Student Council

Student council is a group of students elected by peers to participate in designated areas of school government. Student council exist at the high school level. The council participates in the planning of school events. They also assist administration with events for the local community such as Community Life Line, Samaritan Inn or donation collections. The student council works with the school administration, parent organizations, and student body to decide on and approve projects and initiatives for the school, students, and community.

Student council members bring ideas, requests, and feedback to the meetings and a democratic process is used to give students a voice and make decisions in creating a year-long calendar. Students who participate in student councils, under the supervision of a teacher or administrator, learn about the democratic process, civic responsibility, leadership, problem solving, and teamwork.
