Student Council is planning for the spirit week and “Secret Garden” Homecoming dance on Oct. 18. Students split up into commissions in order to plan and organize the events of the week.
Spirit days posters
Junior Karel Saquing and sophomore Cassandra Tipon make a poster that will advertise the spirit days during Homecoming week. The posters are a way for Student Council to remind students what the spirit days are, so they will be more likely to participate. "We make these posters to promote school spirit, because it is important to have pride for yourself and your school," Saquing said.
Senior Class President Lisa Blais makes buttons that will hold the Homecoming sashes together. The election commission is in charge of the elections that will be held for Homecoming, as well as advertising and promoting nominations. "This is the first time that I'm using this machine to make the buttons, so it's going to take me a while to figure it out," Blais said.
Flag football waivers
Senior Hugo Silva and junior Vahina Li organize and sort through the permission slips for the flag football game that will be held next Friday. The logistics commission is in charge of handling the paperwork for events, such as the flag football game and the Battle of the Sexes. "We come up with the shirts, find coaches, make banners and organize the details of events so that they run smoothly," Silva said.
Senior Class Treasurer Kelly Siu paints Homecoming posters that will be placed around the school during Homecoming week. Student Council created posters to put up in each building, in order to remind students about Homecoming-related events, such as the cost of tickets. "We endeavor to use our creativity when it comes to making posters," Siu said.
Lunch games commission
Commissioner Lindsey-Joy Zangler and co-commissioner Morgan Nogal discuss ideas for the lunch games that will take place during Homecoming week. The lunch games commission is in charge of planning the games and making sure students during lunch are enjoying their time. "We strive that these games will get all the students excited for the game and the dance," Nogal said.
