Middle School institutes primaries before election

By Daniel Rothberg

Administrators at the Middle School have instituted primary elections that will eliminate all but eight candidates for the general election.

Candidates running for class senator will give a speech before the primary. The remaining eight candidates will participate in a town hall class meeting.

“We hope to discourage those students who simply want to win a popularity contest,” seventh grade dean Colby Plath said.

Class representatives will also participate in a leadership class next year similar to the prefect council class, Plath said.
