The Student Government Association was created during the 2021-2022 school year. After Hurricane Ida, many students wanted to be a part of rebuilding our Woods community/family.
The Student Government Association was created to give our students an opportunity to lead all of our Eagles to excellence. Our members are an intricate part of their learning experience and their learning environment. The goal of the student council is to create an environment where student voices are not only heard but considered in the learning process.
During the first few weeks of school, students in grades 6-8 sign up for respective roles held by students at their grade levels. Then, based on a small list of requirements, students participate in the application process. This application consists of questions that allow candidates the opportunity to reflect on why they want to participate in The Students' Government Association, and also what qualities they have to be a great leader for all students.
Next, students begin campaigning and working on their election speeches. Students are given 2 weeks to prepare speeches and convince their peers why they would make a great leader.
On election day after speeches are delivered, grades 3-8 complete a virtual ballot to vote in a very intense and exciting election.
Our elected officials are announced the next school day.
