Student Council

Leadership in action – St. John Chrysostom Council

The Student Council of St. John Chrysostom School was established in 1974. The purpose of the student council is to provide opportunities and training for student involvement in leadership activities. Our students not only learn leadership involvement, but, are taught citizenship, self-esteem and decision-making. Our group consists of officers elected by the student body. Class representatives are elected by their classmates. Students from grades 5 – 8 volunteer to help in many school activities. Interested students, who want to run for a student body office, are given special leadership training classes each year by our teacher-moderator.

Help Our Young Leaders

We are always in need of adult volunteers and donated goods. Your donation supports us and allows you to earn service hours. You are always welcome to participate in our events. We hope you and your family will have a FANTASTIC school year!
