Hello, my name is Bailey Vallee, I attend Bellingham High School in Bellingham. I am currently a junior, and serve as the Communications Director in the executive branch of ASB. I recently realized the weight of this position as it was Homecoming week two weeks ago. I never thought it would be so hard to organize two assemblies, a spirited game, a dance or even finding four plungers for our relay race. When I arrived at the game, I was worried the spirit of the students would be at an all-time low considering the fact we hadn’t won a game all season but our fans cheered like we hadn’t lost a game in the last five years. At the end of the week I was tired, but nonetheless more proud than ever to be a Raider. Not only was everyone spirited but also eager to help the community. This became evident when we, the juniors (my class), brought in two, five gallon buckets of pennies and put twenty dollars in the other classes'. I’m proud to say we won that part of the homecoming competition. Although we didn’t win the whole week, we also won hall decorations, which we worked so hard on! The overall theme of the week was "Pixar", and our class chose A Bug’s Life and let me just tell you as you walked through the hall at the end of the week, you felt like an ant crawling around. Mission accomplished.

This last weekend my schools DECA club went to the Fall Leadership Conference to kick off the year. I just joined the club a month ago with seven friends. We got to spend Sunday, Monday and Tuesday in Bellevue going to business breakout sessions, learning about different tactics to becoming a successful business person. At the end of the trip we had to practice doing a mock competition, and our whole team was freaking out. We had to present a solution for a problem that may occur in a business and then present our ideas in front of the “president”. None of us knew what to expect but I don’t know what we were worried about, everyone in our Chapter is amazing. And after some training and practices after school, we should become professionals. Can’t wait to see what the future holds for us!

Our girls’ soccer team made it to districts this week, and need to win two games in a row to go to state. They have a lot of passion for what they do and the whole team is quite spunky. I know they will do well whether they win or not. My friend EJ and his partner made it to state for boys’ tennis, altogether the Raider boys were undefeated and district champs! I can’t wait for the spring state tournament! As I mentioned before, the football team hasn’t won a game and two weeks after the homecoming game still haven’t won, and the season is over. But we still love them and are so proud they never gave up.
