STUDENT ACTIVITIES: student government retreat

The Prep's 41 student leaders and five ASB advisors traveled to Palomar Mountain (just north of San Diego, outside of Temecula) for a two night, three day retreat August 22-24. This annual retreat provides an opportunity for student leaders to bond, get valuable training, and plan events for the upcoming school year.

The first night of this annual retreat always includes a challenging but fun night hike. Mr. June Yoon, Junior Class Advisor, led us through the dark night as an opportunity to think about the year ahead, get outside our comfort zone, and provide support to one another as we endured this challenge.

We spent our days in meetings to plan the 2010 Homecoming & Spirit Week theme and activities, coordinating back-to-school activities, and setting goals for the upcoming year - oh, and we had a little bit of fun doing team building activities, too!

We were thrilled to have our Prep leadership team join us for our second night of the retreat to hear about our goals and plans for the upcoming year. It was also a great opportunity to meet the Prep's new Dean of Students, Mr. Kiki Mendoza.

The highlight of the ASB retreat was once again our campfire, held on the last night. The campfire provides time for us to enjoy s'mores and each other's company, and to get to know one another on a deeper level.

The 2010-11 ASB officers and advisors can't wait for the new school year to start, and know it's going to be the best year yet at the Prep! Go Huskies!
