Student Council is a leadership and service organization that is open to St. Martha middle school students. It is a student based and governed organization with service as its primary focus. It is composed of class representatives who are nominated and elected by the students in each respective grade. These elected peers also form the pool for which officers are voted on by the student body. Student Council serves as a voice for the student body expressing ideas and issues, and negotiates with teachers and administrative staff regarding various issues, activities and events that directly relate to the student body. Student Council also takes on various missionary projects that reach out to community based organizations that serve the less fortunate.
Student Council meets the special interests of the students by providing leadership and service opportunities which serve not only as an outflow of Christian formation while at St. Martha Catholic School but also prepares the students for leadership and service opportunities in their academic future. In addition, Student Council serves the interest of the students by providing an avenue by which their concerns can be addressed in a conciliatory manner and their peers can serve as a liaison and mentor when needed.
PLEASE NOTE: Formation of Student Council for 2016-2017 will depend upon student interest and sponsor commitment.
