Student Council:

Hi' I'm Ethan Reich. I'm in 9th grade and I'm running for school president. I think I'm a good candidate because I'm involved in extra curricular activities that make me a good diplomat like model United Nations and the global issues network. I am a caring honest member of the halcyon community. I am persistent and devoted to any task set for me and I would love to hear any ideas you have for the school.
I would appreciate all your votes.

Grade 9 & 10: please help Jackie with her Personal Project and fill in the below form:
