Cougar Council promotes unity

Campi Cougar Council December MeetingAt Campanelli Elementary School, students from grades three through six meet biweekly as the “Cougar Council,” identifying school-wide needs and planning events or activities to promote school unity. 

One student from each class is chosen by vote to represent the homeroom class. The fifth- and sixth-grade representatives also have a “buddy classroom” in kindergarten through second grade that they are responsible for representing.

After meeting for the first time in October, students collaborated to plan Campanelli’s first Veteran’s Day Assembly.  The event was a big success, as the school honored military veterans and donated household items to the Veteran’s Exiting Homelessness Program through Military Outreach USA.

Currently, Cougar Council members are working to promote a “positive feeling” school-wide. They are starting with improving school spirit. Members are asking classes which spirit days they would like to have, and will schedule Spirit Days for the year at their first meeting in January.

Being on Cougar Council helps the members grow as leaders while improving the school environment for all Campanelli students. 

One student says, “It’s neat that as representatives, we can collaborate to help other students as well as ourselves.”
