Student Council preps for Homecoming, Spirit Week, and other events in October.
After a successful first month of the school year, the Student Council has some plans and ideas in place for October. Senior and Student Council President Rich Heany was happy about how things went in September, and is optimistic on how things are looking for this month.
The first event in September that Heany thought was a success was the D-schedule handball tournament
“I thought [the handball tournament] went really well. I thought we had a good reaction from that. The students seemed to like it.” Heany said.
Also, the Student Council introduced the first annual Color Run in September, which took place during the C.A.R.E.S Walk.
“There wasn’t that big of a crowd, which is expected for the first year,” Heany said. “Of the kids who did it, they said they really liked it. I feel like this is something that can grow in the future.”
In regards to October, the Student Council’s main focus is on Spirit Week, the annual event where each day during the week leading up to Homecoming is a different theme.
“We have some ideas in mind. We were thinking about a USA day Monday, jersey day Wednesday, college day Thursday, and Blue and Grey Day Friday,” Heany said. “We just need to figure out Tuesday. Our initial idea wasn’t allowed.”
In an email sent to the student body on October 19, Student Council officially announced the dress down themes listed below.
During the Blue and Grey Games, the annual festivities on the Friday before Homecoming, Student Council is planning an Egg Toss.
“We always have the Fastest Kid and Closest Throw competitions, but we feel like the Egg Toss will be fun,” Heany said “It will be really competitive too.”
Student Council has also been actively working to arrange for a Senior Lounge.
Altogether, Heany said he is looking forward to fall activities. “We’re really excited about the things we have planned, especially for Spirit Week,” he said. “We’ll see how it goes.”
