Weston High School Student Government Meeting – February 10, 2017

Meeting Called to order at 8:50 a.m.

All members present


·       Spring fling: we have a lot of free reign as to what we can do

·       Face painting is an option, but it is hard to execute

·       Slip and slide would be great, but it would require a hose and water supply which may be logistically hard. There has to be good weather or people will not want to get wet

·       There is a large range of ages that have to be satisfied, so it would be nice to satisfy as many people as possible

·       Balloon shaving is a fun activity and is likely the best option

·       An obstacle course would be a nice overarching activity that could include competitive aspects as well as other ideas

·       Doughnut on a string is nice but it is done every year on Halloween, so it’s not the best idea

·       We want to do balloon shaving! We need the following items

·       A sign, baby wipes, razors, balloons (a couple 100), shaving cream (10-ish cans), a tarp and a trash bag or two, string and duct tape to attach it to a chair, candy for prizes, markers, a potential helium tank

·       Onto planning our semi and other issues, we need some way to organize our class meetings, as it tends to be a bit disorderly

·       The black box is a tight space and it is hard to use up the full 30 minutes

·       We will probably show the video for CNL seen at the conference today and probably create a Kahoot, or ask people to make one for our approval

·       For the upcoming meeting on the 2nd, we will make a Kahoot and then ask others to make some for future meetings

·       A google form will be going out today for volunteering for the dance

·       A weighted GPA – The consensus is that it’s not a great idea as it leads to students making bad decisions for just a check mark

Meeting adjourned at 10:20


Weston High School Student Government Meeting – February 15, 2017

Meeting Called to order at 7:00 a.m.

All members present


·       Spring Fling on April 29th, we are hoping for a balloon shaving booth

·       We are unable to check in on how donations for the breakfast on March 8th are coming along, but, to clarify, they will all be monetary to make the process simpler

·       We are selling more mittens and they will be available at the upcoming concerts (string fling, band fest, and maybe spring sing?)

·       The specific committees that people will be able to sign up for, with Decorations being the most important, but we also need Food, Marketing (mainly for sign-ups and spreading the word)

·       We have a DJ planned out for a good price

·       Food: It will be more appetizer-like items and have desert and soda bars (with a potential candy bar)

·       Numbers on the windbreakers are coming in, they will hopefully be available soon, likely ¼ zip with some personalization options

Meeting adjourned at 7:30
