After three weeks, Desert High ASB is off to a strong start. Already there’s been a pep rally and spirit day, and the snack bars opened August 29 for the first home volleyball games. Despite technical difficulties, all committees have worked harder to communicate with and advertise to the student body. In terms of efficiency and motivation, the first month has been a success thus far.
The current major focus of the Activities and Spirit Committees, along with ASB as a whole, is the 2017 Homecoming Week, set for October 10th-14th. Friday, October 13th is the Homecoming Pep Rally and football game, and the dance is the next day. Details about the theme, spirit week, and other such items forthcoming.
Aside from this, other individual committees have projects in the works as well. Throughout the year, Business and Sales (headed by Andrew Gomez) manages and works the ASB Snack Bars during home sports events. Academics (headed by Kaitlyne Klingman) plans and runs Honor Roll, Student of the Quarter, and related events. A goal of the Athletics committee (headed by Madison London) is to set up a Color Run for students in the near future. Lastly, Publicity (headed by Marcella Werre) works in the school display cases and to advertise events and news, both on campus and via email.
Nearly a month in, the class is already making strides toward a prosperous and memorable year. The current state of the ASB: optimistic.
