Many of us love attending school dances, and appreciate the cool and fun events that go on in the school, but what many do not know is that Student Council is behind all that hard work, and they plan events they think the Student Body would enjoy. Student Council is filled with leaders with integrity and desire to make the school better.  

On September 23, 2017 StuCo pulled off an amazing “The Big Top” homecoming dance. They work on the dance for months; deciding on a theme, planning, decorating and making sure everything runs smoothly. The outcome really shows off, and the members are proud of their hard work.

“Planning the dance was super stressful and amazing to see it all together.” Lauren Phillips  9 explains. She did Student Council throughout middle school, this is her 3rd year being part of StuCo. She was president of StuCo in 8th grade, and now is a hard-worker of the high school Student Council team.

“Setting up for the dance is really time consuming and there’s a ton of details to be hammered out before the dance, but it was totally worth it.” Gianna Bartalo 10

Being a part of Student Council also means to be a role model and of course show CLASS.

CLASS is character, leadership, academic excellence, school involvement and service to community. Student Council members portray these pillars and act as examples for the rest of the school.

“I join a lot of clubs and stuff because that’s one of our pillars of excellence, school involvement. So I’m involved in clubs, and I like to go to games because it’s fun and it’s also supporting your classmates,” Lhianna Werner 10

The Student Council members are often working hands-on with each other and collaborating so they grow close being in Student Council together. Lhianna Werner 10 and Sydney Purdham 9 talk about how close the Student Council members are.

“We’re kinda like family and we need to trust each other because we plan together so much since we’re planning something for the whole school” Werner 10

“I love getting to work with people in Student Council and meeting a lot of new people, and just working together is a lot of fun.” Purdham 9.

However Student Council is more difficult than some may think. They are consistently working on new projects for the school, engaged in getting new ideas, and staying busy trying to make things the best they can be. They are even on the job after school and at home.

“We really do work hard, even though you might not see the results immediately, there’s a ton of stuff going on in the background.” Bartalo 10

“Many don’t realize how much work we actually do for the school, like all of the main events we are the main contributors to that, all the dances and the little after school things, and decorating the halls for the events.” Purdham 9

Right now, Student Council is planning an important assembly called Drive Smart directed to the whole school. It is to make our school as well as other schools, be more knowledgeable about driving. This will be an important assembly because driving can really have consequences if you do not do it safely, and we want everyone to be more aware of the dangers. Drive Smart wants to let teenagers be more aware of what they are doing, and have them be as safe as they can. Bartalo 10 and Werner 10 help explain.

“Drive Smart is a competition between other schools that puts an emphasis on safe driving,” describes Bartalo 10

“Drive Smart is a way to emphasize the seriousness of driving,  because driving is a tool and it helps a lot, but it can also hurt a lot.” Werner 10  

Student Council is working hard on several events at all times, so make sure to look around at the school and see what cool things your Student Council is doing!
