Food Truck Fest | A celebration on the last day of school was held during P3 and 4 . Four different food trucks (Gotham Grill, Mexican Bowl, Funnel Cloud and A Perfect Scooop) offered delicious food for staff, students and the community. With music, face painting, and henna, everyone came out to share one last hoorah before the summer break.
Photos to come.
Bearcat Awards | Student Council was busy at work organizing links so their peers' voices could be heard. The student body had the opportunity to nominate a friend or classmate for "Best Dressed", "Best Smile", "Most Likely to Laugh at the Wrong Moment", "Most Likely to be a World Traveller", "Person you Woud Share a Deserted Island With", and "Best School Spirit". A student was chosen from each grade and the results were tallied for June 18, when a final assembly was held to honour the events that took place throughout the 2017-2018 school year.
Easter Egg Hunt | Who loves free chocolate? WE DO! Student Council members hid dozens of plastic eggs around the school in both obvious and concealed places. Throughout the day, students discovered the obscure hiding spots and returned the eggs for free chocolate before the Easter long weekend. The event was special because we not only got to see the smiles on our peers' faces but we also spread school spirit and built community within our school.
Valentine's Day Candy Grams | To spread love, friendship and happiness, Student Council organized an opportunity to share a small gift - Terra Cotta cookies - with their friends on Valentine's Day during P1 classes.
Exam Care Package | With the craziness of Final Performance Tasks and exams, Student Council created a small care package with pens, highlighters and candy to prepare and support their peers during the stressful time of year. You go, smartie pants!
Semi-Formal | All grades showed up to dance at the Winter Wonderland Semi-Formal. With blue and silver snowflakes, Christmas music and Christmas trees, students enjoyed their last evening with their friends before the break.
Bake Sale | In order to raise money for Semi-Formal and enhance school spirit, Student Council held a Bake Sale. With brownies, shortbread, gingerbread, rice crispies and cupcakes, the members filled their peers with Christmas Spirit.
Halton Finals | Once Student Council discovered the Senior Boys Volleyball team were playing at the Halton Finals, the members were eager to arrange a bus to Sheridan College in order to support their team. With a full bus, students went to cheer on their peers. Much to their delight, the boys won to continue on in the Golden Horseshoe Athletic Conference!
SOCKTOBER | Did you know that socks are one of the least donated items to shelters? That is why over the course of October, Acton High’s Student Council ran a "Socktober"! The event was to raise socks and other gently used garments to donate to an organization called "Straight to the Streets", which takes their donations straight to the homeless and people in need. With overwhelming success, 514 pairs of socks, as well as 157 items were raised! Thank you everyone for donating and participating in our fun, sock-themed spirit days!
Halloween | Student Council thought a costume contest would be a fun way to celebrate Halloween and build community. During P1, students came to cheer on their peers and teachers for the best group costume, best teacher costume, best duo costume, in honour of 2017 and most creative/DIY.
