Washougal Associated Student Body reimagines school events

The Columbian

WASHOUGAL — Without events like pep assemblies, work parties and other school events, the Washougal High School Associated Student Body leaders are working to reunite classmates in a new way. The members put out a survey before the school year started and are using it to guide any work being done. Students in the Associated Student Body split into three groups. Using the collected data, they are each assigned a different area of concern. “Students will need to be able to explain how each project will help WHS students and staff feel connected, grow as an individual, and continue to be well whether that is mentally or physically,” club adviser Kyla Ritchey said. “While projects have not been determined yet, there are a lot of great ideas being thrown around right now.” The group is working on ways to celebrate virtual spirit weeks, a kindness week and socially distant events, such as reimagining plans for the annual Stuff the Bus food drive. “Our role as ASB, especially for the younger grades, is to help them keep in mind that they will be getting back to class,” said Associated Student Body senior senator, Briahna Ruth. “There are still good things to look forward to.”
