• Student Council Information:

    CES Student Council Opportunities and Expectations: 

    • Serve as a student leader- leadership and service go hand in hand
    • Serve as a good example to peers and younger students at CES (no one is perfect, but we focus on personal growth as a leader) 
    • Encourage community service and awareness with Brookville Elementary 
    • Spread school spirit and awareness with our school motto: Cougar STRONG and monthly character traits
    • Serve our school in the capacity of helping with special events like giving tours to new students or prospective families, helping clean up after CES Fall Festival and cheering on our Special Olympic athletes from CES. 

    When does student council meet: 

    Typically once a month: either on a Wednesday after or before school. Sometimes, we might have a brief working session during lunch or AO. During Nov. and Dec., we often meet more than once due to the heavy workload of the Holiday Helpers Service Project for Brookville Elementary. 

    If you are already plugged in to various activites, sports, groups or clubs, please do not feel obligated to apply for student council. All students can be leaders whether on student council or not.

    We love that our CES students are involved inside and outside of school. Please only apply if you feel you have the extra time to attend and contribute. 

    Can we add new service projects or components to student council throughout the year?

    While we welcome new ideas from students, parents and teachers, we do have to remain focused on the projects we've committed to for the upcoming year. Student Council is operated, planned and organized 100% outside of school hours. While we would love to include more opportunities and grow the team, this is 100% volunteer and we try to keep the events and group size manageable. We try to protect instructional time for the students and protect our responsibilities for the job role as school counselors.
