"Maintaining Tiger Pride" by Antonio Hernandez, Stadium HS

Antonio Hernandez
Stadium High School, Class of 2021
I believe that it is safe to say that this school year has not been a very eventful one for the staff and students to reflect upon lightly. The norm has been flipped upside down and twirled into numerous circles. With being ASB president this year for Stadium high school I have been assigned with the extreme task of doing all that I can to make this year somewhat normal for my peers. Throughout our numerous ASB meetings we would spend time going over ideas that we believed would get staff and students involved that could replace the traditions held at ‘The Castle’ (what we Stadium students call our school). With much brainstorming we were finally able to come up with multiple ideas that we could implement. With our main task being to try and connect people we felt it was appropriate to put together a virtual talent show, host a spirit week, have a tik-tok challenge, host virtual winter art competition, etc.

This year covid-19 has been a real test for student body government given that it is extremely difficult to keep students connected when in the virtual realm. However, with our social media presence we were able to get the word out for our virtual events and were able to receive student participation. Though, the level of participation for events in the start of the year were real low which inevitably led ASB to wonder what we could be doing to obtain more student participation and that resulted in us reaching out to our peers and asking them what they want/ need in such times. With this feedback we were able to formulate more specific activities (some listed earlier) which overall made for greater participation from the students.

The reason I chose to write about this is because I wanted to express the importance of community and connectivity. There were tons of roadblocks and moments where it felt as if what we are doing as an ASB didn’t matter and had little to no effect on the students, though, once we saw the good that it was doing even just for the select few it was a much-needed reminder of why we do what we do and that is to ensure peer connectivity throughout the Castle.

Some pros from this we have been able to come up with some virtual activities that we will be able to implement in the future that were a hit with the staff and students such as the Tik-Tok challenge and virtual Kahoot.

Now that we are back in person as of today, Monday, March 15th, 2021 ASB is doing all that we can to make the transition back to in person the best one yet. Especially for the freshman who have yet to walk the halls of The Castle.

In all, hopefully we will look back on this odd time and realize the importance and beauty of the small daily interactions we have with one another for covid-19 times have showed us the side we wish not to see within a tightly mingled society, and Stadium ASB will continue to do all that we can to ensure the happiness of our staff and students.
