The Spring Fling Assembly on Friday, May 3 began after the Spartan Singers performed “The Star Spangled Banner” in the SHS gymnasium. Sophomore and Student Council member Isaac Domitrovich watched as his peers were pit against each other in games like Hungry Hungry Hippos, the Food Relay, the Scavenger Hunt, and Tug of War.

“We tried to switch it up from our regular games we do, like the ones we did during Homecoming and Snow Week. I think the games got a lot of people involved and excited for future assemblies,” Domitrovich said.

As in times past, the assembly was mostly hosted by seniors in Student Council. This year, however, most of the work was done by juniors and other younger members. As this was the last assembly the seniors would host, they wanted to prepare the underclassmen to handle future events on their own.

“Our role was basically getting the script together, setting up the games, and helping out with everything that needed to be set up for the assembly. They left most of it in our hands,” Domitrovich said.

While there were a few difficulties the underclassmen ran into when trying to figure things out alone, there were still a lot of things they were able to take away from the hands-on experience.

“I learned a lot about leadership. You have to have… leadership skills in Student Council if you want to get things done,” Domitrovich said. “It was definitely stressful at times, but working together with my other classmates and upperclassmen really helped.”

While the assembly is one of the bigger events they put on, Student Council also oversees events like lunch activities, daily dress days, and a few after-school events. These are organized in hopes of bringing students together at SHS.

“We all just want to make the school a fun place to be with the events we put on,” Domitrovich said. “Next year, we’ll be doing the same thing: trying to get people involved and creating connections between people of all grades here at the school.”
