If you’re a quiet kid and need a club, you should keep reading.
I have always been one of the quiet kids.
I know how hard it is to be alone without any friends. So, maybe a club might help quiet kids like us get more friends and not be as quiet.
Some kids like to stay quiet, and that’s okay, but maybe if there were more clubs available, people might socialize better.
Some of us are so quiet that it’s hard to make friends. But if we were around more people we had things in common with, it might make it easier.
So, if you’re in need of a club, I have some ideas. The clubs that are stated in this letter, are clubs that aren’t here yet, but should get added. If or when they do get added and you’re interested in joining, I think you should go ahead.
I’m interested in joining an LGBTQ+ and band club if they’re added.
Many people are part of the LGBTQ+ community at our school, but some are quiet kids. I myself am one of them. And I know there are others that are quiet, too. I think that if there was an LGBTQ+ club, more kids that are part of the community could socialize with each other more.
But it’s not only an LGBTQ+ club that might help quiet kids socialize more. Other clubs for people with things in common might help too.
Clubs could bring people that are alike together.
I think that a club for band people would be a good idea. If there was a club for band people, they could practice and arrange for there to be an assembly so they could play in front of the school. And maybe sometimes they could play during lunch.
But, while I may be interested in an LGBTQ+ or band club, you may disagree or even be interested in a different type of club. I got some feedback from students and they had different opinions on what clubs should or shouldn’t be made.
Some people didn’t like the idea of an LGBTQ+ club because they felt it discriminates against straight people. Others felt that LGBTQ+ clubs were okay so that people could be more comfortable with each other, express their feelings and talk to like-minded people without the fear of being made fun of.
Some felt there shouldn’t be a band club because it would be too loud, but others felt that a band, car, or bike club would be okay.
Maybe we could have all those clubs.
All in all, what I’ve been trying to say in this letter is that, if you’re a quiet kid who needs a club, as I do, join the club! We’d be glad to have you.
