Student Senate

Student Senate is comprised of 2 student representatives from each classroom in grades 3-6.  These elected voices represent the ideas, needs, and input of their classmates.  The 16 students and adult advisors gather for a breakfast meeting monthly (and do additional outside work) to plan and lead projects that promote school spirit, address student issues, and work with outside agencies to involve Green Street School in caring for our larger community.

Senate Expectations:

  1. Senators must attend meetings.  Meetings will be held Thursday mornings from 7:45 - 8:05 AM.  Being on Senate is a commitment.  Unless a child is absent from school that day, they are expected to attend all meetings.

  2. Senators are responsible for sharing information discussed during the meetings with their classes.

  3. Senators need to bring concerns of their classes to the meetings.  At times the senators will be responsible for surveying, recording, and returning the results of the survey back to the Student Senate. 

  4. Senators should be willing to sacrifice recesses at times to work on Student Senate projects. 

  5. Senators who receive a Major infraction during the school year will be dismissed from the Senate.
