What types of projects does Student Council do?
 
Most of the projects completed by our Student Council are service-oriented. Whether the efforts are to provide service to our community or our school, all projects are chosen to promote awareness of the people around us.

Fundraisers are also held by our Student Council to raise money for our school and to support our projects.

Student Council representatives and officers may also be chosen to help with certain school activities where the principal and assistant principal feel positive role models and leadership within the school are needed.
