Student Council

The Student Council tradition at Rattan Elementary is that of a council of students that works throughout the year with the student body, faculty and the community through various services and service projects. The Student Council is comprised of 20 to 30 4th and 5th grade members. Students are elected through teacher recommendation, student votes, and applicant essay.

The Student Council at Rattan is a service organization. Student Council members have many opportunities to be involved with programs and activities that directly benefit the students, teachers and community. Some of the programs include organizing and working at school activities such as “movie nights”, making the announcements/ pledges during school, collecting and organizing canned goods during canned food drives and much more. In addition, we have monthly and sometimes bimonthly meetings after school that students are required to attend. Each Student Council Member is encouraged to take on leadership through service to others.

Fundraiser Transparency:

Students' Night Out is used as the Student Council Fundraiser. All monies are put back toward the students through items that benefit them here at Rattan Elementary. The student council committee members vote on what they want to spend the money on. Items previously purchased by student council include: microwaves in the cafeteria; sound system for the cafeteria to be used for assemblies, Students' Night Outs and the talent show; soccer goals on the play ground, playground balls and games and much, much more!
