Spotlight on Timberview: TMS Student Council

This is the second “Spotlight on Timberview” guest blog.  This week’s blog was written by TMS Student Payton C. and describes the school’s Student Council Program.  Thanks to Payton for taking the time to write this fantastic post, and to STUCO sponsors Melissa Gresham and Katie Shropshire for their commitment to these students!

TMS Student Council, by Payton C.

Our student council includes about 65 fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth graders.  These students all went through an application process to be a part of this organization.  Timberview Student Council is a group of dedicated kids who are always willing to help.  The Student Council values each student’s different interests, and they have 5 committees to fit those interests: D.A.S.H (Drugs, Alcohol, Safety, and Health), Community Service, Pride and Patriotism, Energy and Environment, and Teacher Appreciation. Along with making an impact in their school, TMS StuCo is also about team building, and the students meet as a group at least once a month.  This meeting is a great place for kids to have fun, be heard, and learn how to work with others.

By working together, they have already completed many projects in their school and community such as handing out teacher gifts, hosting the Middle Level District 3 Retreat, informing students of bike & helmet safety, and much more! They are currently working on Operation Christmas Child and the Veteran’s Day Breakfast coming up this Friday, November 9th.  Each student in this group leads by example and strives to be a good role model for other students and schools.  They are the voice of Timberview and do an excellent job of representing their peers.
