GRACE Student Council provides leadership for many school-wide activities and events. Representatives are elected in grades 3-12. Officers are elected from middle and high school.
At the high school level, students must demonstrate strong leadership skills in order to run for elections. They must have a clear testimony of their faith, and have a strong desire to work for their school community. They are interviewed before they are considered for each position. Then they are elected by popular vote, based on their campaign. They are required to deliver speeches in front of their peers. They are held to a high level of conduct both in their personal lives as well as their academic achievement. The executive council meets monthly to discuss events and current student issues. They also meet with the head of school periodically, in order to communicate concerns or ideas with the administration.
Student Council sponsors the school's annual participation in Samaritan's Purse, the Students Against Hunger Food Drive, and other schoolwide service projects. They also organize a September dance, and a Homecoming formal event. In addition, they help build school spirit by implementing activities such as spirit week (Homecoming) and class pride color days. This year, they have created a brand new event. They are hosting a Fall Festival which will raise money and awareness for a veterans' organizations. (organization is to be determined... will let you know when we have figured that out) Each year, the executive council will choose an organization or ministry to "adopt" for the entire school year.
Faculty advisors are Pascale Rivard Fitts and Mandy Gill
