With SRT classes in this school currently competing in the school-wide Brain Game competition, Senate sponsor Michelle Foutz said she thinks it’s going well so far.

“There were a couple of issues with the rules—confusion about the rules—so we redid a round one competition with two SRTs… Students seem to be pretty enthusiastic about it, and it’s going well so far,” she said.

Senator and sophomore Edward Zhang said he agrees with Foutz.

“I think the SRTs really enjoy the Brain Game competition,” he said. “We try to model it as closely as possible to the actual Brain Game competition, and I think that’s been pretty popular with the student body.

Zhang, along with other senators, helped draft questions for the Brain Game tournament. He said his specialties included math and economics. According to Foutz, the final round of Brain Game will be broadcasted on CHTV video announcements during SRT on March 23. Senators have also been busy organizing appreciation weeks, specifically one for cafeteria workers here.

“It’s just a nice gesture to bring in some breakfast and to recognize the different staff groups in the school for all the things they do for students and teachers and everyone at this school, so I think (the appreciation weeks were) appreciated,” Foutz said.

According to Foutz, senators have also planned an activity for March Madness and a spring blood drive in April.
