Anhviet Nguyen Opinion Column Issue 7


s I’m writing this column, the weather is not surprisingly dreary and gloomy.  Although I am not a meteorologist or pretend to be one, I continue to hope that the sun will stay for longer than a two-day stretch. May and June gives us the best chance of that.

May and June also mean that testing season is here. AP tests, SAT, EOCs, finals, etc. Good luck to everyone and soon enough, we will all be rewarded with some sunshine. If you don’t find sunshine to be a reward, I’m sure you’ll find another way to motivate yourself and get through the testing season.

Seniors, you’re almost there! Graduation is coming up soon. Prom is coming up soon. Those dates are quickly approaching and before you know it, the year will be over and you’ll be on with the rest of your lives.

After the long wait, class officer elections are on May 2. I’m pleased at how many people are interested in joining ASB and I think it’s a sign of good things to come.

Congratulations in advance to those who will be elected. Unfortunately, not every candidate who runs will receive a spot in ASB but don’t worry – it is not the end of the world as there are plenty of other ways to still be involved.

There are always things to do but you have to know what your passions are and where you want them to take you.

Just two weeks ago, the spring activities assembly took place, and the new Big 6 was introduced.

As with anything, there is room for improvement whether things run smoothly or completely fall apart. Following the assembly, we received notice that one of the sports videos was perceived to contain aspects that appeared abusive or humiliating.

We recognize that more careful judgment should have been used in the editing process. It is never our intention to condone acts of hazing or bullying and we never want to portray one of our sports teams in a negative light.

Thank you to whomever brought up the issue – it is a lesson learned.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns about anything, feel free to ask me.

Moving forward, ASB has its annual budget meeting coming up. This is a time when ASB deliberates and collaborates on how to distribute the funds for the upcoming school year’s extracurricular activities.

Lastly, I want to let you all know about a couple of fund raisers happening this weekend on May 5.

The Sports Booster Club is hosting a fund-raising drive with Harris Ford in the MTHS parking lot. Also, the PTSA is holding its spring bazaar in the HUB. Bring your friends and family to support MTHS.

These parents work extremely hard to raise funds for student activities.

Also, I promise that Lilianne Nguyen, next year’s ASB public relations coordinator, will make her debut in the Hawkeye soon enough.
