Student Council Applications Due October 4th

Student applications require a C+ or higher and two teacher recommendations. These applications will be due to me, Lori Erickson 6th grade Science teacher (room E106) by October 4th. After applications are in, each student who applied will have October 7-10 to campaign. Students are allowed to put up 1 poster in their team’s hallway. Representatives will be voted for on October 11th. Each team will have two representatives. From that representative pool, we will elect President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary within our Student Council.

Once we have our representatives, they may be dropped if their grades drop below a C+ or if they have more than one level 2 behavior in a nine week period. Alternates will be appointed by the Team Teachers. Meetings will be held with students on a bi-monthly basis at 7:10 on Thursdays once representatives are elected.
