STUDENT COUNCIL

STUDENT COUNCIL REQUIREMENTS

Since members of student council represent the school, they are held at a higher level of expectation and accountability than the regular student body.  Grades, behavior, and attitude are all major factors in determining a potential student council member’s eligibility. 

All candidates MUST present a speech.  Speeches must be typewritten, and should not exceed 3 minutes in length.  A copy of the speech must be given for Mrs. Holewinski’s approval.

 

CAMPAIGN RULES

  1. The cost of campaign materials should not exceed $25.
  2. All posters must be approved and signed by Mrs. Holewinski, and may be hung only in the designated areas around the school.
  3. All posters hung in individual classrooms must have the approval of the teacher in charge of that room.
  4. Distribution of campaign materials shall not interfere with the educational atmosphere of classes.
  5. Nothing edible (candy, cookies, etc.) is allowed to be given out. 
  6. Candidates are responsible for the removal of their own posters, the day after the election.
