Student Leadership Council Meet

Selma Elementary School's Student Leadership Council had their first official meeting this week and they are ready to get to work! Fourth grade classrooms were visited by SLC advisors, Tamara Seelig and Latrieva Wilson, to promote the group and answer student questions. Interested students had to submit an application and get a teacher recommendation. Applications were reviewed and two representatives were chosen from each class to serve on the council, bringing the total to 16 SLC members. At their first meeting, representatives completed an icebreaker activity to get to know one another and learned more about their roles and expectations. Selma SLC members will have many jobs and responsibilities around the school, including each member joining a staff member on a morning duty around the campus. SLC members are greeting their peers and helping out in the hallways. Next week, SLC members with also join the principals as they deliver the morning announcements to the whole school! Throughout the year, SLC members will learn to be confident, effective student leaders through training based on The Leader in Me by Stephen Covey and his 7 Habits of Highly Effective Kids. The SES SLC will also take several field trips to support their leadership training and will also participate in a service project this school year, in order to show the importance of giving back to the community. Faculty and staff at Selma have already been complimenting the efforts of SLC members and their abilities to model positive behaviors for their peers and are so excited to see all that they will do this year!"
