Student Council is an organization of students dedicated to fostering school spirit and taking on responsibilities to enhance school functions and student life. Elected leaders gain responsibility, experience working as a team, increase school pride, and interact with fellow students. Each spring, students in grades 5-7 are eligible to run for officer positions. Campaign posters and speeches provide information to the student body. Voting takes place in May for the officer team of the following school year.
Students in grades 4-8 also elect their class representatives who attend meetings, learn more about student government, and commuicate proceedings back to their classmates.
