Bobcat Student Council

Student Council Information

Fifth and Sixth grade students are eligible to run for an officer position in the Larkspur Student Council.  Student Council is responsible for planning certain school activities including the canned food drive, family dance, school spirit days and other special school fundraising projects.

Offices that are open for election are:  President, Secretary and Treasurer. We will not hold elections for Vice-President.  The person running for President who receives the second highest number of votes will fill the job.

Student Council Meetings will be held bimonthly during intermediate grade lunch.  Officers will meet and then two weeks later, the whole Student Council will meet.  Classroom Representatives will only meet once a month. Students Council members will get their lunch and come to Mrs. Dietz Room for the meeting at 11:50. We will schedule more meetings if necessary.

Elections will take place in October.  As part of the election process, students will present a speech to the students of Larkspur.  In this speech, they will explain to the students why they feel they would be a good choice for the office they are seeking.  This speech will be given in the gym at an assembly. The time limit for this speech is two minutes. Students should take time to write their speech out and practice in front of their parents and friends. A printed or written copy of your speech needs to be turned in to Mrs. Dietz  for approval. 

 After the student has turned in their permission slip, they may make and hang two posters to promote their candidacy.  Their posters may not be larger than 18 by 24 inches.  Before hanging their posters, they must be approved by one of the student council sponsors 

(Mrs. Dietz, Mrs. Sires, & Mrs. Katona).  

You may not bring candy or any other items of persuasion to school to hand out to students for the election. If you are elected to office, there will be a $35 Student Council fee, to cover t-shirts and end of year party.  

As a member of the student council, you will be expected to be a good role model for all Larkspur students in all aspects of our functions at school (behavior, grades, responsibility, etc. If you have any questions, you can ask your classroom teacher or one of the student council sponsors).
