Junior High Student Council

The Junior High Student Council is comprised of Vanguard students in Grades 7 and 8, elected by their peers early in the school year.  The Council includes four officer positions (President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer) and one homeroom representative for each of the students' homerooms.  Junior high school faculty members, Ms. Kathryn Briggs and Mr. Lane Tande, serve as the staff advisors to the Junior High Student Council.

The focus of the Council is to:

  • Foster a spirit of cooperation among students and faculty
  • Promote and encourage activities for the best interest of the school
  • Develop good citizens and leaders through experience in government
  • Provide a means for student expression
  • Encourage student involvement
  • Promote school spirit
  • Represent and make decisions on behalf of the interest of the student body
The council discusses many issues throughout the school year and supports exciting student projects and initiatives, such as junior high dances (Halloween, Christmas, and Valentines Day), and a Thanksgiving canned food drive.  Meetings are held once a week with all members, and information is communicated to each of the homerooms and throughout the student body.  The student body, in turn, has the opportunity to exchange ideas and offer suggestions through their homeroom representatives to foster a healthy and productive dialogue which benefits the entire junior high program.
