Student Council exists to serve, advance, and protect the interests of the students at the Lower School. It will serve as the vehicle of communication between the students and the school community, and empowering students through a plethora of extracurricular activities that instill in them a sense of leadership, responsibility and a sense of community.
Student government is a vital part of any school as it sets an example of the democratic process. The Student Council is a body of students from grades 4 through 8 which consist of class representatives, a President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary. The student candidates campaign for these offices; and the student body votes for their chosen candidates during the Student Government elections held in June.
The students serving on the student council play an important role at the Lower School. They relay suggestions from their classmates to the council, write up proposals for possible activities, organize and follow through on the ideas. It is a rewarding experience for them to see their ideas blossom into reality through collaboration and hard work.
