“It’s Friday, Friday” — as Rebecca Black continues to remind us throughout the halls today in her hit song “Friday.”

Is this song stuck in your head yet? If not, then it will be soon enough.

The Student Council is sponsoring a musical fundraiser in which it will play “Friday” on repeat during the five-minute passing times every Friday.

The fundraiser starts today, Friday, March 22. It will continue through the end of April or until the Council reaches its goal of raising $500.

The Council wants to raise money so that it can continue putting on events, such as the homecoming dance, for upcoming school years, according to senior Halle Parish, Student Council treasurer.

The class that raises the most money during the fundraiser will get to keep the amount it raised to put toward events such as their class prom.

The idea for the fundraiser came from Grand Blanc schools, where it had great success, according to Mr. Mike Whalen, Student Council adviser.

Parish said she expects the fundraiser to be successful.

“My committee thought that this could be a super creative idea and something different,” Parish said. “It’s a quick, easy way to raise money. It’s meant to be a fun idea.”

By the end of the month, “Friday” will be the earworm that people just can’t shake.

Senior Class President Mickeely Dias said she expects people to participate out of annoyance as the song drones on.

“We all get sick of songs when they’re played on a loop,” Dias said. “People will end up paying to have (the music) shut off because no one wants to listen to the same song every Friday.”
