Student Council Plans Class Olympics

wrsc_website_banner_2Each November in the week leading up to Thanksgiving, the Woodland Regional Student Council holds their biggest events of the    year–Spirit Week and Homecoming.

After that week, the WRSC usually focuses on more service based activities and less on school spirit. However, this year that is about to change.

“The WRSC has been looking for a good way to continue  spirit activities throughout the year,” said WRSC advisor, Chris Tomlin.

In hopes to do this class of 2016 Senators, Mary Vlamis and Lindsay Rodorigo decided to hold a Class Olympics competition.

“Students from all grade levels will compete in trial rounds for six different competitions,” said Vlamis. “They have a choice of a Jenga competition, a free throw contest, a math contest, a spelling bee, a trivia contest and a visual art expression contest.”

After all the trials are completed the top boy and girl from each grade, and  in each category, will compete against each other during the last week of May.

“The finals will be held during advisory on May 28, 29 and 30th,” said Rodrigo. “The top boy and girl in each category will be honored with a medal and recognized at the annual ice cream social held in June.”

The WRSC hopes that the Olympics will be a good event to bring the student body together at the end of the school year and Tomlin said, “I’m hoping that the Olympics will become a new school tradition that encourages school spirit.”
