Movie Night; A Good Example of ASB Lead Events

This past Monday, the day before Halloween, ASB hosted a movie night at the school where they projected Nightmare Before Christmas. When it comes to most ASB events such as pep rallies, spirit weeks, and other after school events, there’s a lot of pushback from the student body. Whether this is about the lackluster spirit day themes, or the subpar games or presentation of the pep rallies, and so on. I’m not excluding myself from these criticisms, but this past movie night is (in my opinion) exempt from such flak.

The movie is a classic for both the Halloween and Christmas season, it was nice outside, and clubs had the chance to fundraise for themselves by selling food and drinks. Sure, the blankets we sat on couldn’t make the concrete any less hard than it is. And yeah, the food was ridiculously expensive. But it was nice to have a place where my friends and myself could hangout and watch a classic movie and be greeted by all of our school friends as well. Overall, it was a pleasant experience for everyone and I look forward to the next events.

Things like this take a lot of effort, as do all the other events they plan, I’m sure. It’s really easy to criticize things that we have no part in planning. Many of my peers find the events that ASB hosts to be cringey. These same people often wonder why they themselves did not join ASB, as if they don’t have any say in what things like spirit week look like. 

You’ll find, though, that EVERYONE has a say in what goes on in ASB. There are QR codes scattered around the school with google forms IMPLORING the student body to give input on spirit week themes, songs to play at dances/ other events, movie night movies, and more. Not only that, but I am friends with many of the students in ASB and give them feedback which I clearly see is genuinely considered by the entire team. Literally anyone can go up to a member of ASB and say ¨it’d be cool if we had [so and so] included in [so and so]¨ and I can almost 100% guarantee that they’d at least discuss it among themselves. 

ASB is doing great for being (mostly) student-led. Seeing the decorations in the hallways that the ASB students come in and do on the weekend is always nice. The Halloween decorations in the 400 building really got me in the spirit. They don’t advertise those things, they just do it. It’s underappreciated and really endearing. 

Moving forward, I hope to see more appreciation for ASB alongside the criticism. Because while not everything they do is perfect, it’s almost always done with dedication and care from the team.
