The first student council carnival in about two decades was a success.

The carnival, honoring the 50th anniversary of homecoming, raised over $1,500 to help fund school clubs, said Student Council Advisor Mr. Jeffrey Kusniez.

Student council put the event together in the school parking lot on a Thursday evening, October 8th, with help from the schools’ clubs. Booths included:

-a photo booth by the the Art Department, in which you take pictures with cutouts of the Pope, Kanye West, Harry Styles and others.

-a football toss from the Fellowship of Christian Athletes

-Plinko from the Post Prom Committee

-Ring Toss from The Cub

-a toilet paper toss from Student Council  

The Technology Student Association also sold drinks, hamburgers and hotdogs, and another group sold popcorn.

The carnival started out slow, but by the end of the first hour each game had a steady stream of participants. They included students, teachers, little kids and grandparents.

The carnival was a bigger hit than anticipated, Senior Student Council Representative Trevor Waldman, who was in charge of planning the carnival, said.

“We are proud of our clubs. Things went better than expected and can only improve from here,”.

When asked if the carnival would happen again, Mr. Kusniez answered with a promising, “Probably”.

The student council, the clubs, and the people who came to the carnival all helped make this a successful event, Junior Student Council Representative Katie Shell, who also helped plan the carnival, said.

“Thanks everyone for coming and thanks for helping.”
