Student Council

Description of activity: The student council acts as a liaison between the student body, the administration and the school board. The student council is involved in the Hennepin Division of Student Councils and the Minnesota Association of Student Councils.

Where to go for more information:
B207.

Length of season: Students are elected by members of their grade level and serve for one school year.

Meeting times:
Meetings are held on alternate Tuesdays during the school day and rotate through the schedule. In addition, there are meetings every other Monday at 7:50 a.m.

Meeting site:
Forum Rooms.

Eligibility requirements:
There are two ways a student may become a member of the student council. To be an elected voting member, candidates must participate in the spring election and be voted in by members of their class. To be a non-voting, work-on member, interested students must pick up an application at the start of the school year, go through an interview process, and complete 15 hours of student council activities by the end of Homecoming Week. Transfer students who were active in student council in their previous school become members upon the recommendation of their former advisor. All student council members must adhere to legal statutes, school policies and the WHS Student Council Constitution. Students must meet the Wayzata Public Schools Extra-Curricular Eligibility Requirements.

Average number of members:
The senior class has 10 elected members, the junior class has eight elected members, the sophomore and freshman class each have six elected members. In addition, the council may consist of work-on members.


Student leadership:
Once elected to the student council, members have the opportunity to act in a variety of leadership positions.

Join Student Council

There are 2 ways to join:

  1. Run in the spring election. If elected you become a member of the Senate. Senate members attend House meetings and the in-school Senate meetings.

    Each middle school selects (elects) two 8th grade students to be on the Senate. The middle schools determine how these students are decided. The names are forwarded to the high school in May.
     
  2. Work-on and become a member of the House. To work-on, you need to complete 15 hours helping out at Student Council activities and these hours must be completed by the end of Homecoming Week. Students may start earning hours in the summer by working at “Back to Business” day events. House members attend only the Monday morning House meetings.

What do we do?

  1. We plan Homecoming Week.
  2. We organize all of the dances throughout the year.
  3. We select and honor our WHS Distinguished Alumni.
  4. We represent the student body at school board meetings and at PTSO meetings.
  5. We run P.E.A.C.E. day for our middle schools.
  6. We organize Survivor Week.
  7. We represent the student voice to our administrators.
  8. We run our annual Adopt-A-Family program with Interfaith Outreach.

If it involves social programming for our school – WHS Student Council is involved.
