The Andrews Academy Student Council promotes leadership, develops an understanding and appreciation of due process, and enhances life at school by fostering community service, good citizenship, and school spirit.
All sixth grade students are encouraged to run for an office for Student Council. A preliminary vote is held in October with 5th and 6th graders. A final election is held in November with students in grades 3-6 voting. Monthly meetings are held with student representatives from grades 3-6 participating the in the meetings. Community service is a big part of Student Council.
For many years student council has held a canned food drive in November. Other acts of charity include “Hats for Haiti” and collecting shoes to help with a project for clean water in underdeveloped countries in Africa.
Student Council sponsors fun activities for fundraisers and for promoting school spirit. Some of these activities include pajama day, hat day, twin day, wacky day, spirit week, and bake sale.
Over the years the money raised by Student Council has benefited the students at Andrews and many groups in the community. Donations over the years include money donated to Backstoppers; the Red Cross for tornado victims; Multiple Sclerosis Society and Friend of Kids’ with Cancer.
Student Council activities promote school spirit and teamwork. Students take pride in participating in these activities and helping others.
