PURPOSE OF STUDENT COUNCIL
Student Council is an organization conducted by students and supervised by adults. The purpose of the student council is to give students an opportunity to develop leadership by organizing and overseeing morning devotionals, carrying out school activities and service projects, and leadership trips.
