Middle School Student Council
Each middle school student in grades five through seven is randomly assigned to a student council committee, which provides service to the CES school community or the community at large. Each team, consisting of fourteen to nineteen students, rotates through three committees throughout the school year, one committee per trimester. After three school terms, students rotate through most, if not all, of the student council committees (see Student Council). These committees are: Bake Sale, Barn, Campus, Coastal Roots (LSU), Correspondence, Cubs and Cats, Environment, Library, Lost and Found, Outreach, and Spirit Committees. One to two faculty representatives assist students in setting goals for the team and helping them to accomplish specific task. Student council meetings are held three to four times each trimester, but sometimes students meet outside of regularly-scheduled meetings in order to achieve specific their goals. Monies raised by student council are used to benefit various causes, such as offering assistance to our foster child in Africa, aiding the local hungry and underprivileged, or helping families after fires or natural disasters. Monies are also used for school activities such as dances and holiday special events. Whatever the beneficiary, student council members learn to work together to help those in need.
