Student Council

Student Council

The Student Council works to enhance student life, build school spirit and initiate school events and activities from the student perspective. As the student leadership of the school, it works to represent the concerns and opinions of the Student Body to the school and to the school administration. The Student Council will meet twice a month on Fridays straight after school in the Social Studies classroom. If you are a student who wants to make a difference at our school then please join Ms. Lonkhurst and Mr. Harrison at the first meeting of the Student Council on September 15th.

Outdoor Ed encourages students to think critically and solve problems within team building exercises/games (most, but not all, activities will take place outdoors). Planning for out of school outdoor excursions will be based on the interest of the club members. Most excursions will take place on Fridays after school.

 
We will have meetings occasionally during lunch, but otherwise, this is an event-based club that will not meet at regularly scheduled times. Middle School students (and parents) will be given information about upcoming activities and will have the opportunity to sign up as desired. Be on the lookout for fall events in your email and in our newsletter soon. Have an idea for an outdoor education activity? Please let Ms. Cox know.
