As part of CHS StuCo, members must exhibit dedication and responsibility and act as school leaders. Council members direct the creation of multiple school-wide activities such as dances, anti-drug campaigns, and service project fundraisers. CHS StuCo is for the most dedicated and virtuous of students.
The School Experience:
Everyday at school, students are affected by negative influences. This may include drug usage, bullying, or racial profiling. It is our job to help our fellow student body by reducing these stresses and increasing the positive influences. We envision a school where students, teachers, and administrators can work in an environment of cooperation and ease.
Along with enhancing student lives, the Clements StuCo also strives to reach out and help the community. StuCo members are expected to not only to be school leaders but also to be community leaders. Clements StuCo has partnered with many volunteer organizations in the past. As such, members frequently volunteer in community events and experience the selfless feeling of volunteerism.
While being leaders, StuCo is about being yourself and having fun! We always start meetings with ice breakers or team competitions to wear off the stress of the day. Furthermore, we host many social events for members throughout the year. By being part of StuCo, you must be able to have fun and enjoy!
