Student Council

Students vote each year for a student council president and supporting officers, positions that carry real responsibility.

Two class representatives from first through fifth and sixth grade are chosen from each homeroom to serve on the student council. The Student Council officers lead announcements at the morning Triangle.

The student council organizes and implements student events. The council positions allow students to observe and learn qualities of leadership. All students are invited to take part in the activities and present new ideas.

The student council participates in community service projects and raises money to benefit those in need.
