Here's a wonderful wrap-up of last week's Wish Week activities from our ASB students at Beverly Hills High School:
"Wish Week is a designated week at Beverly Hills High School designed to raise school spirit and build school morale, while spreading awareness about the Make a Wish Foundation and raising funds to grant the wishes of children suffering from a life-threatening disorder.
The activities held during this year's Wish Week included "duct tape a teacher" - when Mr. Kobe was kind enough to let students duct-tape him to a wall! Next we had our basketball pep rally, where the boys varsity basketball team did a dance with the cheer squad to warm up for their game. Last Wednesday night both the boys and girls varsity basketball teams beat our rival school, Santa Monica High School, in nail-biting games. During halftime ASB and Service Learning students brought out our Wish Ambassador, Francine, to cheer in a routine in front of the entire student body who attended the game. Thursday we had our dodgeball tournament, and on Friday we handed out Diddy Riese cookies and Krispy Cream donuts and raised over $400 dollars in donations. To wrap up Wish Week, we held our third annual Talent Show here at BHHS, featuring entertainment and a Fat Burger truck with all proceeds going to the Make a Wish Foundation.
At the end of this extraordinary week, ASB and Service Learning students came together to exceed our goal of raising $10,000 - and we hope to exponentially increase that goal in years to come!
On behalf of ASB and Service Learning, we would like to thank the people who were really there when we needed them the most: Principal Mark Mead, Assistant Principal Christopher Regan, Director of ASB Jennifer Goolsby and Director of Service Learning Jaime Marrs. Many others also helped us accomplish this extraordinary mission, including our donors, our teachers and our amazing student body."
