Invested in the workings of City High’s very own bureaucracy? You’ve come to the right place.

The student senate meeting on Wednesday, January 9, 2019, began with an announcement from President Lottie Gidal ’19 about Powderpuff volleyball’s rescheduling.

“We will have a date for that in the next couple of weeks,” Gidal said.

Gidal also mentioned a change in the way the senior picnic is catered. She said that it would be possible to change from Hy-Vee food to other, more economical options.

“You can get enough cake to feed 400 people for about $250,” Gidal said. “We’ve also contacted a couple of food trucks…to come station themselves next to the cake.”

Vice President Naomi Meurice ’19 discussed the food pantry, on which the senate is still working and to which the Powderpuff volleyball teams will donate.

“We’ll go shopping this weekend,” Meurice said. “That was a good idea, instead of donating to the Crisis Center, we can donate to our [food pantry.”

The senate also began discussing the prom, which will be held from 8-11 pm on May 4, 2019.

“Maybe next Thursday, we’ll go to check out the IMU. We have the DJ booked and we have to see about the dance floor arrangements…[and] table decorations,” faculty adviser Judith Dickson said. “I would like the ticket design done by March 1. We want to be super organized.”

The senate meets every Wednesday at 8:15 in Room 3311. To learn more, attend meetings, which are open to all students, or contact Steve Tygrett, the primary faculty adviser.
