The current 8th-10th grade can apply for a Class Representative position and 4 will be chosen from each grade. They will be chosen based on their interview. Their interview will be based on how they answer the questions from their application, as well as their resume. There will be a workshop for how to make a resume and cover letter during both JH and SH lunch next Tuesday the 16th and Thursday the 18th. Current juniors are the only ones who will be allowed to apply for the following positions: President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Public Relations Director. More information about these positions is on the grade level Google Classroom page. If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Cortez ([email protected]).
