SMS Stuco - Student Council One Student Council Rep is chosen by each Seminar. Student Council meetings are usually held the 3rd Wednesday of every month, during seminar.
We usually meet the 3rd Wednesday of the month in room 116 during seminar. Our three largest events are the school carnival for TNO, and our two school dances.
The carnival is our major fundraiser. Seminars provide carnival games for students during the school day, the day before Thanksgiving break.
TNO CARNIVAL FUNDRAISER: All seminars plan an activity for the carnival. Students all take shifts and work their activity. When students are not working they are able to go around and play the games. Students bring money that day to play games or purchase food items. All money raised goes to TNO for their needy Christmas families. Please help by sending supplies and prizes to your child' s seminar and by sending money with your child on the day to participate.
