After extensive criticism over Palo Alto High School’s comparative lack of interest to Henry M. Gunn High School’s Not in Our Schools (NIOS) week, the Associated Student Body (ASB) took care in this year’s planning, producing a successful revamp.
“We planned a bunch of activities for people to do on the quad at lunch to raise awareness to end bullying and to try and create a more accepting culture here at Paly,” sophomore vice president and next year’s ASB vice president elect Reid Walters said.
Following the class and executive officers’ elections, the application process for appointed officers — Social, Spirit, Sports and Multicultural Commissioners, Palo Alto Unified School District Board Representative, School Site Council Representatives — began and decisions will be released on April 25.
“Coming up, we have powder puff, which I think a lot of people on campus really enjoy and are getting really excited for,” Walters said.
The highly anticipated Paly tradition of powder puff football will begin on April 30 and the annual Field Day will conclude the year’s activities on May 16.
