Student Council

The Student Council was established to give LPS students the fullest possible exposure to the fundamentals of democracy. Students are involved in an electoral process similar to that of our government. At the beginning of each school year, students conduct campaigns and run for office. The goal of Student Council is to foster leadership, independence, initiative and enthusiasm.

In addition to bake sales, community service projects and theme dress-up days, Student Council also sponsors events that enable students to develop and cultivate social skills in a safe and fun environment. These after school or evening activities include theme dances or movie nights. High School Student Council additionally plan an annual prom which open to any High School student in grades 9 -12.
