    • Try to make information about clubs, sports, and extracurriculars as accessible as possible to our class. Telling our council about dates and giving them photos to publicize helps reach everyone and shows the vast amount of options Uni has to offer for every student.

    • Start asking our council if they can ask their teachers about making announcements at the beginning of the class period. It gives the information directly to freshman and opens up certain events and activities that students may not have heard of or seen.

     

    GOALS TO MAKE UNI A BETTER PLACE

    • Make uni a better place for students by making everyone feel welcome and that they have a place somewhere.

    • Make students want to get involved in many activities from clubs, to drama productions and make their High School experience memorable

    • Make the freshman class feel safe and feel that Uni is not just a stressful environment where academics consume everyone’s entire life. We plan to attempt to relieve some of the stress and help the student body when they are in need.

    • Make Uni a better place for student and staff by showing how much we appreciate everyone on campus and how small actions can lead to big impact, or how small gestures of kindness can change someone’s day.
