Becoming a Student Council Representative (Grades 2-8) is an important and serious obligation. The elected student serves as a direct representative for the entire class and, occasionally, the entire school, in relationship with the school administration, particularly the principal.
The existence of a student council teaches our students many things, including such principles as: decisions should be made only after considering the input of many people, students need and deserve a voice, and that every honor also requires responsibility.
Since the voice of the students is the elected student council representative, that student should be a leader and possess leadership qualities such as: honesty, integrity, enthusiasm, the ability to listen, perseverance, organizational skills, and above all, a desire to serve others. Student Council meetings are held after school once or twice per month.
