Our Student Council Representatives work hard to support school-wide initiatives and plan fun activities and fundraisers to help our school and local community. Below you will find just a few of the many goals the Student Council Representatives accomplished throughout the 2015-2016 school year:

  • Added two Buddy Benches to our playgrounds

  • Created four free-standing libraries to promote literacy – three for our school and one that the Student Council donated to a neighborhood park.

  • Participated in a ceremony at the Steppingstone Park to donate the free-standing library.

  • Partnered with the Great Neck Parks Department, the Town of North Hempstead, and the Great Neck Historical Society to raise money for the renovation of the Stepping Stones Lighthouse.

  • Facilitated the collection of coats, school supplies, toiletries, food, and many more items to be donated to members of our local community.

  • Created and sponsored Kindness Week.

  • Unity Days throughout the year – all students wore their JFK T-shirts to demonstrate unity on assembly and special occasion days.
