Comments from Student Council:

“I am so grateful for my experience in planning my grade level activities, for it has given me the opportunity to grow closer with each one of my classmates and form strong bonds. In coming up with ideas to support our community, we act as leaders, utilizing our Catholic education to create a kind and collaborative environment for all to engage in.”
