Student Council

Saint Irene Student Council is a service based organization. We are committed to helping others in need. All grades, Pre-k through 8th grade, are an important part of out student body, and all ideas are welcomed.

Students participating in Student Council learn about representation, voting, planning and carrying out projects, and working on behalf of the school and its members; all of which are integral parts of a Student Council.

Some of the many activities and lessons learned are:

  • Conducting weekly Student Council meetings
  • Understanding office and representative positions
  • Putting ideas into action
  • Understanding committees
  • Preparing for individual class meetings
  • Working with the principal and staff
  • Working with parents and other community members
  • Learning parliamentary procedure
  • Carrying out service projects
  • Planning and conducting all-school activities

Students in grades 5 through 8 elect 2 representatives from their classroom. These students must be in good academic standing, and be responsible and willing to enthusiastically report back to their class on Student Council activities.

During weekly meetings (held during lunch), the students brainstorm and assume their roles as leaders. As activities are planned, some work also needs to be accomplished before or after school.

Representatives do not need to petition or hang posters. Elections for representatives will be held in the grade 5 through 8 classrooms. No alternates will be elected.
