Student Council

Student council

The student council is a great way for students to take on important roles within the school.  This group promotes student involvement and academic achievement.  Student council positions are open to fourth and fifth-grade students.  Students may run for the offices of president, vice-president, secretary, and treasurer.  Students are given two weeks to campaign.  On the final campaign day, candidates present speeches to the fourth and fifth-grade population, who are then able to vote for which candidates they feel are best suited to each position.  Students campaigning learn the values of public speaking, being a role model, and school pride.


Students who are not elected to a position have the opportunity to join one of several committees overseen by the student council.  The publicity committee helps make posters for school-sponsored events and go to classrooms to make special announcements.  The fundraising committee helps with student council fundraising projects.  Pizza night, for example, is a student council sponsored fundraiser.  The birthday committee makes cards for staff birthdays.  The special events committee performs tasks as needed for different events that come to our school.


Overall, student council is a great way for students to feel more ownership of the different happenings at Cottonwood School.
