Under the supervision of the principal, the student council meets regularly to discuss issues pertaining to the needs of students, the school, the community and possibilities for fundraising projects. The council also plans "Spirit Week" with the approval of the administration. These days are always greatly anticipated as the council leads the student body in creative ideas for a fun time. Officers are called upon to help with special assemblies, our Open House for prospective parents and students, and fundraisers and events.

The officers are expected to serve as role models for the student body. Their conduct both behaviorally and academically is observed by all, especially our youngest students. It is with this in mind that all officers must be in good standing to run for election and to hold office.
