    I have sponsored a Student Council in the past with 3rd-5th graders. Each class had a boy and girl representative. We met weekly and discussed things the kids could do to help the school or community. The students sold lolipops on Fridays during lunch for a fund-raiser.

    The students made posters to promote school spirit and good character traits.

    Some community projects were collecting supplies for a shelter (toothpaste/toothbrushes, soap, shampoo, etc.). Each grade level was asked to donate a different item. They were in charge of making posters and announcements to help promote the school food drives. We also had them visit a nursing home during the winter and sing carols to the residents.

    On Fridays, the teachers would count the number of students wearing the school t-shirt and record the percentage for their class. Student Council representatives would collect the information, find out which class from each grade level had the most, and give that class the "Spirit Banner" for the week.

    For Valentines, the students sold carnations. Students would purchase the flower a week or so in advance. The person buying the flower would have to write down who the flower was for and which class the student was in so that we could deliver them.

    I'm sure we did other things, but this is all I can recall at the moment. Good Luck!
