The ASB is the student government. The ASB addresses campus concerns as they arise, promotes school unity, contributes to school spirit and pride, and assists the school whenever it can. The ASB officers are elected in the spring of each year for the following year. Student government officers are the President, Vice-President, Treasurer, and Social Activities Coordinator. Further, there are two class representatives and a spirit captain from each class that are also elected in the spring that serve on the ASB. These representatives serve as advocates for their class as well as participate in the running of the ASB as a whole. The senior spirit captain is the only spirit representative that regularly attends ASB meetings, although spirit representatives from other grade levels may be asked to attend when needed.
