Freshman elections will be held in September during a 25-minute activity period. Any freshman interested in running for class officer or student council positions should pick up forms outside the Main Office when they are available in late August. Forms are due to Mr. Costa no later than Friday, September 14.
Below are the descriptions for the class officer and student council positions:
- Secretary: The class secretary will be responsible for typing the agenda and taking the minutes at any class officer meeting. The minutes should be posted for the entire class to see so they can stay concurrent with all planning and decisions being made. Additionally, the class secretary will work closely with the class administrator and other class officers to organize and run fundraising and events. This position requires a very organized and responsible candidate.

The treasurer will work closely with the class administrator and other class officers on these events. The candidate should be responsible and organized.
- Vice President: The class vice president will be responsible for all the same duties as the president in the president’s absence. The vice president will work closely with the class administrator and other class officers to help plan and run fundraising and events. The vice president will also automatically hold a position on student council. Attendance and participation is required as the vice president also serves as the liaison between student council and the class. This position holds a lot of responsibility and the candidate should have a high level of commitment to the class and student council.

If the president is elected during his/her senior year, he/she will be responsible for being the student leader in charge of organizing the senior prom and will spearhead all future reunions for the class. This position holds incredible responsibility and the candidate should have great leadership and organizational skills as well as class spirit.

- Student Council: The student council delegates will represent your class for all council run activities and serve as your voice to the council. They are required to attend weekly meetings and will participate in many community service activities as well as school related activities. These elected members, though, are not the only members of student council. Anyone can join the council, but only the elected members have voting rights. Strong representatives will be motivated and organized individuals with a high level of school spirit.
