2017/18 Student Leadership

Are you interested in Student Leadership?

There are several expectations for a student involved in leadership. Please note these expectations are for next year, as we move forward:

  • Attendance must be exemplary.  There can be no unexcused absences. 
  • Academic work  must be acceptable. If teacher concerns are sent to the office, the student may lose the leadership position. Students and teachers will always be told that there is NOTHING more important than the academic work.
  • Behaviour must be exemplary. If teacher concerns are sent to the office for misbehaviour in class,  the student may lose the leadership position.
  • Leadership participation must be excellent.  All Student Council Exec meetings must be attended, or an excused absence must be shared with the advisor.  All Student Council activities must be supported and have personal involvement and participation.
  • All student leaders must have the signed support of  their parent and at least one staff member.  
  • All student leaders will earn their positions by working NOW.  
  • The student with the most logged hours will get the first choice of position. Email Mrs. Butlin, if you would like to get an electronic copy of the Student Council Log Sheet and to be included in the Student Council Google classroom. On the log sheet, you will indicate that parent and a staff member support this endeavour. Log hours with anything and everything involved with leadership in the school and the  community. This could be clubs at school, present Student Council boards or just helping at school.  This also could working for organizations  outside of school eg. Leaders in Training, or volunteering at Dickinsfield Aux Hospital, or Cadets or any other recognized organization. All you would need is to get an advisor  to sign off for you.
  • Grade 7 students (16/17 Grade 8 students)  you are invited to be a part as well.  17/18 Grade 9 students will get priority on the position, but you could be a co-chair..
  • The Student Council positions are listed in the student handbook, but here they are again for you:
