The Lake Tahoe School Student Council is a group of fifth through eighth graders interested in developing their leadership skills by helping their school and community.
The Student Council focuses on school improvement, community involvement and school spirit. All members of the council participate in the following areas of service:
~ members work on helping our school. A major focus for our student council has been the organizing and opening our school’s first ever Bobcat School Store. Student Council members are responsible for promoting, stocking, budgeting, and running the store throughout the year. We also brainstorm ideas for assemblies and ways to bring our school together.
~ members work on getting our school involved around the Tahoe Basin. We work continually with Project Mana, Tahoe Family Solutions, and other local charities. In addition, we organize and run the annual Yard Sale, with all proceeds donated to charity. Council members learn to encourage all members of our school and community to interact with one another and demonstrate civic responsibility. It is a great way to demonstrate respect for our community.
~ members plan spirit days for our school throughout the year. The majority of the work we do is hands-on. Each year, the Student Council hosts a spirit week and works hard to decorate the school and excite the students for the week. We encourage our students to be proud of whom we are and show school spirit. Members gain leadership experience and the valuable ability to motivate both themselves and their peers.
The Student Council is proud to serve the Lake Tahoe School student body and surrounding community. We constantly look for new ways to help and improve the environment that we are so fortunate to share. Keep a look out for upcoming events hosted by our Student Council.
