HS STUCO Sets Goals for the Year
Posted 09/14/2017 09:16AM

The high school student council aspires to create a unified community through inspiring all members to develop a positive attitude with the collective aim of implementing sustainable change. Furthermore, STUCO also promotes the general student welfare, furthers education and democracy, provides meaningful self-government and ensures that the voice of the student body is heard and rightly represented in all discussions of student policy. STUCO comprises of 2 advisors, a president, vice president, treasurer and secretary and 2 grade representatives for each grade. In addition to this mission, STUCO also organizes several events throughout the year such as haunted house and spirit weeks.

The election process started last year when entire high school elected the executive board: president and vice president as a slate, secretary and treasurer. In order to run for an executive position, an individual needed write a statement of intent, acquire the signature of 3 teachers and 5 students and give a speech for the high school student body. The grade representatives were elected early this year in a similar election process. In order to run, candidates also needed to submit a statement of intent as well as acquire signatures and give a speech for their grade. And here are the STUCO members for this year:

President: Jaro Van Diepen
Vice-President: Lisa Peng
Treasurer: Kiho Park
Secretary: Chris Kim
Grade 9: Yijoo Choi and Emmie Xue
Grade 10: Leo Chang and Kelly Yu
Grade 11: Ryan Choi and Sean Sun
Grade 12: Min Ji Kim and Coco Lau

Advisors: Mr. Gibson and Mrs. Krouse

This year, due to poor weather conditions, STUCO was unable to have the retreat by the beach where the retreat usually takes place. Instead, we had the retreat at school on the Saturday after beach retreat. At the retreat, STUCO create a set of norms to abide, a set of goals to achieve before the end of the year and unified STUCO as a group. Unlike last year, a priority of this year's STUCO retreat was to amend the STUCO Constitution due to the fact that last year, STUCO agreed that the Constitution was outdated as it still included clauses regarding GPA and other non-applicable clauses. The Constitution is body of fundamental principles and established precedents according to which STUCO is acknowledged to be governed. I think that the retreat was a great success as STUCO was able to bond as an organization as well as outline a very detailed and comprehensive plan for the year.
