Pumpkin Carving

Hello all, this is your Student Council president, Irene Georgiadis, and Treasurer, Madi Stevens, bringing you an update on the upcoming events hosted by Student Council. This Halloween, Thursday, October 31st, everyone is encouraged to wear a costume to school and to participate in the costume contest, which will be judged by faculty/staff. Great prizes will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd best costumes. Also on Halloween, you will have the opportunity to carve a pumpkin at home and bring it in and enter the Pumpkin Carving Contest for a chance to win even more prizes! Oh and did we mention everything is completely free? So you can dress up, carve a pumpkin, and potentially win awesome prizes, without paying a penny at school! So join in the fun, and be a little festive this year! It will be enjoyable for everyone, and make school a little more bearable! Until next time, stay classy Hopkins.

Then from October 21 to the 25 is national Ally Week.  According to GLSEN is “is a whole week where we can engage in a national dialogue about how everyone in and out of school can work to become better allies to LGBT youth. ”
