Congratulations to our new Student Council Reps
The emphasis on 8th grade leadership has extended into re-defining the roles for the student council officers. Eighth grade classes discussed and crafted a list of expected responsibilities for this year's Student Council. Students then had the opportunity to run for the offices and give a speech before the entire Middle School with the goal of explaining how each would meet and exceed these responsibilities. Voting took place last Friday in history classes. The results are now in:President - Nick Gag
Vice President - Bakange Ajak
Secretary - Lily Mohr
Public Relations - Jack Still
In the coming weeks these officers will meet to outline the program for the Student Council this year and identify the responsibilities for the advisory representatives. Voting for these offices will take place in the next few weeks.
