Student Council is not decking the halls this year

 Student Council’s goal is to bring morale and a sense of community to the school. But with school being completely virtual for the rest of the semester they have been stripped of the majority of their duties. 

    Student Council (Stuco) has a hand in a lot of holiday activities in the month of December hoping to keep people infused with cheer during the terrible time known as finals week. 

   “We normally do activities to boost student and teacher morale during finals week (hot chocolate, candy canes, teacher appreciation gifts) as well as the senior class’s “Do Good December” project through Chick-Fil-A Leader Academy, which is a pretty big community outreach project, which varies from year to year based on what that year’s seniors decide. We also decorate the hallways for the holidays,” Hailie Donaldson, senior, said. 

   Although their interactions with students and staff are limited, Stuco still found a way to do something small yet meaningful for the community. 

   “We are asking our STUCO members to purchase one small item off of the Hope House wish list. Once they have their item, they are supposed to drop it off at school and our officers are going to set up a day to drop it all off for them,” Jennifer Mooney, Stuco sponsor, said. 

   So while there was no decking the halls this year, Student Council did their best to continue their tradition of spreading joy and hope even though it may look a little different. As Stuco welcomes in the new year they hope they continue to do their best to adapt and persevere to make the most out of this year.
