The weekly student assembly meeting began with two budget requests.

The first request was from the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA), for a total of $2,880 for the fiscal year of 2018, from two club representatives. The budget requested would go mostly towards travel and food expenses for about six members of the club to Atlanta, Georgia, for the National Science Teachers Association Conference. The budget would also go towards community outreach with the club and local schools. The complete budget for NSTA was motioned to carry and granted.

The second budget request was from the Physical Education Club, requesting a total budget of $4,500. The PE Cub was granted a total of $1,120 to send members to a conference this year.

There is a Board of Trustees meeting Thurs. 19 to Fri. 20.

The committee also mentioned an open-forum event with Interim President Melinda Treadwell taking place from 6:00-7:00 p.m. on Nov. 15.

The committee also mentioned an opening for a 2018 representative spot, open to seniors.
