ASB plans ahead for its many events

Annual blood drive, club visits and new winter dance among ASB’s remaining goals for the rest of Paly’s first semester


Palo Alto High School has once again seen a very successful Spirit Week. This year ASB spirit commissioners experimented with new events and also altered the spirit dance to include more people.

The seniors were victorious in a very close race against the juniors, and the sophomores and freshmen followed behind.

According to ASB Vice President Reid Walters, the student government is debriefing the homecoming dance and is starting to plan the winter dance.

Walters said that ASB doesn’t yet have an idea as to what the theme of the upcoming winter dance is going to be; however, she said that ASB’s main goal is to create a dance which will be able to cater to the entire student body of Paly.

“We are going to try to do a survey before we decide the theme to get everybody’s input,” Walters said.

Additionally, ASB has planned many club visits that are set to take place throughout the semester. Because officers in ASB want to make sure that clubs are active, they are planning to check in on each of the clubs.

The annual blood drive is also coming up and will take place on Dec. 5. The blood drive is hosted by the American Red Cross and will be located in the Social Studies Resource Center (SSRC).

ASB has also decided to once again fund food during finals week in the library and will provide post-finals cookies and cocoa, which will take place on Dec. 19.
