Parents, 4th and 5th grade students have the opportunity to join Student Council this year. The purpose of Student Council is to provide student leadership, promote school spirit, and participate in service projects. Our Student Council is responsible for Friday Spirit Days and other special dress up days. Student Council also raises funds to support student activities such as Spelling Bee, Oral Interpretation, our annual talent show, and for the purchase of school equipment that will benefit Silva Valley students. This year, students who participate in Student Council will also have an opportunity to be a part of the Silva Valley News, an in-house news broadcast that informs staff and students of upcoming events as well as showcases classes and students demonstrating school spirit.
A meeting will be held during 4th and 5th grade’s first recess on Thursday, August 16th to discuss what Student Council is about and what is required of them if they choose to participate. Each class will then nominate 2-3 students to participate. Last year, we opted to select students to participate each trimester to allow everyone who wanted to participate the opportunity. Meetings are typically held once a month during 4th and 5th grade’s first recess unless they are filming the Silva Valley news for the week.
If your child is nominated, they will bring home a permission slip around August 17th. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to send me an email at email@example.com.
