In order to inform students about the details regarding Grad Nite, StuCo will be holding a mandatory after school meeting on Nov. 3 in the cafeteria. Information about the meeting was handed out on Oct. 18 when StuCo handed out free doughnuts to seniors.
“One of the things that I am looking forward to most about Grad Nite trip is being able to spend time with friends,” senior Trina Lehner said. “It’s really important to create these amazing memories with your friends because you never know when you’re going to see them again.”
During the first part of the meeting, StuCo will provide details of the trip date, fees and necessary paperwork that needs to be completed prior to Grad Nite.
“One of the reasons we made this meeting mandatory is because we just want to say everything all at once,” StuCo adviser Miriya Julian said. “If people don’t show up to the meeting then they won’t be aware of deadlines and it just makes the process a big mess.”
Other important announcements include new graduation robes and date of graduation if it has been decided by then. StuCo hopes to adjourn the meeting by 3:30 p.m.
“I believe that if the meeting is going to be mandatory there needs to be more than one opportunity to get the information,” senior Moira Johnson said. “People have to go to work, get sick, etc and they should have the equal opportunity to be able to attend Grad Nite.”
The only students who will be excused are those with an approved pre-arranged absence or those who are unable to request off from work. If a student’s shift starts after 3:30, they will not be excused. Those who were given permission by Julian to not attend will then need to meet with her the following Monday to receive the necessary information.
“I believe it is really important for students to go to grad nite because it is the ‘final’ thing students get to do on their senior year,” Class of 2018 StuCo president Alyssa Colligas said. “It is important to go with friends because you have gone through four years of memories together why not make one great last memory with all of your friends together?”
