Student Council 2019-2020 election results are in. Eighth grade students submitted applications for self-nomination, prepared and presented speeches, and participated in our school’s governing process. Congratulations to our new cabinet of elected officers:
President: Alex W.
Co-Vice Presidents: Bella L. and Jimmy W.
Secretary: Ashan A.
“This is a very strong group of leaders and we are really looking forward to working with them and the Middle School representatives,” said Ms. Cooke, Middle School Advisor.
Student Council wouldn’t be complete without class representatives from grades 1-8. Each class selects 2-3 students to represent the voice of the larger school community. Representatives, rotating throughout the year, attend weekly meetings on Friday during Community Time to represent the ideas of their classes. Together with the officers, the representatives form our BHS Student Council.
Congratulations to the following representatives for fall term:
1st Grade: Elias K. and Hannah O.
2nd Grade: Jeremiah P. and Sarah V.
3rd Grade: Valentina P. and Ryan V.
4th Grade: Lari M., Sydney S., and Brady W.
5th Grade: Gianna M. and Zairah S.
6th Grade: London I. and Isa M.
7th Grade: Moises D. and Ava S.
8th Grade: Kiki I. and Simone M.
“These students demonstrate leadership and teamwork every day at BHS. They are creative problem-solvers and critical thinkers who are compassionate agents of change,” added Mrs. Morse, Advisor for Grades 1-5.
The purpose of the Berkeley Hall Student Council is to give students an opportunity to develop leadership skills by organizing and carrying the mission of the school through student-ledactivities and service projects. In addition to planning events that contribute to school spirit and community welfare, Student Council is the voice of the student body. Our meeting structure loosely follows Roberts Rules of Order as students learn to set and follow an agenda, take minutes, and report to their constituents.
All officers and class representatives will be introduced at Monday’s Bobcat Assembly.
