If your articles can be autobiographical, write about hobbies you have. Be descriptive - how did you begin, what do you like about the activity, have you been to any special places or had any unique experiences in connection with the hobbies? You might be able to develop several weeks worth of papers, focussing on one hobby each week.

If you need to write about other topics, look around your school. What would you change about the building, the school surroundings, the classes, the cafeteria and/or menu? How would you improve things? Consider your hometown and answer those same questions - what would make it a better place to live?
