O'Brien
@LeighAnnKopans Mostly marching band and sports teams, from what I know. I'm cyber-schooled so my input is pretty useless. #YAWritersAATAnn LeBlanc
@LeighAnnKopans One more: Leadership. It's actually a class, but all the popular kids take it. I really don't know why. #YAWritersAATLost_in_Translation
@CinderScoria @LeighAnnKopans For us, it's the band kids that kind of ace everything. #YAWritersAATJadaAndAnQi
@annwrites24 @LeighAnnKopans Whoa, really? How does that work? Is it like homeschooling? #YAWritersAATJust Another Dreamer
@JadaAndAnQi @LeighAnnKopans There's this girl in my choir, Maddie, who plays eight different instruments. #YAWritersAATLost_in_Translation
@JadaAndAnQi @LeighAnnKopans She's an amazing singer, too, and she sightreads like a pro. Whenever I get lost, I follow her. #YAWritersAATLost_in_Translation
@LeighAnnKopans Band people are SUPER close. Esp. marching band. But they're also really accepting! :) #YAWritersAATOlivia
@EncoreUnReveur @LeighAnnKopans Essentially, yes. It's just online and technically it's still public school. #YAWritersAATAnn LeBlanc
@OliviasOpinions @LeighAnnKopans Yeah, they're some of the coolest people I've met. Next to drama geeks. #YAWritersAATLost_in_Translation
do students tend to gravitate towards the activities that are supervised by the "cool" teachers? #YAWritersAATJamie K.
@EncoreUnReveur @LeighAnnKopans YES. THIS. *was shunned from soccer 'cause I didn't grow up with the other girls* #YAWritersAATLost_in_Translation
@Rockets2Writing Not really. A lot of our clubs are largely student run and the teacher just supervises and guides if needed. #YAWritersAATJulie
@Rockets2Writing A lot of the teachers are cool in my school. Leadership is the coolest though. You roam free around school. #YAWritersAATLost_in_Translation
@Rockets2Writing Definitely. No one wants to go to the club held by that one teacher that calls us dirty-fat-Americans. #YAWritersAATJust Another Dreamer
@Rockets2Writing My favorite is my ASL teacher though. She's a little nuts. She supervises Improv Club. #YAWritersAATLost_in_Translation
@EncoreUnReveur @Rockets2Writing My ASL teacher calls us that. And morons. And 3rd graders. She loves us though. #YAWritersAATLost_in_Translation
@CinderScoria @Rockets2Writing My Spanish teacher...hates us. So. #YAWritersAATJust Another Dreamer
#YAWritersAAT Okay, I'm off to finish (or, y'know, start) my essays. Later, guys! :)Just Another Dreamer
@EncoreUnReveur @Rockets2Writing Yeah, Tubbs is kind of eccentric. She's like Gibbs. Except scarier. #YAWritersAATLost_in_Translation
@EncoreUnReveur @Rockets2Writing And she yells at you without ever raising her voice. We had to get her a swear jar. #YAWritersAATLost_in_Translation
@Rockets2Writing Totally. I had a creative writing class and we wrote short stories and ate cookies. It was epic. #YAWritersAATJadaAndAnQi
@Rockets2Writing But you also want to avoid teachers who TRY to be "cool". They're kind of turn out to be a bit...eccentric. #YAWritersAATJadaAndAnQi
@JadaAndAnQi @Rockets2Writing Oh my word, that sounds amazing. We need a writing club in my school. We have everything else! #YAWritersAATLost_in_Translation
@LeighAnnKopans Tutus are all the rage here. Even spirited boys make tutus and wear them to games! Mostly football. #YAwritersAATKari Bradley
@CinderScoria @JadaAndAnQi You should start one :) It's a great club to have and will look great on a college application :) #YAWritersAATJamie K.
#YAWritersAAT Have to sign off now- thanks for all the insight !Amanda Clay
@Rockets2Writing @JadaAndAnQi Yeah, I keep saying I will, but I'm not the best person to do it. I'm only part-time at the HS. #YAWritersAATLost_in_Translation
@LeighAnnKopans A LOT of our boys are playing lacrosse. LAX they call it. #YAwritersAATKari Bradley
@KariBradley7 @LeighAnnKopans I noticed that too. And people break the "no hat" rule allll the time. #YAWritersAATLost_in_Translation
@CinderScoria you could still do it. Don't hesitate, just do it :) if you don't someone else may not either. #YAWritersAATJamie K.
@CinderScoria @LeighAnnKopans High schoolers in our area get to carry backpacks & wear hats. Huge honor after jr. high. ;-) #YAWritersAATKari Bradley
@KariBradley7 @LeighAnnKopans Luckyyyyyyyyy! I have forty-two bandanas, and I never get to wear them. *SIGH* #YAWritersAATLost_in_Translation
@CinderScoria @LeighAnnKopans Bandanas are actually outlawed because they're gang related. ;-) Except for spirit days. #YAWritersAATKari Bradley
@KariBradley7 @LeighAnnKopans Honestly, gangs are laughed at around my community. We're whiter than white. No gangs here. #YAWritersAATLost_in_Translation
Thanks for an amazing #YAWritersAAT you guys! Sorry I was so in and out tonight. :( #migraineLeigh Ann Kopans
Thanks especialy to @EncoreUnReveur @ABoredAuthor @CinderScoria @JulieHeartBooks @mobrienbooks and anyone else who answered #YAWritersAATLeigh Ann Kopans
