Student Council St. Michael’s Student Council is an extracurricular organization whose purpose is to develop leadership and citizenship skills among SMS students, in addition to establishing a school government whereby the students cooperate with the faculty to promote student welfare and school spirit. With this purpose in mind, Student Council serves to engage students in learning about democracy and leadership. As reflected in SMS Mission Statement, Student Council and Mercy Corps together lead by example to inspire our student body, assume leadership roles, and become active members in their school, church, and community. SMS Student Council is comprised of student representatives and officers elected from and by the student body. Offices include President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, Liturgy & Worship, Civics & Citizenship, Safety & Ecology, and Athletics. Also, one classroom representative per semester is elected by each 4th-8th grade class. Duties of both the officers and representatives are delineated by the School Constitution and carefully considered by all candidates before deciding to run for office. All Student Council Officers are expected to be positive, supportive leaders and models for our student body.
