Formerly known as Student Council, Mission’s Student Leadership Team is a student-government team open to interested 3rd through 6th graders.
The board, consisting of President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Commissioner of Publicity, is elected after an October campaign, involving posters, speeches at an Election Convention, and a vote by 3rd-6th graders.
In addition to the Board of elected officers, each 3rd- 6th grade classroom sends one room representative to our weekly Thursday noon-time meetings. The meetings are also open to 4th – 6th graders who didn’t get elected but are interested in the student government process.
Typically, the Student Leadership Team helps with the fall KCRA Kids Can! campaign to collect non-perishable food for local families in need, chooses monthly Spirit Days, and runs a February Pennies for Patients campaign to raise money for childhood leukemia research. They also deal with issues they bring up for discussion, like campus profanity or bullying. The Team is currently supervised by two upper-grade staff members.
