Student Council Elections
The time for Student Council elections has arrived! Student Council is a club at RSE that consists of third, fourth, and fifth graders. We will work hard to improve Rock Spring through various school and community service projects. We also sponsor the annual talent show. The members of Student Council are elected by their classmates. We meet after school from 2:30-3:15 about once a month. Each third, fourth, and fifth grade class elects one class representative. Also, fourth graders have the option of running for vice-president and fifth graders have the option of running for president or secretary.
· The President leads all meetings (with sponsor’s guidance) and has many leadership and speaking opportunities. The president must be dependable, trustworthy, and extremely responsible.
· The Vice President assists the president with all duties.
· The secretary takes notes at each meeting and completes many jobs for the club’s sponsors. The secretary must be a very good listener and have an excellent memory.
· The class reps must attend all meetings and communicate the information to their class. They must be very dependable.
