Samueli Academy Charter High School depends on many people to function properly and keep the students happy. One important group is ASB. ASB stands for Associated Student Body. They are important because they plan our school dances, and other special events for our school.
“ASB is about being a leader and doing things others wouldn’t do or demonstrate school spirit for others,” said Cynthia Antuche, a member of ASB.
The Associated Student Body is led by the facilitator, Mrs. Juhl-O’Brien, and members from the Junior, Sophomore, and now Freshmen grades. ASB has currently been working on new events to promote school spirit for the future.
“We have a lot of exciting things planned, and it’s our first year, but I think it’s gonna work out,” said Cynthia Antuche.
This year so far, ASB has planned a school dance for ‘Welcome Week’: “A lot of the kids said it was the best dance the school has had,” said Iridyan Jimenez, a junior.
ASB has done a successful dance, but there are a lot of things that go behind the planning of these events. To manage the budget and still meet the students requirements, ASB counts with a treasurer that organizes it. But, the members of ASB face many challenges.
“Some challenges is that we have to wake up early to prepare things like special events, and it’s not really easy. So, it is putting extra time to what you already do,” said Cynthia.
But, ASB counts on many people to help contribute to a decision. To make these decisions they use a voting system, and get feedback from other students: “Making a decision isn’t that hard, it’s making it happen and making it work,” said Cynthia. Overall, ASB is currently working on making the 2015-2016 school year good for the students.
“I wouldn’t change anything if I was in ASB because they are doing perfectly fine right now,” said freshman Mariana Navarrete.
“I think the school is benefiting because on freshmen year we had to plan school events as a whole, and it was really hard,” said Iridyan Jimenez.
