Student Government

Description:

Student Government is a composed of students in grades 9 through 12 who are elected by the student body to plan social functions and address school-related issues. Student Government plans school wide events, such as Homecoming and Prom, as well as fundraisers such as Pennies for Patients and blood drives. Student Government also works closely with administration to strengthen communication between administrators and the student body regarding topics that directly affect students.

Students must be passing a minimum of four classes, be in good standing with the school, and willing to work outside of school hours when planning events.
