Student Council Mission Statement 
Student Council is composed of 4th and 5th grade students, elected by their peers in a democratic process, to represent their class within the school community.
 
Their goal is to learn the democratic process to keep students, the principal, teachers, and staff informed of each others' ideas, needs and opinions.
 
Student Council will provide assistance to other groups within the school family.  Student Council members will be taught leadership and speaking skills as training to be leaders in the future.
 
Student Council members' task is to be the representative body by which issues can be brought forth and collaboratively resolved.  Their goal is to work to improve the school community and be a reflective image of an institution of exemplary standards and goals.
 
Student Council Vision
 
The vision of the Monroe Student Council is to provide assistance to other established groups and/or associations within our school family.  We intend to help each student to mature into a successful student leader by teaching leadership concepts.  Our desire is to inspire each student to use this valuable experience as training for the future.  They will be our leaders of the future--capable of making critical decisions.  They shall represent our school community and their families with integrity, reponsibility, and honor.  Each student will also hold a 3.0 Grade Point Average or better.
