Silver Oak Student Council represents the voice of our students. They help to organize community service projects, arrange school-wide special activities and provide input on school decisions.
Students raise funds throughout the year by selling Holiday Grams. Monies raised go to Silver Oak projects.
Spirit Week & Pep Rallies
Student Council brings students together to celebrate our school through Spirit Weeks and Pep Rallies. During Spirit Week, each day Student Council representatives visit all classrooms to tally participation. Only students who are wearing proper spirit wear are counted (no post-its for colors etc.) The primary and upper grade classrooms with the highest percentage of participation are awarded the "We Have Spirit!" toilet seat (to go with the golden plunger). The toilet seat will be passed on throughout the year.
Community Service Projects
Silver Oak students and their families generously serve and support the community in many ways. Each year, Student Council decides and participates in several programs such as, Toys for Tots, Pennies for Patients- Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and Survival Snacks for Sacred Heart.
Silver Oak Student Council consists of six student officers, which include president, vice president, treasurer, sergeant of arms, and two historians. Also included are two class representatives per class in 5th and 6th grades.
Student Council is open to all students in 5th and 6th grades. Elections are held every year in September and are voted on by students in 5th and 6th grades. Meetings are held during lunch the first Thursday of every month from October-May. The student council, which is overseen by 6th grade teacher Mrs. Neil, manages programs such as the student store, recycle programs, community service, and spirit rallies for the school. They raise money throughout the year with their Holiday Gram programs for school.
