Student Council

 

Student Council gives students the opportunity to develop leadership by organizing and carrying out school activities and service projects alongside peers and an advisor.  In addition to planning events that contribute to school spirit and community welfare, the Student Council is the voice of the student body.  They help share student ideas, interests and concerns with the school-wide community.


Meetings are based upon parliamentary procedures wherein ideas are presented, voted upon, and confirmed by the student body president.  Any student that is interested in leadership, organizational behavior, event planning or becoming more involved in the school are welcome to visit and contact Ms. Flannery via email or in Rm. 452.
