As the end of the school year approaches, what does your council do to celebrate the year? I am always looking for new and exciting ideas to celebrate the council’s achievements over the year. Right now, we hold a banquet that begins with a potluck dinner for all of our members and their families.

Student Council Tips and Tools
The month of May brings the final flurry of activities for student councils with elections, installations, and traditional end-of-year events. In spite of hectic days ahead, it is important for advisers and student leaders to plan for the coming transitions in the council. Seniors are graduating, eighth graders are moving up to high school, new officers are stepping in, and in some cases, advisers are leaving. All these changes will impact the council in the coming year, but that impact can be minimized with preparation.
Start with the officers. Visit the “Council Operations” section in the Adviser Resource Center to find an officer transition and end-of-year checklist that will help you identify many of the actions to consider to effectively transition your new officer team into their roles. Log in today.
