We have a problem at our school. The orchestra and band students get to go on fun Lagoon trips, and when they are older, they get to go to Disney Land and other big trips. But, what about the students who do art, young living, woodworking, drama, etc. Is their talent in what they do not good enough to go on fun trips and do fun things?
In 7th grade, the orchestra and band students get to go on a fun trip to Lagoon. They play in the amusement park, get to go on all the rides, and spend lots of time together. Then, in high school, the orchestra and band students get to go on a super fun trip to either Disneyland or Washington D.C. They get to stay in a super huge hotel, play at the beach, play in the amusement park, and have a whole lot of fun. Meanwhile, all the other electives are stuck at school, wishing they could show off their talent in fun places as well.
Art students, young living students, woodworking students, drama students, while all the other elective students work just as hard as orchestra and band students. As their musical friends tell them about how excited they are to go on a super fun trip, the other elective students are jealous and wonder why they don’t get to do fun things as well. Many orchestra and band students say, “Well, you should have just joined the band” or “You should have joined the orchestra, then you could come with us.” But, some students do other electives because they want to, or they aren’t in a position where they can play a musical instrument. Maybe they don’t read music as well as other students. They don’t do orchestra or band because they don’t want to. They would much rather do another elective. But, they still wish they could go on fun trips and do fun activities.
In conclusion, all students that do other electives should get to do fun things and show off their skills. Understandably, the school administration may not be able to, pay for many electives to go on big trips. But they should still allow for art showcases or woodworking/young engineering showcases. Other elective students should be able to feel just as appreciated as music students and get to go on fun trips and do fun activities.
