The P.S. 159 Student Council is an important way that you, the students of our school, can be part of the different programs and activities of our school. Being part of the council means you learn about how government and organizations work. Your voice is VERY important to our school and we want to know what you think.
What's a Student council? It's a group of students elected by other students to be part of how the school runs different programs. The council also represents the students at the monthly School Leadership meetings.
Student council members bring ideas, requests, and feedback to the meetings and a democratic process is used to give students a voice and make decisions in creating a year-long calendar. Students who participate in student councils, under the supervision of a teacher or administrator, learn about the democratic process, civic responsibility, leadership, problem solving, and teamwork.
