It’s that time of the year again! Pumpkin spiced everything is flying off the shelves, Halloween costumes are being decided on, and the leaves are fluttering down from the trees: everything you’d expect from fall.
However, what you might not know about this wonderful season is that the Student Council has been working hard behind the scenes to bring you all sorts of fantastic events, some of which are happening in the fall!
“What?” You may be asking, “the Student Council? What do they do?”
Well, you’ve come to the right blog.
I’ve been a member of the Student Council family for about a year now, and the first thing I can tell you is that it’s just that: a family. Every member finds themselves at home after just a few meetings, and it’s always accepting new members to join the family.
If you’re interested in joining, contact Kennedy Pohl, who’s the President of the Student Council, or any other member of the Student Council. Mr. Spiess and Mrs. Kirkvold also run and supervise the Student Council, so if you have any further questions after this post, they would be able to answer them.
The Student Council deals with planning events like Spirit Week, Bring your own Blue/Banana, Run for the Cure, and the Pep Rally! They also do fundraising for many different causes, like the Read-World foundation, which provides school supplies to schools in the Philippines that were badly damaged by the Typhoon in 2013.
On top of all of their planning and fundraising, the Student Council will also volunteer at places like the Soup Kitchen.
Keep an eye out for events happening soon, like the Pep Rally, which will be going down on October 23. The Pep Rally will feature a Halloween Theme, and will be the day you should get dressed up on, as October 31st is our Remembrance Ceremony. (Please do not dress up in your Halloween Costume on October 31st.)
As a bonus, there will be costume oriented events and contests, so don’t forget to dress up!
If, after reading this, you think the Student Council is for you, they meet every Monday on the East Campus in room 213. (Sometimes they have food.)
