Last year student councils planned and facilitated three middle school dances, a food drive, and spirit days. This year we are looking to implement a recycling program, in addition to the initiatives from last year. Student council at the middle school level is composed of two representatives per grade, and then four 8th grade officers. All other middle school students are welcomed to join the meetings which occur the third Wednesday of each month. Meetings will be right after school until 3pm.
