Student Council

Student Council is an elected group of students that share ideas, interests and concerns regarding activities within the school. A key component of Student Council is the development of civic responsibility and leadership. Their role is to also promote school spirit and good citizenship among the entire student body. Fundraisers are held throughout the year that are sponsored by Student Council. These fundraisers help defer the cost for Washington, D.C. Camp MiTeNa, and other school activities.
