The Student Senate meeting on Wednesday, September 19 began with an announcement that Superintendent Steve Murley would be visiting the Senate during the meeting. President Lottie Gidal ’19 and Vice President Naomi Meurice ’19 discussed final preparations for Homecoming week.

“We still need referees for the Powderpuff game, and people to post flyers,” Meurice said.

Faculty Adviser Steve Tygrett helped reacquaint the Senate with the process of ticket selling.

“We’re doing after school in the main foyer,” Tygrett said, “and in the cafeteria area by the Best Buddies mural.”

Faculty Adviser Judith Dickson discussed the decorations purchased for the dance.

“Because I’m 48 years old and not in high school, I don’t really care,” Dickson said. “I’ve never watched High School Musical…but I’ve divided [decorations] into categories. We need to all take down after the dance.”

The Senate parade committee, led by Faculty Adviser Chip Hardesty, presented on the parade and the special activities at the beginning of the parade festivities.

“The art club is going to be doing face painting at the playground at the start of the parade,” Hardesty said. “There will also be voter registration.”

The Senate broke into committees.

The Student Senate meets every Wednesday from 8:15-8:45 in room 3311. To learn more, please attend meetings, which are open to all students.
