Student council gives students the opportunity to further their skills like leadership, communication, teamwork, organization and public speaking.
Student Council is comprised of the 8th-grade class and one class representative from grades 5, 6, and 7. We meet once a month on Wednesdays from 11:45-12:30 PM & at various other times throughout the year in preparation for scheduled school events. Our student government hosts various food drives throughout the year for the Queen of Peace Parish Food Pantry. They collect items for the Mercy House in Newark & the Bergen County Animal Shelter. The members of the council plan and host events throughout the year which include: Catholic Schools Week, Spirit Week, themed Tag Days and activities, guest speakers, holiday events and raffles.
At the end of the school year, the Student Council hosts a carnival for all students.
The Student Council, moderated by Ms. Cherry, is open to 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students. Class Representatives are voted in by their class members. All meetings will be held to Room 21 at lunch time. Bring your lunch with you. Additional meetings may be held on Wednesday afternoons from 3-4pm if needed. Please listen to the morning announcements for details.
