The student council members, according to their by-laws, are elected by their peers to plan and publicize community building activities, to encourage service to others and to serve as “ambassadors” at school events. These Christian leaders also communicate the requests and needs of the students to the administration. Comprised of approximately twenty members, six elected officers from seventh and eight grade plus additional elected representatives from fifth through seventh grades, the Student Council works on every major event at the school. Members help organize and run Open Houses, Dress UP/Dress Down Days, Field Day, Elections, Prayer Services, Masses, the Walk for the Homeless, fundraisers for charities, advisory activities, Blue/Gold games, the Talent Show, plus other special events, like organizing ice skating, canned food drives and other competitions to raise school spirit.
The Student Council officers meet once a week and work very hard to keep students in the know and involved with school events. They are joined once a month by the elected representatives, who help with major projects. Without the Student Council's work, student involvement would be much lower and many school events would not be as unique and well organized. In addition, the students would not enjoy as many events that help bolster school identity and maintain tradition.
