Student Council - Advisers, Mrs. Morey and Mrs. Costello
The central organization of students and student activities at school is the Student Council. The basic underlying function of this council is to make our school a better school. For that reason, its organization and its operation are, or should be, of vital importance to you. The Student Council provides for the expression of student opinion; it tries to build a good relationship between students and faculty: it is a means of coordinating student activities; it endeavors to keep the school spirit on a high level; and it carries out many worthwhile projects and activities.
