Hapnot's student council hopes to make every day next week feel like Halloween. The entire school has been decorated, and special events and contests are planned throughout. Of special note, lumber for the pumpkin patch was graciously donated by Home Hardware. Each day next week, student council will be holding a Halloween bake sale. Students are asked to bring baking to the school on Monday, and house league points will be awarded for every dozen dainties brought. The Halloween dance will be held at the school on Wednesday, and the student council will be selling Ka-pow pops, candy apples and glow sticks. Students attending the dance are encouraged to wear a costume. Students can save a dollar on the price of admission by purchasing a ticket in advance. On Friday, there will be a classroom decorating contest. T.A. classrooms will be judged on Friday before noon, with the best dressed classroom winning a pizza party. In other Hapnot news, members of this year's student council are: Executive Rachele Leifso, co-president Matthew Ryan, co-president Julian Kolt, vice-president Nicole Leifso, secretary-treasurer Megan St. Hilaire, public relations director Brittany Brown, social director Heather Pauley, city council representative Grade Reps S4 - Jenni Jones and Andrew MacFarlane S3 - Kristen Gourlay, Megan Lewis, Stephanie Menzies and Chris Sweryda S2 - Courtney Kendall, Malarie Lycan and Mary Taylor S1 - Alessandro Strapazzon and Taylor Weseen Members of the student council also sit on four committees.
