Student Council

Denver’s student council is comprised of twelve classroom representatives (from 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade) and seven to ten elected board members. The purpose of this group is best summed up in the club’s motto: Student Service and School Spirit.

Student council service is completed through whole-school activities such as the 2017 Shoe Drive that was held for victims of a hurricane and in the collection of over 100 blankets for the Lancaster Humane League. When members of the board learn about a specific Denver family in need of encouragement, the council also provides private donations or gifts.

As far as school spirit, it is the Denver council that determines monthly spirit days, dress-up themes, and an occasional all-school activity such as painting rocks to beautify the building’s flower garden or an all-school holiday celebration prior to winter break. Nothing says “fun” more than a room filled with 500 children singing holiday tunes!

In addition to spirit and service, Denver’s Student Council provides those students, who have demonstrated leadership potential, the opportunity to develop skills related to leading others. For example, board members are required to host adult visitors, introduce new students to the school, and make speeches in front of the entire student body. It’s impressive what these young kids can do when given the opportunities!
