The Student Senate meeting for this week took place on Wednesday, September 20. It began with a review and discussion of the Homecoming parade, which was on Tuesday, September 19.

The leader of the Homecoming dance committee, Zoë Butler ’19, then reported on the progress of the dance. Decorations have been bought and the art club will continue to paint other decorations throughout the week. The Senate will be decorating the cafeteria on Saturday morning.

The sign-up for ticket sales was then set up, with a sign-up sheet available for members. Tickets will be sold during all three lunch periods and after school. They are five dollars, and special passes must be obtained from and signed by the main office staff to bring a guest who does not attend City High. The Senate then discussed the need for faculty and parent chaperones for the dance.

Amy Kahle, City High’s student-family advocate, then discussed the gender-neutral restrooms with the Senate, which brought up the feminine hygiene disposal facilities and the removal of the urinals, as well as its wish to educate students about the fact that the restroom is an all-gender space.

The Senate then split into committees to continue Homecoming planning.

The Senate meets every Wednesday morning in room 3311 at 8:15 am. To learn more, contact Mr. Tygrett, the primary faculty advisor, or attend meetings, which are open to all students.
