Student Council

Student Council (STUCO) gives middle school students the opportunity to be school ambassadors and work to improve student life. In the past, the council has sponsored or helped at many school events, including:

  • Fall Festival
  • Daddy Daughter Dance
  • Earth Week
  • Holiday "Candy-Grams"
  • 8th Grade Graduation
  • Anti-Bullying Week
  • Art Festival

"Student Council teaches our kids collaboration and leadership skills," says faculty adviser Jessica Sudman. "They also learn how to communicate with peers and adults, and use their creativity to improve the school and their local community." 

Here are a few things council members say they like about STUCO:

“If I did have a favorite part, it’d probably be just being around to help. I learned a lot from my 2014-2015 STUCO experience, and I think I have become a better leader.” – Sage

“I enjoyed helping to form [student relations/incentive programs] because, as an eighth-grader in her last year at Channing Hall, my aim on Student Council was to leave a lasting legacy that benefited the school.” – Shreya 

“I am delighted to have been able to improve student interactions between grades, and also to set guidelines and a legacy for the next generation. Our ideals in student council are inspired by IB values, such as eco-friendly activities and anti-bullying week. I will leave knowing that cooperation is imperative in any community.” – Vincent 

“We raised money to put a water-bottle filler in the middle school hallway so the teachers could fill up their bottles. It was amazing how everyone in STUCO changed over the year for the better.” – Cannon
