Fallbrook Union High School is busy as ever. In January, new ASB officers were elected and ever since they have been working hard to make this year one which will be remembered for a long time.
The new officers are: Wade Colburn, president; Rebecca Prentiss, vice president; Hilary Erbland, treasurer; Tori Kessel, secretary; Johnna Vande Vegte, pep rally commissioner; and Ashley Stalnaker, activities commissioner. Many other ASB offices were also filled.
The first event for these new officers was the blood drive which occurred on February 11. This event was a huge success as the students saved many lives.
The next event was the Spring Open House. At this event, the high school showcased their various courses as well as the plethora of extracurricular activities. ASB sold spirit wear and answered questions while Jazz Band played and many other clubs like APIC and Key Club had booths. The Open House was a huge success as many eighth-graders came to experience Warrior Pride.
The next event was the Techno Dance, which took place on February 27, by the Asian Pacific Islander Club. This dance, which was highly attended, was unique to the high school because we have not had clubs host dances in the past.
On March 4, a Sadie Hawkins and Battle of the Genders Fashion Show took place as well as the first Fallbrook Idol. The Idol competition consisted of five finalists singing and being judged in preparation for the North County Idol. Two students, Aisha Lund and Alexis Stevens, were chosen to represent Fallbrook High at La Costa Canyon for the North County Idol.
Following the Idol competition, many students walked the runway showcasing possible outfits for Battle of the Genders week. Battle of the Genders is a week where guys compete against girls through dressing up and through competition. Monday was Lumber-Jack and -Jane Day; students wore plaid and anything else associated with lumberjacks.
On Tuesday, it was Let’s Get Physical Day, which consisted of wearing either ’80s workout clothing or anything related to physical activity. Wednesday was Barbie and Ken Day and Thursday was Go Green Day, which meant you could wear green, tie-dye or something recyclable.
Finally, Friday was Pink and Blue Day, which means all guys wore blue and all girls wore pink. Friday was also the annual Battle of the Genders Pep Rally, which was an impressive show. Finally, on Saturday, March 14, was Sadie Hawkins. The theme for this year was Island Fever, with students in their best beach attire. As you can see the high school and the ASB has been filled with activity and hard work.
Some upcoming events include: Prom Expo March 27, Every 15 Minutes April 1, blood drive April 8, Star Testing April 22-May 1 and Prom May 2. Remember to check out the Fallbrook High Web site, http://www.fallbrookhs.org, for further updates on activities.
