Estes Student Council consists of a President (4th grader), Vice President (3rd grader) and a Senator from each classroom (K-4th). The members of the council are elected by the entire student body. For one week they get to campaign by hanging up posters, reading to younger students, and walking the hallways introducing themselves before school begins in the mornings. The Presidential and Vice-Presidential Candidates also write and recite a 1 minute speech that airs for the entire student body to further address their platforms. Each year our student council will be responsible for 2 community and 2 school projects. We believe this process not only teaches our students about the electoral process, but it also gives our students a sense of ownership to our school. We are growing great leaders at Estes and the student council is an excellent example.
