Student Council is a wonderful opportunity to act as a role model for other students and learn to be a leader. Council members share students’ ideas, interests and concerns with the teachers and principal. Being on Student Council allows council members to implement fun, new ideas and activities that the entire student body can enjoy, such as planning activities for National Red Ribbon Week, the middle school dance and selling Val-o-grams. The student council collects donations of toilet paper at Christmas for the Atkins Helping Hands Food Bank. An offsite field trip to the Mission of Hope Soup Kitchen is also planned. If you choose to run for Student Council and are elected, you must be prepared to do the following:
- Attend a monthly meeting. Meetings typically last 1 hour. Sometimes we will need to meet more than once a month.
- Participate and contribute to activities that may be held before, during and/or after school.
- Maintain passing grades and acceptable conduct each grading period.
Elections for student council are held in the fall each school year. Students will create campaign posters and address the student body with a short, 30-second speech explaining why he/she is running for student council.
