On Friday, May 26th, Redwood will be hosting its Recognition BBQ to show appreciation for the students who are involved. This years BBQ will be different from previous years. Redwood is trying to recognize the kids who give their best effort instead of students who are just in a class and get a free lunch because of it.
Mahak Rajwani, ‘19, an ASB student, said, “This year’s BBQ has had much more thought and planning put into it. We hope to achieve a day where everyone feels like they have been recognized and all their efforts have been worth it!” Mahak said that one of the challenges are setting apart the students who put in effort and the kids who are doing the bare minimum. She also said, “It’s one of the ways we show how many cool parts there are to Redwood and how none of it would be possible without determined Rangers.”
Bryanna Martinez, ‘17, ASB president, said, “We want our student body to feel appreciated, but we want to make sure that we’re recognizing students who have gone above and beyond, not ones who are solely enrolled in a class.” Martinez also said that this year advisors and teachers will select students who deserve to be recognized instead of the whole class.
Mr. Miller, ASB advisor, said, “We don’t do it enough. I think it’s important to stop and say you matter and we appreciate you.” Miller also said that one of the biggest challenges is finding and inviting every student who is invited, which is almost half the school.
The BBQ will be during lunch in front of the school during lunch on Friday.
