Student Council is an organization conducted by student leaders and supervised by adult sponsors. The purpose of Student Council is to provide leadership, and to serve the student body, the school, and the community. Student Council at Raymond Park Middle School is the students' voice in our school.
Who can be in Student Council?
Student Council is an 8th grade council composed of leaders in the school who have been nominated for this role. Students wishing to join who are not nominated, must serve as work-on members before retaining permanent membership. Criteria for becoming a Student Council representative includes maintaining a 'C' average in each class, having good attendance, and earning at least 10 service points each semester by working after school activities as well as Student Council sponsored events.
When does Student Council meet?
Raymond Park's Student Council meets once a month after the regular school day.
What types of projects does Student Council do?
Most of the projects completed by Raymond Park's Student Council are service-oriented. Our major service project is the Giving Tree, which raises money for Raymond Park families in need. Student Council Representatives also help with after-school events by selling tickets and working concessions. The 2009-2010 Student Council helped with a fundraiser to raise money for victims of the disasterous earthquake in Haiti.
