TLC Student Council Underway!

Now that the big, exciting elections are done and over, it is time to get to work (both at the White House AND TLC Student Council Head Quarters!)


The TLC Student Council actually had their first official meeting FACE-TO-FACE! Well, at least almost everyone was face-to-face.  The Frenchboro kids skyped in for the meeting and so did I. The rest of the group were all together at Camp Jordan, enjoying the fall field trip!

 

We were extra thankful to the Frenchboro boys for coming to the meeting since it didn't take place until FOUR O'CLOCK in the afternoon, which means that they had to come BACK to school for the meeting! Now, THAT'S dedication!

 

Our new " El Presi-lady" lead the meeting! She was a rock star! All of that leadership training has paid off because this leader was thoughtful, patient, fair, clear, and decisive! I was SO proud! I think our former El' Presidente would be proud too!

 

The kids were all giving special student council visors and pins that were made which had their student council "titles" on them. Here's our Vice President in the blue visor sharing some thoughts while the kids were brainstorming what the "norms and expectations" of student council should be!

 

This cutie in the orange visor is the Secretary reading back the norms to the group so everyone could vote in agreement to follow and work by the norms and expectations that they set!

 

At the first meeting the gang also discuss what project they first wanted to work on for the student council. They decided they wanted to do something fun and that would boost TLC morale early on in the year, so they want to organize another TLC "SPIRIT WEEK" to be held in early December! (YES! I LOVE SPIRIT WEEKS!)

 

Two weeks later we had the second Student Council meeting, this time on the "Polyberg" units! The kids came ready and excited to get to work on some big Student Council projects.

 

There's the good looking Frenchboro crew again! 

 

And the Ashley Bryan contingency! The Student Council talked about their plans for spirit week and this group had some GREAT ideas of what theme days and events they could have to make it fun and different from last year!

 

Here is one of our Vice Presidents on Cliff Island! She did a great job adding some awesome ideas to the conversation.

 

And our other Vice President on Monhegan! This guy is a president in training :) He is another very patient, kind, and fair leader of this group!

 

And here is the Matinicus group! El' Presilady did another excellent job leading the meeting. She also brought up the idea of wanting to start brainstorming some new ideas of what to do for this year's TLC t-shirt design! The ideas were just preliminary, but I have a feeling that this years shirt is going to be AWESOME!


And of course we ended our meeting with a quick little dance party! Hey, I think a student council that can dance together, stays together! And this group isn't going anywhere.

Again, I am so, so, so proud of this group of student leaders. They have already come up with some great ideas and I know they will just keep a' coming! If YOU, our readers, have any ideas of what projects and activities our student council should take on this year, please leave us a comment! We LOVE new ideas AND comments! :)
