    student council
    By Jules

    I am a student council chair and love it! Every classroom grades 4-5 supply thru an election two representatives and an alternate. Kids participating must maintain leadership, good behavior, and follow thru on their responsibilities--otherwise the alternate is appointed. We have had to remove council members for playground behavior issues. Every month we plan a spirit day for the entire school--wear your favorite football jersey, dress like a twin day, crazy hair day. The class with the best spirit wins our stuffed mascot to dress in a display. At the end of the year, we vote for who our favorite "tiger" was. That class wins a treat. We also plan an event for each month---welcome new students signature grab in August, rollerskating party, canned food drive, mitten-hat drive, money drive for new playground equipment, red ribbon week. We also run a school store which is open during lunch hour every Thurs. My advice is to start slow. Think of a creed, the rules, and what the responsibilities of your officers will be. Add spirit days and try for maybe 3 events this year. Then add more as you go in another year. We meet every other Monday during lunch hours. Some councils meet before school, but I'm not a morning person. At the end of the year, we take the council kids out for a Bowling party. Hope this helps some.
