Question: How do you hold politicians accountable? Answer: Not sure there is a good answer in the short term. In the long term, it starts by not signing a petition for a potential Student Gov Rep until they answer any questions you have and convince you that they are worthy to be on the ballot. Helping these Student Gov candidates today will help make more accountable politicians tomorrow. Student Government petitions may be picked up from Mr. Ryan or your Class Dean.
There are some of you who have practiced breaking a t-shirt out of a block of ice and then wear it for many years. This is a talent, but a talent that many others may be a little judgy about. Don’t listen to the Frozen t-shirt Shamers. Show your talent on May 19th at the Frozen T-Shirt event at Spring Day. If that is not your talent, Spring Day will also have Jug Ball, Soccer, Slip and Slide, a Slow Bike Race, Trivia, basketball, and much, much more.
Happy Birthday today to Javad Gasimov! Happy Birthday on Sunday to Elise D’Ambra, Jackson Kaufman, Cody McElroy, and Ayumi Suzuki! A special Happy Birthday on Sunday to Michael Millett from his advisory, and to Rory Higgs from all his friends!
