Student Council

Student Council is an organization conducted by students and supervised by adults.  The purpose of the student council is to give students an opportunity to develop leadership by organizing and carrying out school activities and service projects.  In addition to planning events that contribute to school spirit and community welfare, the student council is the voice of the student body.  They help share student ideas, interests and concerns with the school wide community.

The function of the student council is based upon parliamentary procedures.  Ideas are presented, voted upon and confirmed by the student body president.  Any student that is interested in leadership, organizational behavior, event planning or becoming more involved in the school are welcome to become involved.  

Student Council is a student-based civic organization designed to help promote school spirit, leadership among students, and advocacy work on the behalf of its constituency. Students participating in all levels of the Council (Grades 5-12) should maintain a high standard of personal conduct and academic excellence for the duration of their term.

The Mission

Student Council (SC) exists to serve, advance, and protect the interests of the students at the Modern American School. It will serve as the vehicle of communication between the students and the school community, upholding the SC Constitution, and empowering students through a plethora of extracurricular activities that instill in them a sense of leadership, responsibility and a sense of community. 

Objectives

  • To foster communication among students, administrators, staff, and the community.
  • To promote, organize, and execute activities that encourage school spirit.
  • To develop good citizenship.
  • To promote harmonious relations throughout the entire school.
  • To improve student/faculty relationships.
  • To provide a forum for student expression.

Members of the Council

There are 8 members of the Council in each of the Middle School and High School:

  • Class Presidents of each Grade Level: Freshman, Sophomore, Junior and Senior
  • Student Council Officers:  Student Body President, Vice-President, Secretary, and Treasurer. 

The Council has faculty advisers who are able to introduce students to leadership opportunities in meaningful age-appropriate ways, guide students through the processes of identifying and planning projects and activities, and help students understand the responsibilities that go with their leadership roles.

Election Procedures 

Student Council officers will be elected during the first month of each new academic year. Each candidate must campaign and present a brief speech to the whole student body stating his/her plans for the office once elected.
