DGS Student Board Member updates the board on school news

Senior Nahla Mokkath updates District 99 Board on school events.

On Sept. 11, DGS Student Board Representative senior Nahla Mokkath addressed and updated the board on events going on so far in the 2023-2024 school year.

Mokkath began her update by touching on curriculum night. She went on to explain how parents got to tour the school and see their children’s classes firsthand. Many parents also got to experience the popular places inside the school, such as the cafe.

“The parents just got to experience how students were, and they got to see how long these lines can be,” Mokkath said.

She continued her update by addressing Mustang Fury, an event where clubs got to showcase themselves and recruit new members. While explaining this event and the positive energy flowing through the commons, Mokkath had a smile on her face.

“All throughout you could see how energetic everybody was. Everyone was so ready to just include other people into their club and get as many members as they could,” Mokkath said.

Mokkath then went on to explain what each grade level has been doing during access. She informed the board that for the past two weeks freshmen have been taught by student leaders in order to learn new rules, where to get help and overall experience access for the first time.

Sophomores and juniors have had focus presentations about productivity. “Some of the lessons did help them, and they will try to use those and utilize them through the next semester,” Mokkath said.

Mokkath explained that seniors have been participating in senior focus, where seniors were updated on methods and tips on how to successfully start the post-high school planning process.

She ended her update by telling the board about this year’s homecoming theme, “Barbie,” and informed the board about some sports events that have occurred including football and tennis
