StuCo held a public forum for students to attend on Tues. March 7 in the Senior Cafe. The event, which was organized by sophomore class secretary Hannah Barnes, and junior class representative Tyler Orbin, started off slowly, according to Barnes.

“I think at first it was a little awkward,” Barnes said. “Once we got in the swing of things, we got a lot of good ideas.”

While students gave a lot of ideas, one idea that StuCo introduced was having the school support the Bandage Project in honor of Noah Wilson, who passed away when he was seven years old.

“The band aid fundraiser is going to be on opening day for the Royals,” Barnes said. “I know we wanted to make it a spirit day where everyone wears Royals and brings a box of band aids. I also think you can bring a monetary donation.”

Another idea introduced was the Senior Walk. The event would take place at the end of the year and would include seniors walking through the halls of Mill Valley one last time.

“For the Senior Walk we wanted to do a last goodbye … where they walk around the school one last time and potentially invite elementary schoolers and middle schoolers to come,” Barnes said.

Freshman Abby Miller believes the forum was a success overall and will attend the next open forum.

“I learned a lot. It was interesting to see what they wanted to work on and it was really cool to get everyone’s opinions,” Miller said. “Even though not many people attended, if they got the word out better, with more of these they could really improve StuCo and Mill Valley.”

Barnes looks forward to the rest of the year and has a positive outlook for it.

“StuCo’s goals for the rest of the year is to keep spirits high and make Mayhem Week really awesome,” Barnes said.
