As the school year progresses, the junior class, along with ASB, strives to create more connections among students.

The current junior class leaders have been planning and preparing for the “Juniorfest,” a mini-festival during which juniors could hang out and bond with each other.

“It’s a day for the junior class where everyone, regardless of club or group affiliation, can attend and have fun,” said Joe Sison, the junior class president.

The junior class and ASB’s goal for the festival is to bring the students closer, involving different groups and clubs from all over the school. During the festival itself, students will listen to live music, hang out with friends, and enjoy food.

“We want to emphasize that this year’s theme is connections,” said Sison. “We want students to form and establish connections with those around them.”

The tickets have been on sale during lunch since Sept. 19. Some of the students reserved their tickets during the junior class meeting, while others would have to buy their tickets during lunch.

“The park where the ‘Juniorfest’ is going to take place has a limited capacity, so we are only selling 50 tickets,” said Isabella Mattioli, a member of the ASB.

However, many of the students, including juniors, were not aware that the Juniorfest was happening.

“I haven’t heard of it, but I would attend the Juniorfest because it allows you to socialize and meet new people there,” said Aekash Singh, a junior.

The organizers and coordinators of the Juniorfest relied primarily on social media to promote the festival.

“The hardest part is reaching out to the students,” Sison said. “Lunch would be the easiest but everyone is too busy with clubs and other school stuff.”

The Juniorfest is one of the first events of this magnitude that has been planned and executed by the ASB students.

“This year’s junior class is the first to do something like this,” said Jim Kelly, the ASB coordinator.

The junior class and the ASB are working toward further emphasizing the theme of connection among students and peers.

“Our goal is to reach out to different groups on campus,” Sison said. “Carlmont’s identity is made up of everyone, not just the popular clubs and groups.”
