Student Council is a student organization that helps develop the leadership skills that are so important in a student’s future. Student Council is also a service organization that emphasizes care for the student body, our Parish of St. Mary, and the community around us and beyond. We have done many, many wonderful things in the past and will continue to do so. Some of these activities are:
Red Ribbon Week (anti-drug/bullying awareness)
**Thanksgiving Drive for the School on Wheels in La Grange**
Student Council is having their Annual Thanksgiving Drive. If every student brings in at least two non-perishable items or two paper products, we have a wonderful offering to give to the St. Barbara’s Food Pantry. The Sisters of St. Joseph sponsor this food drive along with Student Council. We will be collecting food from November 11th-November 20th. We will deliver the food on November 23rd after school. We thank you for your generosity and many kindnesses.

Student Council had their first Pep Rally of the year! Cheerleaders,Soccer Players, and Football Players were celebrated and cheered on to their final games of the season. Our Spirit Commissioner, Keely Mahoney (also a cheerleader), lead the festivities.
Beginning Wednesday, November 12th, Student Council will begin it’s Annual Thanksgiving Drive. Each classroom is assigned a family from Nazareth Academy’s School on Wheels. This school helps poorer families learn English and other daily skills needed to manage in their jobs and other needs. Past teachers of St. Mary, Srs. Rosemary and Michelle lead this drive. All non-perishable items (canned goods, boxed items, toiletries, paper goods,etc.) and gift cards and monetary donations (for turkey and the perishable part of dinner) are welcome. The families we help are very grateful for the gifts St. Mary families provide.
