Being a member of Student Council was one of many invaluable ways Oakland Catholic taught me to be a leader in my community. (Aside from being such a fun experience!)
Student Council hosts everything from semi-formal dances to Spirit Week to Dancing with the Vikings, as well as other events that raise money for our yearly charity of choice. The club meets bi-weekly on Wednesdays after school (more frequently around Spirit Week and dances).
The Executive Board and Class Officers each consist of a President, Vice-President, Secretary, and Treasurer. Elections for these positions are held in May of the preceding school year for the next year's sophomore, junior, and senior classes.
Each class also has a group of Senators who represent their class at Student Council meetings and all Student Council sponsored events. Elections for Class Officers and Senators for the freshman class are held each year in late September or early October. Students must abide by the By-Laws of the organization.
