Student Council (STUCO)
Student representatives and a teacher facilitator meet once a week to discuss issues related to the elementary school body and organize events for their peers. These change every year, but often include such favorites as Spirit Week, talent shows, special fundraising, tournaments, and game nights. Central to the ISO mission and philosophy is the understanding that young people become self-directed and critical consumers of information when given multiple opportunties to exercise their independent and collective voices. By cultivating character and community involvement, ISO becomes a stronger learning community.
Middle School Student Council
Middle School Student Council is a group of students gathered to become involved in school affairs. We work with the PTA and the school to help organize fun and memorable events for our middle school students and staff. Each year we host social activities for the students to enjoy. Most importantly, we are here to give back to our community. With the money we collect from fundraising we are able to help our community through various activities. (Chiara Edah – Middle School Student Council Secretary).
High School Student Council
High School Student Council (HSSC) restructured and re-prioritized this year. The new structure is more typical of a board in that members are elected at large and then officers are nominated and voted for by the other members of the HSSC only. The new priorities of the HSSC are community service, campus improvement and creating leadership opportunities by assisting in the organization and running of large ISO community events. In addition to the usual offices of president, secretary and treasurer, new offices were created to be responsible for community service, athletics, events and student life. Those new officers run committees composed of both HSSC and non-HSSC members and have already been responsible for helping to organize and run some major events as well as creating outside service opportunities for our students.
