Student Council


The Student Council exists to serve Students.  It will only be as active, effective, and concerned as each student member is.  Student Council is the HEART of student involvement.  It's the most representative and powerful student organization, because it works for all students.  A good student council has students’ respect and support by opening its doors to all interested students and by being aware of student needs and opinions.  Cooperation is the key to getting things done.  The council shouldn't be a rubber stamp for any group, but it should work with others to solve problems.  Training and relevance are vital to the success of any student council.  Good leaders are developed, not born.  Informed voters help create them.  Leadership training is one goal of student council.  Your council can lead the way to positive change.  Its activities and projects are the testing ground for ideas, which become part of the school.
