Freshman Representatives

To bring together the 9th grade class through fun activities throughout the year, we want the new 9th grade students to feel connected to the returning students.

The mission of our campaign is to make all freshmen feel like they have a place to be themselves. We want the OCSA 9th grade community to always be aware of what's going on around them.

 

Goals

  1. Ice Cream Social: We want to have events where all freshmen can bond while enjoying ice cream. We would have fun games set up so after the students finish their ice cream, they can enjoy fun games with each other. We would as have lots of board games to encourage everyone to play something! There will be fun prizes to encourage the students to win! There could be music while the students play.

  2. Monthly emails updates: We want everyone to always be aware of upcoming events such as show, or events! Although the school has other forms of communication, sometimes the freshman information gets lost in between that of the other grades, but with this system the freshmen class will be able to be informed of everything that only retains to them.

  3. Winter Movie night: Last year the movie night was a huge success, so we thought it would be fun to do it again! This year we want to let the students vote for a winter themed movie, so everyone feels like a part of the decision make done, and this makes them aware of the event before it happens . We could possibly put on a gift exchange, which would be lots of fun! We want to make the freshmen community feel like they can have a break after a hectic week by letting them be able to sit down exchange some gifts.

Junior Representatives

As Junior representatives we wish to rehabilitate OCSA culture that has been lost in the past years by implementing fun events and activities for the whole class to participate in. Our goal as Junior Representatives is to make junior (perceived as the most stressful high school year) the most fun and stress free year as possible. As Junior representatives we want to represent the junior class as diverse as it is. If elected we would like to recreate the culture of OCSA that has been lost as the years have carried on. In earlier years when drum circles were a weekly activity on 10th street as high school students jammed out being comfortable with the people around them. As we have been attending OCSA, since 7th grade, we have seen the acceptance and inclusiveness of OCSA start to diminish. While being representatives we wish to bring back this culture by hosting concerts for local bands (both OCSA students and local artists) to reunite the class through music and positivity. Junior year is the most stressful year of highschool, this information being passed down from parents, seniors, and graduates curates an unhealthy environment for students which as representatives, we would like to change. As representatives we would provide fun activities to ease the minds of fellow juniors and remind them that mental and physical health should be the top priority for us teenagers.

Goals:

1)  Off campus lunch

2)  OCSA concerts (renting out The Observatory or Locker Room)

3)  Field trip (discovery cube or trampoline park)

4)  Taco Truck Tuesday

5)  Craft Station Socials
