Russell Elementary School Student Council

The purpose of the Council is:

 In the beginning of the school year, we will be running campaigns for Student Council officers: President, Secretary, and Treasurers. Student will self-nominate with me, make posters, and prepare a short speech to share with the school at a morning assembly. 

After the whole school elects the three officers, grades 5 – 8 will hold individual in class election for class representatives to the Student Council. Terms will be for the entire year, and special elections held for any vacancies that arise.

Grades k-4 will be kept in the loop, but through a class liaison, not elected members attending regular meetings.

I am confident that this Student Council will have a lot of good ideas to discuss. There are many students at RES that will thrive in an organized leadership role. This Council will give them a great chance for productive learning and discussion. I look forward to advising this future group of young leaders.
