La Jolla Student Council

 Student council is a student led organization intended to build La Jolla school spirit. Its primary focus is to encourage a sense of pride and ownership in our school. Activities are designed to include students from all grade levels. Ideas for these school wide activities come from the students themselves, through student council representatives. Each 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade class elects 2 representatives who attend bimonthly meetings. Meetings are held during lunch.

The purpose of the student council is:

       To maintain communication between school administration and students

       To give students an opportunity to be heard in decision-making

       To give students a voice for ideas related to school improvement

       To give back through participation in service projects

       To be involved and learn leadership skills

       To show a pride and commitment to their school and community

       To give all students experience with democracy in action
