The Student Senate meeting on Wednesday, February 7 began with a discussion of prom themes.

“The last three have been ‘Space Odyssey,’ ‘An Evening in Paris,’ and ‘Music of the Night,'” Steve Tygrett, the faculty adviser for Student Senate, said a few moments before vetoing the suggestion of a Kylie Jenner-themed prom.

Several methods for deciding on the prom theme, such as putting out a list to the public, voting within the Senate, and forming a committee to decide on the theme.

“Usually themes are decided as a large group,” Roeder said in response to the third option. “That’s how it’s been done all the time I’ve been here.”

The Senate eventually selected “Great Gatsby” as the theme for the 2018 prom.

The Senate moved on to discussing how it could better publicize the sexual harassment hotlines available to students.

“I had a report…where someone didn’t know where to file a harassment complaint,” President Teagan Roeder ’18 said. “I think it would be very important if we could put up posters saying, ‘This is where you can make an anonymous report.'”

Vice President Patrick McMillan presented the preparations for the upcoming student dodgeball tournament, which will be co-ed and has no set date as yet. Sign-up sheets for the self-defense class on the afternoon of February 24th are located in the main office and around the school.

Lottie Gidal ’18 asked for funds for Recycling Club to put in a dumpster behind the cafeteria in which the custodial staff can place recycling.

“Right now the janitors throw away all the recycling from the cafeteria because they say they have nowhere to put it and there isn’t room for a dumpster,” Gidal said. “There is room for a dumpster.”

The Senate voted unanimously to grant Recycling Club $50 for this project.

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