What is ASB?

ASB stands for Associated Student Body and it represents the interests and goals of Orange High School’s student Body. Students in ASB are the leaders and decision makers for our school. Students who enroll in ASB do so because they know that a positive atmosphere during the school day where students feel wanted and accepted is critical to their success. To that end, the officers and appointed members of the ASB class focus on providing engaging activities that ensure a well-rounded high school experience. Students in ASB plan, organize, and participate in such activities as formal and informal dances, Homecoming, Prom, Spirit Weeks, assemblies, competitions, and community awareness projects like the Penny Drive, cultural events, and staff recognition throughout the year. In addition, they oversee all the expenditures of athletics and clubs.

Why do I need an ASB card? 

Every school year during registration, students are required to get a photo ID card. You will use this ID card for checking out textbooks and verifying who you are throughout the school year. This ID card also allows you to attend OHS events at the full admission price. When you pay the fee for the ASB card, you are actually getting "ASB" stamped on your student ID card instead of a stand-alone card. When you attend a OHS event, whether it is a dance or say... a football game, you show your ID card to the ticket takers at the event. They see the ASB logo and discount a % off the admission price. You can also get discounted tickets in advance of the actual event date when ASB announces event tickets going on sale. 

What does it take to be on ASB?

ASB members must be leaders. The qualities of a good leader include honesty, trustworthiness, responsibility, reliability, willingness to work hard, humility, respect for both adults and fellow students, and school pride. You must have at least a 2.5 GPA, be in good academic standing, and maintain high academic and personal standards, both on and off campus.
 

How do I find out more?

To find out about ASB’s roles and functions, getting into ASB, or getting involved at Orange High School, ask someone who is in ASB or ask Ms. Morita. Feel free to come by the Student Center next to room 602 before school, during nutrition or lunch, or after school to see how we function as well.
