Student Advisory Council is a new group at Holman this year.  This is a group to help students have a voice.  Students have a lot of ideas to make their school better and we wanted to create a group that could communicate those ideas to teachers and administration.

Each advisory in 6th,  7th and 8th grade chooses one student based on leadership skills .  Students can talk to the council member in their advisory and can make suggestions.   There are around 40 – 45 kids in the Student Advisory  Council.  Mrs. Rainwater and Mr. Changer sponsor 6th grade students, Mrs. Kasicki sponsors  7th grade and Mrs. Dietz and Mrs. Neal sponsor 8th grade students.

At the beginning of each month each grade level picks topics to take back to their advisory.  Then the advisories provide groups with realistic ideas for change.  For instance, 7th grade has tried to change the policy on student phones at school.  8th grade suggested opening the school store during breakfast.
Then, once a month, 2 reps meet with our administrators and take the suggestions that students have made during the Student Advisory Council meetings to the administrators.  Dr. Schnatmeier, Dr. Moran, Ms. Krawczyk listen to the ideas and make decisions based on student wishes and policies.
We’ve met with administration once and now the school store is open once a week during breakfast!  6th and 7th grade talked about making changes to the electronics policies but no changes have been made to those policies yet.
Stay tuned to see what great things Student Advisory Council does for you!
