As Glenwood Student Council Advisor for fourteen years,  I have had the great opportunity to work with our fantastic, spirited upper grade Glenwood Gators. Our student council is open to all 3rd -5th graders who take their academics and citizenship seriously. Students interested in joining student council can run for office and learn how elections and meetings are run.  Student council offers our students leadership opportunities to help at school, provide information to others, and interact with fellow students, teachers, parents, and administrators. Best of all, our student council members develop a deep sense of school spirit  and community responsibility by participating in annual charity events such as Toys for Tots, and the Manna Food Bank. Glenwood special events like Red Ribbon Week, Monster Mash, and  Earth Day, help to make student council a busy, fun, and generous social club.

    Let's Hear What Our Student Council Members Have to Say!
