    Meeting Day/Time/Location: Monthly on a Tuesday at 7:45 am; dates will be on the student calendar

    Description: The purpose of Student Council is to provide leadership training and service opportunities in our school and community. Each 4th and 5th grade class will vote on one student to represent his/ her class for Student Council. We typically meet once a month before school (Tuesdays at 7:45) to discuss upcoming projects and events. Our meetings are mandatory, so students serving on Student Council cannot participate in other clubs or activities that meet on Tuesday mornings. Student Council representatives are leaders in our school and are actively involved in service projects and other activities that benefit our school and community. Each representative must exhibit excellent behavior in the classroom (an “S” in conduct and work habits) throughout the school year. Students running for Student Council are required to obtain parental permission. They are also asked to write and give a brief speech to their class, explaining why they would like to serve on Student Council.
