The student council coordinates and generates enthusiasm for class activities
and assists the faculty and administration in establishing policy as it pertains to the student body.
Each homeroom has two representatives who are responsible to report to the student council all suggestions arising in the homeroom and to assist with the set up and clean up of dances. All such suggestions or questions are considered by the executive council of eight officers in consultation with the moderators. The moderators may make a decision on such matters or may recommend a decision to the administration.
SAC officers meet with the moderators weekly and periodically with homeroom representatives to discuss student activities, upcoming events and their coordination, and any student-related questions and problems. <back to top>
