CLARK, NJ – A new Student Council Board was recently inducted at Saint John the Apostle School. Each June, the students in grades three through eight elect students to represent the student body. Officers include President, Vice President, Commissioner of School Spirit, School Historian, and Commissioner of Publicity, and Secretary.
After the September First Friday Mass during the first week of school, elected officers from June took an oath in front of the school community, to uphold the requirements of their perspective offices. The Saint John the Apostle Student Council meets several times a month. One of Council’s focusses is to raise money for various charities. “Historically, the Saint John the Apostle Student Council has raised thousands of dollars each school year for those in need,” said school principal, Dr. Deborah Egan, Ed. D. “Funds are 100% donated to charities selected by the Student Council Board members.”
Saint John the Apostle School is a faith-centered academic community based on the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. They are committed to serve all regardless of race, nationality or religion. To prepare students to be responsible adults in an ever-changing world, their goal is to focus on academic excellence as well as instill spiritual, moral and social values. Registration is ongoing.
