Student Council

School is a great place to try new things - join clubs, audition for the lead in the school play, try out for the track team and even get involved in student council. Being a member of student council allows you to take action, especially if you have a school complaint. So get involved in your school's student council, raise your voice and make a difference.

Student Council - Why Get Involved?

Joining student council is a fun way to get involved with your school. And it's a great way to make friends and meet new peeps - improving school issues will definitely get you noticed around the hallways. More importantly, if you have a school complaint, whether it's about class sizes or teacher availability, then you can help to bring about a change by taking a stance and standing up for students' rights. Getting involved gives you the opportunity to improve issues and make your school a better place.

Student Council - How Do I Get Involved?

Ever watched the movie, Election, starring Reese Witherspoon? She plays a smart, overachieving student who goes crazily overboard while running for class president cuz she wants to win at all costs! However, your class election won't be that extreme - just choose a position and run for it. During your campaign, put up posters and make nomination speeches. This is the time to put your best face forward and show your classmates why they should vote for you!

Student Council - Positions

  • Class President - Supervises student body activities and runs council meetings.
  • Class Vice-President - Assists the class president and fills in when the president is unavailable.
  • Class Secretary - Keeps accurate records of meetings and student body activity schedules.
  • Class Treasurer - Keeps track of student body funds.

Student Council - Committees

Getting involved with any school committee is fun, but prom committees are a total blast - after all, you'll be planning the biggest party of the year! But before you start partying, you'll have to get down to business, from balancing the budget for both the venue and the menu to choosing a decorative theme. Being a prom planner will be more of a memorable experience than a headache, as you think of a million and one ways to throw the prom of the century.

Student Council - Build Your Resume

If you're passionate about politics, focused on a career in the government or just want to help make a difference, then get involved. It'll look great on your college application and resume, and show your future employers that you can take initiative, whether it's improving the cafeteria food or buying more balls for P.E. class.

say to your grandmother," i understand and acknowledge that you are allowed to dislike ANY of your grandchildren but for you to favor thats completly out of the question and completely unfair. i just wanted to be loved equally by somebody as important to me as you are. but if aren't willing to do so then i will turn to my grandfather and my parents."

I say that if they verbally hurt you that way they are NOT your true friends the may POSE  as your friends, but they're not. now, they may pretend because you have something they want or you give them free stuff. if you feel like crying. go out and find friends that'll make you feel like you flying OVER your old mean friends. real friends treat you with respect, check in on you, and talk to you when NOBODY will. trust me i know. if you have fallen down and need help you can easily seperate your true friends from the POSERS.
