GOALS OF WEST WING STUDENT COUNCIL
Leadership - Developing and promoting leadership abilities
We build students' leadership skills through the three conferences we attend each year. We also provide leadership activities during our general council meetings. We discuss leadership and how we can impact the entire West Wing student body and community through our service.
Diversity - Building awareness, respect, and value for all people
Every year we support different causes that are determined by the student council members. We have had awareness days and fundraisers for such things as Autism Awareness Day, Heart Healthy Month, Juvenile Diabetes, and much more!
Academic Achievement - Striving for and creating motivation for academic excellence
This committee works on providing awards and recognition for academic achievement across all grade levels. Last year we developed and implemented a Smart Cookie campaign designed to reward students for outstanding achievement on unit tests and overall growth in any academic area.
School and Community Involvement - Building a partnership between the school and community with service
This committee works to hold various fundraisers that directly impact our school and community. Last year we raised $150 for the ALS research campaign, We donated $800 to a student's family at a school in our district, and we bought over 100 turkeys for the Deer Valley Family Resource Center for Thanksgiving. This year we are working on supporting St. Jude's Children's Hospital.
School Spirit - Creating activities for campus pride and participation
We plan and prepare pep assemblies, school spirit days, and special campus events such as Kindess Week and Police Appreciation Week that promote school pride! Go Mustangs!
Chief Science Officers - Student advocates of all things STEM.
CSOs will serve as the “STEM voice” for their student body, identifying opportunities for their school such as programs, speakers, workshops, field trips, science nights, and clubs and ensure such experiences reflect interests of their peers. They will serve as the school’s external point of contact and streamline the ability for the STEM-based organizations to meaningfully connect with their school.
