During circles today, you will do a student council circle to learn more about what student council is and does, along with how to run for student council. We want to get students elected before we leave for winter break, so when we return, we can jump right into it! There will be more specific details on when you will run for the council soon, but if you have any questions after your circle, please reach out to Mr. Shults or Mrs. Biros!
