2015-16 Student Council Meetings will be held on the FIRST Thursday of Each Month

August 26, 2015

Dear Parents and Student Council Members,

Welcome to Gale’s Student Council!! :) We are going to have a terrific year. We are happy that you are on board with Student Council and we are going to try to make as many plans and events as we can to ensure a positive experience for all and one that benefits us at Gale and our community.

Our meetings will be held directly after school, from 3:30pm - 4:30pm on the first Thursday every month in A-1. Please put the following meeting dates on your calendar:

  • September 3, 2015
  • February 4, 2016
  • October 1, 2015March 3, 2016
  • November 5, 2015April 7, 2016
  • December 3, 2015May 5, 2016
  • January 7, 2016

Attendance and participation in events is expected of all Student Council members, as is role model behavior that depicts leadership qualities. On our first meeting, September 3 we will be voting on our President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Historian so for those of you who would like to be considered for an office, please come prepared to present your case. You have one week to campaign. On Thursday, September 3, those of you who want to be an officer will be presenting to and voted in by your student council members and not the entire student body.

We already have an event scheduled that we need to be preparing for right away. We are joining forces with Nielson to host a St. Jude’s Walk-a-Thon at the GHS Field House, Saturday, September 26 in the morning. In fact, just today, we received the packets for it and those will need to be disbursed, the first week of September.

Additionally, we will also be supporting our wonderful PTO in every way that we can from helping set up PTO events to selling refreshments. Anything that we can do to assist, will be what we are happy to do and provide.

Looking forward to a great year working together!! Welcome aboard!! :)

Your Student Council Advisors,
Mr. Thompson and Mrs. Rush
