Who can be a part of Student Council?
Student Council is open to students in second through fifth grade. Students who would like to run for student council must declare their candidacy and meet the requirements. The candidate must be academically responsible and demonstrate positive citizenship skills and behavior. To verify this, a student must have the endorsement of their homeroom teacher and parental permission on the provided form. Elections will be held in your child’s homeroom class.
When and where does Student Council meet?
The Woodland Student Council will meet at 2:45-3:30 in room 415 one Wednesday each month when the schedule permits. Please see calendar for meeting dates.
What does Student Council do?
The student council will encourage good citizenship, school spirit and sharing ideas to make our school the best it can be. The council will help students work together and assist other citizens and groups in our community.
How will my child get home?
Parents of council members will be responsible for transporting their children to meetings. Additionally, more than two late pick ups will result in removal from the Council.
What is the attendance policy?
If any representative has two unexcused absences from council meetings, we will assume that the student is no longer interested in serving on the council and another student will be selected to assume his/her responsibilities as a homeroom representative.
What can my child do and not do to campaign for the position?
If your child decides to run for class representative and is eligible, please be aware that “give-a ways” such as stickers, buttons, pencils, handbills, candy, or cards may not be used in campaigning. Students will be permitted to campaign only with personal contact and one small (no larger than 9”x12”) poster to be hung in his or her homeroom.
Who are the Student Council sponsors?
Mrs. Dunn, and Mrs. Kelly are the Student Council sponsors. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
