Student Council Plans Homecoming

Kaitlyn Seifert, Staff Writer

Student council is an organization of students who plan events and activities for the school. Every year those involved plan the homecoming dance.

However, nobody really knows what it takes to plan such a big event and how stressful it is according to junior Sacara Hopper, Stuco Treasure Secretary,

“You go to the summer workshop, which is a weeklong student council [event where different districts] come together, and spend the week going over leadership success and over motivational speeches and how we can benefit our school. Then we talked to other schools about what they did to benefit their school. It’s fun being an officer because you get to experience stuff with like, your closest friends.”

One of the more popular clubs, students feel it is a great experience, however, there are some weird rules you must go by when planning things such as the homecoming dance.

“Currently we aren’t allowed to have tables, Mr. Kirk said he wants to leave dancing room for all the students. We must keep the lights on during because [the administration]  wants to be able to see everything.”

Planning the dance is difficult, there are so many little details to worry about. Students need to pick a theme that the majority of students like, budgeting money, posting on social media, and selling tickets just to name a few.

“Well, as officers, we normally plan everything out for whatever project we’re working on. Money budgeting, posting on social media, writing out our briefs. So, we must give a description of every project we do. That’s usually what we’re doing every day in STUCO.”

Homecoming takes a very long time to plan according to Sacara. Stuco has been working hard to make sure all the details are taken care of for those who are buying tickets to the dance.

“Homecoming has been in the works for a while like before school [started], we had to come up with [ideas] like the homecoming theme. So, everyone would all sit in the same room, and we would all come up with themes, and then we would agree on which one we think is the best. And this was like, two weeks before school started. So, we’ve been working on it since then, until now.”
