Student Council

Walt Whitman Student Council is composed of 4th and 5th graders that were voted by the third and fifth grade students. We also have third grade room representatives  that help us when we are planning and organizing our of different fundraisers.  We try to work together with the students to  create a wide variety of events during the course of the school year.   Some of our fundraisers that we have held this year are  selling of glow sticks for Halloween, selling candy canes in December and during Valentine’s day we sell pencils.   Money raised will go towards purchasing recess equipment for everyone to enjoy. We also raise money for the  The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s School & Youth campaign. We do this by having a hat week.  Towards the end of the school year a fun activity we do is our ABC countdown. Students love counting down the school year.  Please contact Mrs. Crooks or Mrs. Manley for more information about Whitman School’s Student Council.
