New at the High School this Year: Class Competitions
October 18, 2018
The South O'Brien High School Student Council is trying something new this year: class competitions. These competitions will take place all year with a winner every quarter. Students in grades 9-12 participate in homeroom activities, dress up days, and attend sporting events in order to gain points for their class.
At the end of each quarter, the class with the most points gets to choose from a wide range of large prizes tempting enough to inspire many students to participate. Prizes include: early outs, late starts, pizza parties, open campus privileges and many others.
According to Student Body President Richard Nyunt, "The student council started these competitions because it is a good way to try and inspire more school spirit." He goes on to explain, "We thought ongoing quarterly class competitions with bigger rewards would be more enticing and interesting for the students."
Nyunt suggests, "The easiest ways to earn points are to follow the competition twitter, and earn points if you tweet out a picture of yourself there. Anything that shows school spirit could earn class points." Each month there will be a competition in the gym during homeroom for students to earn points for their class.
Currently, the juniors lead quarter one with an enormous point total, followed by the sophomores, freshman, and seniors.
