Although this is just a piece of our program, it has helped me tremendously. In addition to character education lessons at every student council meeting and fundraisers that help us to fund our PBIS program, the student council also plans community service opportunities for our school to participate in and lead kindness week and other spirit weeks at our school. Our student council is a vital part of our school and they have taught me at least as much as I have taught them. I hope this is helpful to your program!
