  April doesn’t just bring May flowers, it also brings fun activities to do during the spring for Wauconda High School students! Whether it be sports, clubs, or outside activities, we all look forward to the warm weather and soft green grass. But how can you soak up that fresh air and vitamin D while also being involved in clubs/sports? There are many activities to get yourself involved in, including the spring play. The spring play this year is Macbeth by Shakespeare. It includes lots of special effects including stage blood, real sword fighting and amazing lighting. 

  Research from states “Spring, with its undeniable charm, influences our mental health in myriad ways. The season offers a break from winter’s grip, encourages engagement with nature, and promotes physical activity – all factors that can boost our mood and mental well-being.” Warm weather and the Bright sun allows students to bring their activities outside, or even during the school day. Dr. Mack states, “I get to teach outside sometimes and it’s fun for me and my students.” On the students’ side, there are several events to enjoy. Iz dewar says “I like Spring Fling because I get to hang out with my friends.”. Being outside and connecting with your community is so important and the springtime is a perfect time to meet new people and join new club activities before summer break starts. There is also a wide range of clubs that you can join at anytime including YAB, French Club, Drama Club, TRUST, and many other clubs that you can check out on the Wauconda high school’s website.

  There are also plenty of sports taking place during spring at Wauconda high school like Track, Soccer, lacrosse, Tennis, and baseball. Participating in sports is a great way to enjoy the fresh air and spend time with friends, while also competing in fun games. If you would like to join a sport for next year, make sure to email the coaches from the Wauconda high school website located under the staff directory.

  Spring, bringing longer days of sunshine, is a wonderful time to soak in the warmer weather, fresh air, and school activities that are flowing in as the school year ends. So get out there and join these clubs!
