Senior Student Council


LHA senior Campus Student Council

The Student Council on the Senior Campus is a committee made up of several teachers and about 20 grades 9, 10, and 11 students. This committee gets together on a regular basis to discuss ways to make school life more enjoyable for the student body. Events such as Halloween activities (dances, costume contest, door decorating contest), car washes, lunchtime competition involving teachers and student (“Fear Factor”, “Minute to Win it”, “Who is Smarter than a 5th Grader”, etc.), dress down days, candy cane-o-gram and many other activities are organized by the Student Council throughout the school year. Being a student council member isn’t only about organizing events. There are many expectations that members need to live up to. You must set a good example for the rest of the student body by respecting the dress code, maintaining good grades, respecting school rules, etc. Moreover, student council members have a very important role as they are the representing the student body’s interest. They need to be able to express those interests to the staff and the administration. This way, a student council member needs to collaborate with everyone. You might wonder why a student would give so much of their time to respect all these rules and attending meetings. There are in fact quite a few advantages to be a Student Council member. As you brainstorm ideas for activities for your school, you learn about how to interact with others, how to respect their ideas and to make a positive contribution to a group. You learn about what it takes to organize successful events for an entire school. You also get to meet new people and make high school an unforgettable experience! When you look back at how involved you were with what was going on in your high school, you will be proud of yourself! It also becomes an important experience that will help your future when it is time to work with others and organize large scale events and effective meetings.
