The Student Council has also purchased new equipment and materials for the school.
Students create ideas for fundraising and implement them by helping in the organization to promote their causes. "I was so excited to win,” said Student Council President Christopher Diaz. “It felt like it took forever to do my speech, the one thing I want to do is make a soccer field"
