At this week’s meeting we tried to focus on the events that we have planned for the rest of the year.
On Friday, April 5 we are having the Prom pep assembly to announce the king and queen candidates. This will be the last pep assembly of the year, so students should come ready to represent their class.
The next big event that we are planning is Mayhem. Mayhem consists of a faculty versus students basketball game, a dodge ball tournament, a talent show, and mud volleyball. StuCo members will be working lunches during the month of April for students to sign up.
It is hard to believe that this week was the first week of the last quarter of the year. StuCo has done such a great job with hosting activities and getting the student body involved. I hope the last events that we host go well and we end the year on a good note.
MatchMaker results are no longer on sale during lunch. If you wish to buy your results, see Ms. Crist during seminar.
On Wednesday, March 13 we are hosting the last blood drive of the year. If you wish to donate you must sign up by Friday, March 8 with a StuCo member or Ms. Crist. For those of you who are donating, stay hydrated, eat a good breakfast on Wednesday and don’t forget your photo ID.
There will be a spirit week during the week of April 8. StuCo will be hosting the prom pep assmebly on Friday, April 12. This will be the last spirit week and pep assmebly of the year so show your jaguar spirit.
This year has been full of successful events hosted by StuCo, thank you for all of your support.
Thank you to all of those who donated to the Leukemia Lymphoma Society. We raised over $250 in candy gram sales.
Unfortunately Open Mic Night was canceled due to the lack of performers. But for those who are interested in expressing their talents, there will be a talent show during Mayhem week.
This month we have a blood drive on Wednesday, March 13. If you are interested in donating, contact a StuCo member or Ms. Crist. If you are under the age of 16 you will need a parent permission form. This will be our last blood drive of the year, so help us meet our quota and save a life.

I felt that the winter dance was a success. Many students went to the commons right after the dance and some left after the game to go home and change.
Although not all students stayed for the entire dance, at least a lot of people made an appearance. Since this was the first year that StuCo organized the dance I didn’t know what to expect. So, when I walked into the commons I was really excited to see my classmates dancing and having a good time.
Students can buy candy grams during lunch for $1-1.50 depending on if they want chocolates sent with their message. StuCo members will also selling candy grams at the varsity boys and girls basketball games on Tuesday, Feb. 12. All proceeds will go to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
On Wednesday, Feb. 20, we are hosting an open mic night. Students are welcome to perform, but not limited to, a musical piece or standup comedy. If you are interested in preforming contact me, or Ms. Crist.
I am looking forward to organizing and seeing all the performances.
It has been a busy, but spirited week. I saw a lot of student and faculty participation, which made all the planning and organizing worth it.
Ending a spirit week with a pep assembly is always the best. The entire student body is together and competing with each other. This is one of the only times that I feel like the school has a sense of unity.
The king and queen of winter sports will be announced during the half-time ceremony during the boys varsity game against Tonganoxie. The game begins at 7:15p.m.
The dance will begin 30 minutes after the game. Students who will are attending the game and the dance will enter the commons through the main gym doors. Students that are not attending the game but going to the dance will enter the building through the activities entrance and go through the gym, into the commons. Admission to the game and dance is free of charge with your school ID.
I am looking forward to both the game and the dance. Please come and support the king and queen of winter sports.
This week’s StuCo meeting consisted of making posters and getting the details figured out for the winter dance.
There has been a lot of confusion with the dance and we are trying our hardest to reach out to the student body to resolve any miscommunication. The dress code for the dance is that your attire has to be school appropriate.
We are also working on planning the pep assembly and planning our annual matchmaker survey. Students will be given the option to take a survey to see who they are most compatible with in their grade and in the school.
I am looking forward to seeing the whole student body together at the pep assembly as well as seeing who is my lucky number one match is.
Detailed preparation for this year’s winter dance is taking place within StuCo. Discussion and input from members at weekly meetings are helping to finalize the plans. StuCo will be hosting the dance on Friday, Feb. 1 from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. after the varsity boys basketball game against Tongagoxie High School. Admission will be free to all students and attire for the night must be school appropriate.
This is the first year StuCo has hosted the dance, and is also the first time it is being advertised under the name “winter dance” as opposed to “WPA.” According to StuCo sponsor Erica Crist, planning began immediately after winter break.
Sophomore StuCo member Savannah Rudicel said the name change occured because the dance will be free to all students.
“Because the dance is after a game, we don’t expect girls to pay for dinner at a restaurant,” Rudicel said.
Rudicel has positive thoughts about the upcoming dance.
“The only downside to having [the dance] after the game is that there’s less time to prepare. StuCo has less time to decorate and people are somewhat rushed to get ready,” Rudicel said. “I don’t think it matters though; it will be a good dance either way.”
