Joining WHS ASB and Class Council as a Freshman for 2020-2021

Joining Woodbridge High School ASB Student Leadership (Freshman Class President and Freshman Class Vice-President) and Freshman Class Council

This year, we are again going to hold interviews in the spring to appoint our Freshman Class President and our Freshman Class Vice-President, who will serve on both our 28-student ASB and on the Freshman Class Council. Through this interview process, we will also be appointing additional members of the Freshman Class Council.

There will be a MANDATORY MEETING at 8th Grade Family Night for all students interested in interviewing for Freshman Class President, Freshman Class Vice-President, and Freshman Class Council. You must attend the meeting to be considered for an interview; attendance will be taken.

Wednesday, April 15th, 5:30 p.m. via Zoom (link in the Google Classroom)

(You can still attend all of the 8th Grade Family Night activities after the meeting!)

Applicants must join the Google Classroom: information available at this link: tinyurl.com/woodbridgeasb. In the Google Classroom, you will find the application as well as information about teacher recommendations and interviews. You will be able to let us know on your application whether you are interested in being Freshman President/Vice-President or a Class Council Member, or if you’re interested in both options. Interviews will be held via zoom the week of April 20th in the afternoon. If you are not currently an IUSD student but you are interested, please email LaurenPrudhomme@iusd.org for more information.

What is ASB?

Freshman Class President and Freshman Class Vice-President will become members of Woodbridge ASB, or Associated Student Body. The Woodbridge ASB students (28 in total, ranging from 9th-12th grade, click here to read job descriptions of all ASB members) plan events to unify the school (such as Homecoming, pep rallies, dances), promote spirit across the campus (athletics, arts, academics), spread awareness of important issues (community service efforts, student wellbeing), and gain leadership experience while doing all of these things. ASB is a huge commitment that involves many hours after school and on weekends (click here to see a sample schedule of commitments outside of the school day during two of our busiest months). Since ASB members also have to be enrolled in the Leadership class, becoming Freshman Class President or Vice-President would also take up one of your class periods in your 8-period schedule. ASB members must reapply each year and/or run for election.

What is Class Council?

It’s a great way to immediately get involved at Woodbridge! Each class has a class council of 20 students and a teacher advisor, who represent their class. They are led by the Class President and the Class Vice-President. There are 18 Class Council members in addition to the two officers. Class council activities depend on each grade and include (but aren't limited to) fundraising, planning homecoming skits, planning prom, decorating pep rallies, dancing in the spring pep rally, and organizing grade t-shirt sales. Class council involves lunchtime meetings and some after school commitments, not a class period, so it’s a good way to get involved if you’re not ready yet to commit fully to ASB. Class council members must reapply each year and/or run for election.

If you have any questions about joining ASB or Class Council, please contact Woodbridge High School Activities Director, Mrs. Lauren Prudhomme, at LaurenPrudhomme@iusd.org or (949)936-7965.
