The Elementary School Student Ambassadors
Students in grade 5 have the opportunity to serve as ambassadors for the elementary school for one trimester. The ambassadors are a volunteer student leadership group. They provide school tours and information for new families during registration, help plan portions of the elementary school assemblies, assist with special events, and assist in community service projects. The ambassador experience also prepares students for future leadership roles in the middle school.
The Middle School Student Council
Being a part of this group offers students leadership opportunities and is a mechanism for involvement in middle school community affairs. Each year, student council procedures include nominations, one week of campaigning, a democratic election and a swearing-in ceremony.
The student council consists of five positions on the executive council - president, vice president, secretary, treasurer, public relations officer and community service representative. Additionally, students can hold a one-trimester position as grade level representative. The student council is supported by a teacher advisor.
Once elected, the student council meets weekly to examine the needs of the middle school. All middle school students and staff are invited to send suggestions or new ideas to the student council. The student council sets a formal meeting agenda and the president runs the meeting. The student council plans and carries out school and community activities such as middle school parties as well as service projects such as fundraisers, bake sales and global awareness initiatives.
The Middle School Student Ambassadors
Students in grades 6-8 have the opportunity to serve as ambassadors for the middle school. The ambassadors are a volunteer student group that attend a leadership training.

The ambassadors are the first contact to help orient new students to middle school throughout the year. They are also trained to help with school tours and providing information for new families. This group partners with student council on events and leadership opportunities and also represents middle school at school-wide events. The ambassador experience also prepares students for future leadership roles in the high school.
