Why join the Student Council?
Students who join the student council will develop leadership skills, acquire responsibility, develop team building, promote school pride, and have a chance to interact with their peers. In the Student Council, members will manage their time during their monthly meetings, determine an agenda, write minutes, and communicate properly. This will allow the students to express their ideas and test their leadership skills. An excellent citizen is what society needs, and joining the Student Council will ultimately increase the chance for students to practice this attribute.
The Student Council is made up of 5th graders who are responsible for students serving as representatives for the school. Student Council representatives are involved in planning and organizing:
- School spirit week
- Community Outreach
- And more…
To join the Student Council, students MUST fill out an application and have it approved by a parent or guardian and your teacher. Students in 5th grade will start the application process after school starts in the fall to be considered by the Student Council for the following school year. Once applications are given to potential members, no late applications will be accepted. Members will be selected and will receive an acceptance letter from the sponsor. Once accepted, the student will attend the bi-monthly meetings .
Our Student Council is now in session. We meet every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month from 7:00 a.m.- 7:45a.m.
Student Council Officers meet every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month from 7:30 a.m.- 8:00 a.m.
