Junior class seeks to raise funds for Hollywood Bowl graduation

The class of 2013 will be able to graduate at the Hollywood Bowl this year. The graduation for the class of 2014, however, is currently uncertain due to a lack of funding and student participation. “It’s very difficult, but we’re looking into different sources like sponsors, activities, dances…we’re also going to have a pie throwing contest at the All School Fair,” said Junior Vice President Barrina Thompson. Sponsors and fundraisers like those in years past now seem like luxuries, as the juniors are currently left to their own devices. It’s a sink or float situation, and the junior class has yet to put on their floaties. Some would say that it is simply because the juniors are oblivious to the fact that it is their responsibility, and others would say that it’s just a lack of communication. Despite the conflicts, the staff remains hopeful. “I feel that it is important for the junior class to come together and organize themselves so they can plan very successful fundraisers,” said Principal Alejandra Sanchez. “I am very sure they have the talent, dedication, and commitment to make the graduation at the Hollywood Bowl a reality for next year.” “We’re trying to reach out to different SLCs who don’t get enough attention,” said Thompson. “We’re trying to get get everybody to come to the meetings on Wednesdays at lunch so everybody can have their voices heard.”
