Who We Are
Student Council (STUCO) is a democratic organization formed by class representatives chosen by their peers. Its purpose is to represent the student body, taking into consideration their ideas, interests and concerns. In the high school, this organization promotes a sense of belonging and responsibility to the community through activities such as Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Saint Patrick’s Day, and Easter. Once a month, STUCO also organizes Lunch-A-Month by bringing different restaurants to school during lunch time. The goal of this project is to raise funds for student activities. STUCO meetings take place every Tuesday during lunch and members should be hardworking responsible leaders who value efficiency, as well as respect others and their ideas. After becoming a member, elections are held within student council to assign the roles of President, Vice-President, Secretary, and treasurer.
