MLC’s student union had their first meeting in December. Starting with 3 members we have grown to about 10, with more members each meeting. We are working on reaching out to all highschool students at our school to give them a good place to talk about issues at our school and across the district as well as student run ways to solve these problems. Our group has talked about how our schools lack of funding has led to the cutting of important mlc traditions, like the all highschool trip. We have also talked about how we can make MLC the most accepting community we can by considering things like gender neutral bathrooms. The MLC student union branch is very aware of its unique position as a k-12 school and wants to involve and help the whole community in what we do.
