Hey, Shaker Raiders! My name is Juliet Bellin Warren and I am the student body president for the 2012-2013 school year. Over the next few weeks, Student Council will be sharing our duties with the class of 2016. Thanks to everyone who participated in elections on Sept. 13, and we hope this new group of eager, driven, spirited and enthusiastic freshmen will help make our school great. Student Council will also be busy planning this year’s homecoming, which will occur Sept. 29, and the first spirit week! Keep your eyes open for posters telling you what to wear so we can all show off our Shaker spirit. Along with homecoming comes the homecoming parade, which will give Shaker’s clubs and organizations the opportunity to demonstrate their pride.
This year we hope to raise a lot of money for our school through many different forms of fundraising: bake sales, car washes, rake-a-thons, shovel-a-thons and more! We want to help fund our school’s activities and donate to important charities. We plan on increasing school spirit, making sure the school is aware of and participating in all school events, making new and improved events, expanding each club/organization and making sure that every student at Shaker Heights High School cares about his or her school. Raider Nation is a home to us; Student Council cares about it, and we hope every other student cares about it, too. Also, keep in mind that Student Council is open to any suggestions, so please feel free, safe and comfortable to share your ideas!
