MHS Student Gov Brings Seasonal Cheer
MHS Student Gov Brings Seasonal Cheer

The Minnetonka High School Student Government has been busy at work to make the holidays fun for students. As the weather got colder, all it took was a quick look around the high school and anyone could see how much time and effort had been invested to make the school vibrant and the atmosphere positive for the holidays.

Every Wednesday morning, Student Government planned seasonal events like Holiday Spirit Week, where high school students could wear clothes according to the theme for the day - such as wearing pajamas on Monday and ugly sweaters on Wednesday. A tree was also put up outside of the student government room and clubs could hang their own ornaments.

Erinn Fiedler, a sophomore representative in Student Government, added that, "We held holiday-themed activities the whole week, like frosting cookies in the Commons during lunch mods. We also had some Student Government members dress up to take pictures with people." She went on to explain how amazing it is to see so many other students participating in the fun. "Everyone was pretty enthusiastic about spirit week. We got a lot of people to dress up and we hope to get even more people to participate next year!"

Although the holidays and winter break are now over, Student Government is still working to make school more fun and engaging. They have already started to plan new events for students in the coming weeks, and will continue to keep working on projects to make their school and its students the best that it can be.
