On March 6th, 2023, Student Council hosted a dodgeball tournament. To be part of this event students had to sign up by February 24th. Teams consisted of at least five players and had to have a minimum of two girls on their team. Teams also had to have a school appropriate team name. The teams paid $25 per team, each member paid $5. Students had to return money and sign up papers to Brandi Zavidal, Student Council Sponsor and EL Programming/ Instructional Coach, before February 24th to participate. There were 10 groups who signed up including a teacher team. For the past couple of years, the money from this tournament has been donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. This foundation grants wishes to children that are critically ill. The teacher team, named ”The Cobblestones,” won the tournament.

Mrs. Zavadil explained that, “The purpose is to have some fun before break and raise money for a great cause!” The Student Council has been holding the Dodgeball tournament for at least seven years. Mrs. Zavadil explained that, “I am not sure how long dodgeball has been a tradition in Student Council, because I have only been the sponsor for three years, but have been at SCHS for seven years and it has always happened, so at least seven years!” This event allows the Student Council members to be leaders in the school and teaches them to be responsible, have leadership, and school pride. To be part of the Student Council, at the beginning of the year, officers hold interviews for students intent in joining. If you want to be a member, listen to the announcements in the Fall and sign up for an interview.
