STUDENT COUNCIL NEWS! by Theo Sanders

Halloween Dance (Completed): On October 26, the student council organized and ran the haunted-festival themed Halloween Dance. Each student council member agreed that the dance was a great success, with very few flaws. We introduced a few new activities like a scary movie playing in the lobby during the dance, to provide students who did not want to dance an opportunity to enjoy a movie.

Senior Breakfast (Completed): Just as said with the Halloween Dance, the Senior Breakfast was also very successful. The students were split into groups of two jobs; servers and greeters. Great performances by our String Orchestra, the Chorus and Band. We received very positive feedback from the “seniors” who attended.

Winter Dance (Completed): Our winter themed dance, which was voted on by the entire school, was a great success.

Soxtober: In the month of October, students were told to bring in as many new sock pairs as possible for charity, and the winning grade with the most socks won a period where you decorate and eat your ice cream (AKA Ice Cream Social). 5th Grade won this year with the most socks, although the 6th grade made it quite a contest. The real point behind the sox drive is to give to those in need. We were successful once again this year, breaking our goal and donating over 2,000 pairs of new socks to a number of local charitable organizations.

Candy Canes: On the last week before Winter Break, the student council sold Candy Canes during all student lunch periods. This fundraiser was a great way to spread cheer.

Ugly Sweater Day: On the Friday before Winter Break, students were encouraged to wear ugly/funny Christmas sweaters. The hallways were very festive!!

Fun dip Sales : Fun Dip sales is a spin-off from the candy cane sales in December. There was a vote held by the student council on selling Fun dip, or chocolate hearts (to be used in a Valentine's day theme), and Fun dip won. Sales were held on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday on the week before February Vacation, and distributed Thursday (Valentine’s Day

Semi-Dance: Scheduled for Friday, April 5th, the “semi” dance is for 7th and 8th grade students.

Including others By: Maggie Jennings

Have you ever felt excluded, and didn't know what to do? If you tried talking to someone you trusted, well, you did the right thing. Talking to someone you trust can help you feel better about who is not including you. They can help you with the situation and help you find a solution.

If what the person said did not work or you are not comfortable with doing that then you can try playing/hanging out with a different group. Then they will probably include you if you choose a kind group (CHOOSE A KIND GROUP!).

If you choose a kind group and are now included in that group then you will be most likely to be happy (always include others)


Parents

Ask your child if they are feeling excluded. If they say yes please try some of the solutions above. You could ask your child who is making them feeling not included so you have more information about what is going on. It would make your child more happy if they feel included in school and so that they also feel comfortable going to school and at school.

Model UN

Over sixty years ago, Model UN programs started at colleges and universities across the United States. Soon after, Model UN continued to grow in academic institutions around the world. Through public speaking, critical thinking and in-depth research, the Model UN experience allows students to cultivate skills and enrich their global affairs knowledge through interactive competition. Model UN is a simulation of the UN General Assembly and its other multilateral bodies where students perform an ambassador role while debating topics.
