The student council votes we tallied and presented during lunch September 25th. Their first official meeting took place September 29th. For those who missed this exciting event Jack Meier is now the Director of Social Media, Andrew Van Winkle as Secretary, Deryk Harlan as Treasurer, Orion Syth as Vice President, and our one and only Eleanore Mearns as our brave new President. These are not the only members of the student council, our representatives are very important too. They attend meetings and are the voice for each year; Drew Meier and Kai Jacobs as freshmen reps, Carissa Lonizisero and Matthew Deacan for the sophomores, Martin Chilcott and RJ Rogers for the juniors, and Amanda Berntsen for the seniors.
Oddly enough, the representatives were more willing than the “actual” student council members to answer questions about the first council meeting. All reported that they made progress, as well as getting to know one another. “The first student council meeting was productive because we all talked as a team and everyone listened to each other. We talked about everything on our agenda in one meeting and our agenda helped the group stay focused,” Stated by Carissa Lonizisero.
When asked if they believe this year’s Student Council will make a good team, all gave similar answers. “Yes, because we all were born to have an impact that no matter how small the role we can still,” Kai Jacobs boldly stated.
“I’m positive that this group is going to be a good team. Already we are working together making decisions and getting great ideas,” said by Eleanore Mearns.
“That’s a question that will be answered in the near future. I know a few people on the student council, but there are some people I don’t know. I’m interested to know if the student council will work together as a team just as much as the rest of the student body,” Stated by Amanda Berntsen.
With barely a whisper on the fate of the fall dance, the student body is left to wonder. However, the word is that an announcement regarding this event should take place Wednesday, October 7th. This school is filled with students raving about the 1985 move “Back to the Future.” Why? Well, this year is when Marty McFly and Dr. Emmet Brown travel too, October 21st, 2015, the year of hover boards. Students have been speculating that the dance could be “Back to the Future” themed. Will this dance be themed, or will there be a special event commemorating this event?
