Welcome to Terramar Student Council


October Spirit Week
  • Welcome to Terramar 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 carrying out school activities and service projects.  In addition to planning events that contribute to school spirit and community welfare, the student council is the voice of the student body.  They help share student ideas, interests, and concerns with the school wide community.

    The function of the student council is based upon democratic procedures.  Ideas are presented, voted upon and confirmed by the student body president.  Any student that is interested in leadership, organizational behavior, event planning, or becoming more involved in our school and community are invited to apply.  

    Our goal is to promote school spirit, represent the students, and serve our school community.
