From football games to dances, the new freshman class has yet to experience the essence of Carlmont’s student spirit.

In the hopes of engaging new students, ASB held a freshman class meeting last Friday that was aimed to discuss upcoming events and student involvement.

Freshman Class President Jono Sison said, “With ASB’s new focus on freshman involvement, the class meetings serve as an opportunity for our freshman class to bond and form relationships early on in the year, as well as informing students about upcoming events.”

One event that ASB is currently holding in order to spark freshman involvement is Powder Puff Football, an all-girl flag football team with an all-boy cheerleading team; this event is open to all grades. Sign-ups are available in the ASB room at lunch throughout this week.

Student involvement is a focus that ASB really values, and we feel it is our responsibility to provide students with opportunities to get involved.”

Kai Leigh Roach, a freshman, said, “When I went to the freshman class meeting, my first impression of Carlmont and ASB was that they have extremely engaging activities for students to get involved in. My favorite activity so far would be Powder Puff because it seems really inclusive, and I love how it is a spin on normal Carlmont football.”

Additionally, ASB introduced the freshmen to Screamin’ Scots, Carlmont’s student-run cheer section that plays a fundamental role in Carlmont’s sporting events.

Maya Blodgett, a freshman, said, “There are so many benefits of having school spirit. One is getting involved in football games. Screamin’ Scots has definitely been one of the most inclusive and spirited events at Carlmont, as it allows the students to be super wild and voice their school spirit.”

Through these events, ASB aims to provide a memorable high school experience and an overall positive impression of Carlmont for the new freshman class.

Freshman Class Vice President Nate Hsich said, “Student involvement is a focus that ASB really values, and we feel it is our responsibility to provide students with opportunities to get involved. I guarantee that a student’s four years at Carlmont will be so much more enjoyable if they get involved in spirit activities.”

ASB continues to hold easily accessible events, allowing every student to have an opportunity to become more involved in school spirit.

“Freshman year is arguably one of the most important years in high school, as it is when students adapt to the atmosphere of a new school,” Sison said. “School spirit creates memories for students to carry throughout their entire life. One of ASB’s main missions this year is to allow the new students to bond and to not be afraid to get involved.”
