These students will also represent the class for the rest of the school year as a part of the Student Council. Student Council members will meet with the ASB Vice President once a month to discuss issues with the school and to help with ASB decisions like Homecoming and Nom Con themes.
SADIE HAWKINS DANCE: ASB is hosting its very first Sadie Hawkins dance. The dance will be on Friday, February 12 in the gym from 8:30-10:30 pm. This dance is a little different from other dances because at Sadie Hawkins, the girls ask the guys. So ladies, if you’re interested in competing to be our very first Miss Sadie Hawkins, please come to a mandatory meeting in Mrs. Elliott’s art room, room 702, today during lunch. Anyone can compete and all you need to do is make a video of you asking your date in the most creative way possible. We will narrow down the videos to the top ten. Then, at an assembly, we will have the audience vote on their favorite. That night, at the dance, we will award our first Miss Sadie Hawkins. So look out boys…the girls are coming for you.
SULTAN BASKETBALL: Come out and support your Santana Basketball teams as they start league play against El Cajon tonight in the Sultan Dome. Let’s make it rain purple. Girls play at 5:30 and the boys at 7:00.
