Nevis Student Council: ‘Money should never be a barrier’

Besides springing for movie tickets for all Nevis High School students, the student council also has plans for upcoming media updates and a winter school spirit week.

The Nevis School Student Council decided Dec. 21 to pay for all students in grades 9-12 to attend a movie at the Park Theatre.

“They believe money should never be a barrier for student activity day at Nevis,” said student council co-advisor Pete Phillips.

Phillips also reported that the student council:

  • Recently purchased a projector for the student body to use at large-group events.

  • Raised more than $1,000 for the Hubbard County Food Shelf and the Akeley Regional Community Center women’s shelter.

  • Plans to update students with a daily video message on screens around the school and an interactive calendar.

  • Provided extra recycling bins and signs in the school gymnasium.

The school’s Snow Days celebration will be Jan. 24-29, with dress-up days, crowning an 11th grade princess and prince, and a semi-formal dance with a live band. The student council plans to raffle off a chauffeured ride to and from the dance, Phillips said, with himself driving a fancy car on loan from a local dealership, dressed in tuxedo and tophat, rolling out a literal red carpet and holding an umbrella for the winning couple.
