Announcing the Lavaca Elementary Student Council

Arkansas River Valley Business Directory

This is the second year that the Lavaca Elementary School has had a Student Council. It was started by 3 teachers; Mrs Lacie Kilbreath, Coach Jamie Patterson, and Mrs Megan Brusso. Mrs Brusso said of the process that, “It challenges them to develop leadership qualities, and challenges them to step out of their comfort zones.” The students run a campaign with posters and then deliver a 2 minute speech to the student body before being voted on by their peers.
Student Council members will represent the elementary school in the homecoming parade, they are leaders during Arrow Time, and they will work alongside school staff to lead in activities. The Student Council is also in charge of designing brochures for incoming kindergarteners and their parents. They will also give guided tour of the campus.
The impact the Council provided last year included getting a “buddy bench” donated to our playground and poinsettias for our school entrance. They conducted many school fundraisers such as, “boo grams” during Halloween, and Carnation deliveries during Valentines Day, the proceeds of which went towards the purchase of T-shirt’s, which they designed. Mrs Brusso said “It has been a great experience for all involved, and we feel it better prepares them for Middle School and High School.”
Without further ado, this years Lavaca Elementary Student Council is:
President Aubree Hobbs, Vice-President Isis Nichols, Secretary Presley Noel, Technology Commissioner Conner Staton, Environmental Commissioner Saylor Williams, Spirit Commissioner Macie Irby, Sports Commissioner Gunner Schmalz.
Class Representatives:
Ava Noel, Jordyn Roberts, Jac Clunn
Teacher Nominee:
Ella McConnell
