Seven Days Until April 22
Posted in the hallways, on teacher’s whiteboards, and through various social media posts: “__ days until April 22.” So what is happening on April 22? Nobody knows except the student council, the administration, and their advisor, Mrs. Clayton. When confronted about April 22, the repeated reply is “Earth Day” or nothing at all. Although Earth Day is April 22, there has to be something more, right?
Amidst the mystery, speculation of what is happening on April 22 has been abundant. A survey of 103 students and faculty gave The Buzz feedback on Bonneville’s guesses about the unknown event. One of the most common responses was a party; some people specified ideas of a pizza party at lunch, a movie party, a dance, or a game day. The party guesses usually came with the prediction of an assembly. Another frequent guess, or lack of a guess, was “idk.” A handful observed that April 22 marks the end of the student council campaign week and believe it has something to do with the elections. In conjunction with Earth Day, some guessed that there will be a school-wide clean up or an environmentally related project. A mental health or de-stress day was also suggested. A few students wished that there would be a half-day or no school.
Although most responses were positive, there were a few that were more negative. One student wrote, “I have heard it has nothing to do with food, which really disappoints me. I really have no idea. Everything exciting I can think of has to do with food.” Another recurring negative reply was that nothing is happening on April 22. They guessed that it will be a prank on the student body. While most responses had a matching group or pair, there were a few guesses that stood alone. Those guesses were “Easter,” “a big picnic,” “yearbooks arriving,” “something goofy,” “a bubble parade,” “prom,” and finally “mass chaos,” which is highly probable.
While waiting to find out what happens on April 22, here is a limerick written by junior Rebekah Grover that accurately describes the suspense created by Student Council:
There once was a student government,
Who held all the student body in puzzlement.
They were very tight-lipped,
From the students' mouths sighs slipped.
For they knew not what would happen on April 22nd.
