Pegasus ASB Election
After two weeks of campaigning, Pegasus California School’s first ASB election has finally finished.
ASB stands for Associated Student Body, which is presented in most public and private K-12 school systems across the United States, Canada, Australia and Asia. ASB also helps share students’ ideas, interests, and concerns with teachers and school principals. They often also help raise funds for school-wide activities, including social events, or community projects. (ASB Bank)
Procedures for ASB election
①Headmaster Mr. Owen posted all ASB positions. Candidates who are interested in those positions wrote emails to Mr. Owen briefly introducing themselves with no more than 20 words.
②Candidates delivered a 3-minute election campaign, emphasizing their advantages or unique qualities. Some of them stressed their leadership ability, addressed their future plans, or promised they would make big contributions to school. It seems that students have made a big improvement in their oral English during one month of study, since they all spoke with comfort and confidence.
③During the election campaign, candidates put up their posters in every corner of the campus, such as the hallways, library, dormitory walls, and classroom doors. The whole school was filled with an intense election atmosphere.
④After a week of campaigning, students voted on Friday. Mr. Owen counted the ballots and released the results.
Words from ASB Election Winners
I think it is very beneficial for me. I feel unprecedentedly nervous, because I have to cooperate with my competitors to some degree. It is such a unique experience for me, and I will try to apply what I’ve learned to my daily study. ——Eric Zhang
Undoubtedly, with our ASB, with our awesome team members, Pegasus will be better and better. 2016-2017 is the year for change, with me.——Jerry Zhang
