Student Council President Katie Browning and the other officers held Lead Day Tuesday November 7, an eventy Student Council holds each year.
“The purpose of lead day is to make students more aware of their surroundings and teach them how to be a better leader and how to help others,” Browning said.
Students Council members and other leaders around the school are split into four teams to play games, the blue team, yellow team, green team, and white team. The blue team was led by junior Max Skolnik and senior Madalyn Clark, the green team was led by seniors Helainah Baran and Olivia Simpson, the white team was led by senior Brooke Madgwik and junior Matthew Trusewicz, and the yellow team was led by junior Emma Rankine and senior Noah Mac.
“I really liked how involved and laid back everyone was. I felt like I could talk to everyone very easily,” Skolnik said.
The leaders were impressed with how involved their teams were and how much fun they were having during the games.
“Everyone in my group was just super enthusiastic and open minded to the activities we were doing,” Rankine said.
The games included a blindfolded obstacle course, untying a human knot, and ship captain to name a few. There were also some brain teasers like arranging an order of steps if you were in an earthquake and arranging personal traits on cards to find out what kind of person you are.
The teams also made posters starting with “I want to live in a world where…” and banners saying “We believe” and each team shared their ideas aloud with other groups.
“I loved seeing the facial expressions when they played a game or the variety of people who came. We continue to do it every year because we feel it brings all grades closer together” Browning said.
