ollowing the start of the school year, members of the Associated Student Body have begun preparing events for the upcoming weeks, including a new monthly tradition of Pajama Days, and a spirit rally on Sept. 6.
This year, ASB is reserving the last day of each month for a Pajama Day in response to requests from students to host the previously annual event on a more frequent basis.
According to ASB President Pooja Akella, ASB encourages students to participate in Pajama Day by coming to school in comfortable apparel in an effort to reduce the stress levels.
“We wanted to implement a more frequent way for students to reduce their amount of stress in a fun way,” Akella said. “It’s our goal to make Pajama Day a monthly occurrence, and it will most likely be towards the end of each month.
Additionally, ASB is hosting its annual first spirit rally on Sept. 6 during lunch.
Though ASB has previously held the rally on the first Friday of each school year, in an effort to make it better allow the freshman class to become more accustomed to their school environment first, ASB has decided to push back the event.
In addition to this change, ASB will also be counting the events occurring during the traditional First Friday Spirit Rally for Spirit Week points this year, which will hopefully incentivize students to attend, according to Lin.
Junior ASB Spirit Commissioner Emma Lin said, “We wanted to make the rally more exciting for the freshman class to see, so we chose to push back the rally to make it the best it can be.”
