Many people have experienced the disheartening event of going to use the bathroom, tugging at the door and then realizing they can’t get in because it’s locked.
As most have come to learn the U hall, F hall and a few other bathrooms around campus have been locked throughout the day.
While it is hard to say exactly what is been going on in each bathrooms there are a few theories.
Using the school bathrooms as a meeting place to smoke, or do drugs, or graffiti, or just get out of class with friends is not uncommon at Carlmont.
After 49 interviews and some tough decisions by the old and new executive boards, the 2013-14 Associated Student Body class was chosen. There were a total of 12 new commissioners picked to be in ASB.
Many of the new commissioners are excited to enter into the class. Get to know a few of your new commissioners:
Emma Lin – Publicity-Class of 2015
-”I’m excited to be more involved in school and I love making posters.”
-Scared of snails
Andrew Wach – Dance – Class of 2015
-”I have a lot of great ideas that I would love to share and spread around school.”
Lisa Gleaton beamed brightly as she was announced to be the new principal of Carlmont High School.
As Jim Lianides, Superintendent of Sequoia Union High School District, proclaimed Ms. Gleaton as the principal, he said “it was very obvious to us that Lisa is capable of taking Carlmont forward with her vision and leadership skills.”
The board voted Gleaton to be principal in a “unanimous vote,” confirmed board president Chris Thomsen.
Gleaton was chosen out of a pool of 45 applicants. All of the applicants first went through an intensive interview process where they were interviewed by 12 Sequoia staff members and parents.
Throughout Carlmont, many people have been taught that the two hardest classes in the school are AP Biology and AP U.S. History.
Although these classes are extremely difficult for most students, many students believe that these two classes are among a group of extremely challenging classes, but it would be unfair so say that they are the two hardest classes.
Junior Stefan Dismond said, “I think that people commonly confuse things that are time consuming and things that are hard.”
Some classes are more time consuming and require the students to complete a lot of homework, where others require for the students to complete less homework as long as the students understand the concepts.
Carlmont’s Distributive Education Club of America (DECA club) hosted their first prom fashion show on March 15. The proceeds of the show went to the club and Make-A-Wish Foundation.
The show featured dresses and tuxes from Paper & Petals, B Chic Fashions, Glamor Niche, and Men’s Wearhouse. The dresses ranged from high-low dresses to form fitting dresses.
The show highlighted Carlmont students as models, student DJ’s Teva Kohavi and Ryan Pau, performances by Vasily Provatakis and The Illuminators, and free giveaways.
Prom season is almost in full swing at Carlmont: along with it comes the discussion of dresses, makeup, and creative ways that people get asked to prom.
This year, Carlmont ASB has decided to introduce a new incentive to think of a creative way to ask a date to prom: a prom competition.
“We decided to do a prom competition because, for the past few years, people have been really into asking their dates in cute ways, and we thought it was a clever way to encourage people to have fun and go to prom,” said Monica Chin.
The Associated Student Body commissioner meeting was held March 5 to inform students who were interested in joining ASB.
Reggie Chatman, next year’s ASB class president led the meeting along with Andrew Jung and Claire Noemer, next year’s ASB vice presidents.
The meeting was held in room A-8 during lunch. The room was filled with many people who were interested in participating in the class.
“[ASB] is the best place where you learn a lot and get the most responsibility,” said Noemer.
To join ASB, students must fill out an application and interview to be considered for the class.
Introducing the Carlmont Dance show emcees for 2013.
Junior Reggie Chatman was elected for next year’s Associated Student Body president on Feb 26., 2013.
His competition for ASB president was Claire Porter, who is the current junior class vice president.
Chatman commented, “I think it was very close and that it was a hard fought battle. I’m just glad that I came out on top.”
Chatman has been involved in student government since he was in third grade. He was student body president in middle school and elementary school and he has also been class president since freshmen year.
