StuCo brings ideas to the table

The school year has officially started and many new additions are popping up in Fairbury Jr.-Sr. High school. With 36 members in stuco alongside their sponsors Mrs. Beranek and Ms. Beck for the 2015-2016 school year, will be creating new ideas to be more inviting and fun.

Some people may have noticed we have a new addition to our cafeteria. The microwave has become a big hit within the lunches. Students bring lunch from home, enjoy having more options.

“We wanted to give the students more lunch options,” Bethany Klaumann ‘17 said.

Some kids used to go to teachers rooms to use their microwave. Now we can use our own.

“Trent Grizzle said he used to have one at his school, and he brought it up one day and we all loved the idea,” Macy Ohlde ‘18 said.

Ohlde is the stuco president and had quite a bit to say about this upcoming year, especially new things for homecoming.

“We’re going to try to bring back the bonfire for homecoming and a drive in movie probably in the back of the school the week of homecoming. We’ll be playing the movie, Back To the Future, since that’s the theme,” Ohlde ‘18 said.

With that in mind, homecoming will be even a bigger hit. Many new additions are sure to be brought onto the horizon.

“It means a lot to be the president because the council believes I can make the school a better place,” Ohlde ‘18 said.

Mentioned before, having 36 members in stuco can have an impact on the organization.

“I think the upperclassmen can show the new members the ropes and help set up with dances and the camera for the stuco show,” Klaumann ‘17 said.

The stuco show has a variety of hosts this year. Paige Patton and Britney Scheetz host a few shows then hand it off to Jacob Johnson and Paul Mach for a few other shows. The show happens every Tuesday during block 1/2.

Student council is spicing it up this year. They’re getting more involved with fun activities and other additions while bringing back old traditions.
