This year after several weeks learning about elections and the voting process our school held the annual elections for Student Council. The students were given a week to put up their posters and campaign. Then the elections for representative were held in the classrooms. For the officers of the Student Council an assembly was held in the cafeteria with the 5th through 8th grade attending. At the assembly the students running for President gave their speeches and the candidates for Vice-President, Secretary, and Treasurer were presented to those gathered. The students then went back to their classes and voted anonymously on their IPods. When the votes were tallied the winners were announced to the student body. Mr. Alfonso Balmaceda read a beautiful prayer blessing them at the altar after their election.
Our moderator this year will be Mr. JP Rodriguez. He will be teaching the students about how a student government works and listening to their suggestions for the school.
