McKelvie Student Council

Student Council

     Student Council elections will take place in homerooms during the month of September.  Students who are interested in joining Student Council will need to keep these guidelines in mind.  Please do not run for Student Council if you have conflicts with the meeting times and events noted here.  All SC members are required to attend and help out at two of our three major events for the year.  

     Each homeroom will vote for one representative.  Students who run for office are encouraged to have a short speech prepared to explain why they believe they would be an effective student council member.  Please do not prepare any food or treats for your class.  Explaining your honest reasons for running is the best way to be sure you are the right person for the job. The first meeting will be in October.


Club Description

The McKelvie Student Council is a group of fifth and sixth-grade representatives (one per classroom) who are elected at the beginning of the school year by their classmates. Representatives attend bi-weekly meetings with staff advisors where they discuss their classmates' suggestions and choose and make posters for theme days that occur every last Friday of the month.  We also plan a spirit week each year as well.  The mission of Student Council is to foster school spirit!  Student Council members are expected to be leaders in their homerooms by participating in and reporting back to their classes about spirit days and student council events.  Additionally, members assist with School Store during Friday lunches (along with a parent volunteer), Mid-Afternoons at the Movies, and the McKelvie Talent Show.   

We're looking forward to working together with our _____ council members!
