Student Council, is a platform through which students learn the basics of student government. We learn how to propose an idea to the group and vote, as well as how to debate an issue. We organize two fundraisers per school year, and use the money for student events, such as the schoolwide Valentine’s Day dance and refreshments, the school talents show and service activities. Student Council also organizes Boxtops for Education for PTO.
Our Elementary Student Council travels to Flagstaff or Phoenix on alternating years, to visit either the AZ State Capitol, or the Flagstaff City Hall, where we learn how council meetings work, and get to sit on the council as if we were real Council members. Last year, we met the Flagstaff City Mayor, Mr. Nabours, and toured the council chambers.
Mrs. Christian and Mrs. Kennedy are the Middle School Student Council Coordinators. They work with the students teaching them about student government. The students take on community events and become actively involved in activities that help others. This year they collected movies for Kid Flicks which supplies movies to children in hospitals.
National Junior Honor Society
NJHS students are selected according to strict standards based on scholarship, community service, leadership, and citizenship. New members are inducted every winter, after the end of the second grading period. Sixth graders who have completed two grading periods at Maine School, and seventh and eighth graders are eligible for this honor. Students complete individual and group service projects and exhibit strong leadership skills in their school and community.
“The National Junior Honor Society is the nation’s premier organization established to recognize outstanding middle level students. More than just an honor roll, NJHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1929.
Today, it is estimated that more than one million students participate in official Honor Society activities. NHS and NJHS chapters are found in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, many U.S. territories, and Canada. Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service.”
The Maine School Chapter of the National Junior Honor Society will induct its charter members in April 2007.
