The middle school student council group, also known as CLC, has worked hard this year to enhance the student experience. They’ve organized two LISC dances, partnered with the Random Acts of Kindness Club on several projects, persuaded administrators to add leggings as acceptable attire on dress down days, and taken charge of updating the hall TV monitor with important news and announcements.
The purpose of the CLC is to foster citizenship in our community and to encourage students leaders to put their ideas into action. CLC members are asked to listen to their peers and then develop plans to turn their ideas into reality. For example, the CLC recently acted to provide after school snack options for students after the vending machines in the athletic wing were removed. The snack shop, which is open after school on Tuesdays, is student-run and provides a range of snack options. The snack shop has been a big hit, and the CLC is looking to expand the schedule.
Eighth grader Kate Whiting, CLC’s president, loves the fact that the group acts as a connection for students and teachers and gives students a voice. “The opportunity to talk with teachers and connect with students and represent their ideas is empowering,” she commented.
Seventh grader Roderick Purdy, vice president of the club, agrees. “Knowing that what we do makes a difference in our school is a nice feeling,” he said.
