The middle school student council is a of a group 6th, 7th, and 8th grade student leaders passionate about KCIA and their community. These students were selected by their peers, and the positions include a president, vice president, treasurer, recorder, and two representatives from each grade. Members on student council must be on the A/B honor roll, maintain 90% attendance, and display positive behavior.
Student council meets bi-weekly to discuss and plan community projects, volunteer opportunities, fundraisers, spirit days, and pep assemblies.
So far this year, student council has created volunteer opportunities for middle school students during school hours, such as reading to elementary students. They also created an after school volunteer program where middle school students can stay and help the elementary teachers. The members have put on fundraisers to raise money to grow the student council organization and for outside charities.
Some future plans for student council include: raising money for the middle school yearbooks, planning a community project, such as volunteering at Children’s Mercy, and planning a spring talent show!
