Student Council

4th and 5th Graders

A student council is a group of student leaders who work with an adult advisor to collaborate with others to impact their school community, which impacts their city or town, which impacts our state, which impacts our country, which ultimately changes the world. It starts here, with us, in elementary school!


The purpose of the student council is to give students an opportunity to develop leadership by organizing and carrying out school activities and service projects. In addition to planning events that contribute to school spirit and community welfare, the student council is the voice of the student body. These are elected positions. Elections are held in the Fall. 

Positions Include:

  • President (5th only)

  • Vice President (4th and 5th)

  • Secretary

  • Treasurer

  • Head of Public Relations
