Attention Class of 2023! Class advisor Mr.Miller and class president Lily Bucchi, met with Eagle Eye for an interview about the information on upcoming events and news for our class!
The plans for the future look bright! For the rest of this year, Lily and the class officers will be holding fundraisers and they need our help!
Lily said, “We really need to do fundraisers to help raise money, and we also want to do merch. That’s our big one right now. We are also doing a lot of planning for the junior prom.”
This past week, some of the juniors met after school in the fifth floor hallway to decorate. This helps raise money for our class and the hallway looks great! They want thank everyone who came to help, but are hoping to get more of a turn out at the next fundraiser.
Mr. Miller says, “The rest of this school year will be the matter of collecting dues and trying to get fundraisers in. We have a lot of events planned for senior year, but the main event for this year is prom.”
Mr.Miller and Lily made it clear that paying your class dues should be of the highest priority. You can submit your dues directly to Mr. Miller in room 506. You are required to pay $25 every school year. This is a way to raise money for your class and helps pay for prom, field trips, and soon to be Class of 2023 merch!
Mr. Miller and the Officers will need this money very soon to start paying for activities that we all love. But, in order to take part in these activities, your class dues must be up to date.
Mr. Miller says, “Wethersfield does not keep the class dues, all of the money that’s left behind stays with the class, so class dues are really for the class. This money is then used for reunions.”
One of Mr. Miller's goals is to try and make all of the senior year activities cost free, aside from prom tickets.
We have our first ever prom coming up in approximately 6 months! Our Junior prom will be held April 30, 2022 at the Glastonbury Country Club. Get excited!
Please make sure your class dues are paid. Tickets will be on sale in the Spring. Prom tickets and class dues are seperate, you must pay for the prom ticket as well as your class dues in order to attend.
How are the class officers helping Mr.Miller?
Our class officers do a lot for us! They plan fundraisers, activities and most importantly advocate for us! Mr. Miller does a lot for us as well, but he could not do it without the help of our officers!
Mr.Miller says, “This is now the 10th or 11th year that I've done this, I try to be more hands off because it's the students class, so if things are going to get done, it's the students responsibility to get them done.” Our class officers do so much for us and e need to thank them!
Elections took place on Tuesday, Oct 12, in your WeConnect period!
Our class officers for this year are:
President: Lily Bucchi
Vice President: Kayla Shafman
Secretary: Lian Dunn
Treasurer: Hailey Lopez
