LASC meets Senior Beta

By Caely Hibbits

A Levy Advisory Student Council (LASC) meeting was held in Chiefland Tuesday, April 22. A few school board members showed up as well as a few students from Cedar Key Student Government: President Jaclyn Stefani, Vice President Michelle DiMaggio, Jordan Watson, and Caely Hibbits. Williston, Bronson, and of course Chiefland also attended. This meeting is held four times a year. The representatives get together and decide on things to improve the schools.

At the beginning of the April 22 meeting each school presented the projects their Student Government Association (SGA) was active in during the 2007-2008 school year, also discussing their schools recommendations and commendations. After this the students ate lunch and participated in a service project, which is held at all of these meetings. Cedar Key was not able to attend the service project due to the Cedar Key Sr. Beta Induction.

All members that attend the LASC meeting were either in Senior Beta or getting inducted into Sr. Beta and had to be back by 2:30. The Sr. Beta induction was a success. All three inductees and all but one inductor were able to attend and many parents showed up. They were told the qualities of a beta member and then the new and old members recited the Sr. Beta pledge. After the induction, everyone enjoyed cake and punch. The induction was held during Beta week and to celebrate Sr. Beta sold ice cream and organized hat day.

Yearbooks arriving

By Caely Hibbits

The Cedar Key Yearbook is scheduled to arrive next week and will be delivered on Friday, May 9, after lunches. The school did not order many extra yearbooks so if you plan to buy one, it is recommended you purchase one as soon as possible; they will go fast.

Also, those that paid $20 at the beginning of the year will need to pay the remaining $20 in order to get their book.
