f the junior class were looking to have prom at Burger King, more would be interested in making money for a better venue. Working the election polls this coming June can help out the class of 2013.
Election polls are recruiting high school students to work the polls for the Presidential Primary on June 5. Students can earn up to $75 for working the polls. The class of 2013 currently has $801.00 in their account.
Mr. Blas, the junior class advisor, shared how raising money for our class is really important. However, it is also important because juniors are taking U.S history. One of the things they learn is government, the process of how we make decisions in the United States.
“It is important to learn that process from the ground, from where it all takes place. Voting is so important and if the junior class students had an opportunity of that, then maybe they'll want to take actual part in voting," said Blas.
This is an all day event starting from around 5:45 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Once you turn in your permission slip, The San Diego Registrar of Voters will assign you to a polling location. Students will then have to get an excuse out of class signed and a permission slip. Mr. Blas has committed to going around to each destination and bring food for the students since it will be a long day.
This unique fundraising opportunity got out through word of mouth, announcements, and a class meeting on Wednesday, March 21. Sheree Collins, Junior Class President, held a meeting informing juniors of this fundraiser.
"The class of 2009 raised around $2,000 during the 2008 Presidential Election," said Mr. Camacho, Class of 2009 Advisor.
“It is a good way to raise money and get involved with the community,” said Collins.
