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

This week’s student senate meeting was centered around preparations for homecoming. Although talk surrounding the new abolished gender courts has ended, every seat in social studies teacher Melanie Gibbens’ room was still full. Yesterday, homecoming voting occurred, and while it was supposed to end at 4 pm yesterday, it will be opened up again today until 4 due to miscommunication. Only around 150 people voted yesterday, and there are 417 people in the senior class. Furthermore, a few students who aren’t seniors voted. Homecoming court voting is only available for seniors, and students’ votes will be dismissed if they are underclassmen. Homecoming court should be final by tomorrow morning.

Later this week, homecoming ticket sales will start. Different committees have been meeting in order to get ready for next week. This week’s meeting revolved around committees splitting up to prepare for next week. 

“I think it’s going to be the best year ever at City High Homecoming due to the theme of Party Gras,” Gabe Baird ‘21 said.  

Additionally, student senate treasurer, Demetrious Littlemoon ‘20, gave a presentation on possible spending for the year. 

The parade will be on September 25, and the dance on September 28. Student senate meetings are open to all students at 8:15 am in Ms. Gibbens’ room on Wednesday mornings.
