Student Council elections will take place in homerooms during the month of September. 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.
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 and spirit weeks, all with the goal of fostering school spirit! Additionally, members assist with School Store during Friday lunches (along with a parent volunteer), Mid-Afternoons at the Movies and Family Bingo Night in February. Members who are interested in doing so emcee our highly-anticipated year-end talent show.
We're looking forward to working together with our 2016-2017 council members!
