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 running the Sabercat Student Store and 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
Toys for Tots
Silver Oak and our Student Council annually support the U.S. Marine Corps helping to collect toys and gifts for less fortunate children in our community each holiday season.
Pennies for Patients- Leukemia and Lymphoma Society
Silver Oak Student Council teams up each year with The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to support their “Pennies for Patients” fundraising drive.
Survival Sacks for Sacred Heart
Silver Oak Student Council organizes a school-wide collection drive to gather essential hygiene items for Sacred Heart Community Service. These Survival Sacks, designed for the homeless population in San Jose, consist of a brand new backpack filled with essential hygiene items. Sacks are given out the 1st & 15th of every month by Sacred Heart Community Service.
