What is Student Council?
Student Council is a student government at Homestead for fourth and fifth grade students. At the beginning of each year there is a Student Council election in 5th grade for the head positions. The positions are head boy, head girl, secretary, and treasurer. They are elected by all of fifth grade. Student Council consists of six different committees. The six committees are recycling, spirit, communications, box-tops/fundraising, kindness, and the outreach committee.
- Head Boy
- Head Girl
We are participating in Box Tops this year. Box Tops are a way for our schools to raise money. Each Box Top is worth 10 cents. The current Box Top count for October 30, 2018, is:

Please look at General Mills products and turn in all the Box Tops you find to your classroom. The winning grade level gets prizes!

We have started a recycling program at our school. We encourage everybody to recycle as much as possible. We need to save our environment. Here we can recycle glass and plastic cans, cardboard and paper. We know much of you already have recycling programs, but if you don't, we highly encourage you to help us save the environment.
Student Council Giving
Student council is donating $500 of its own money to the Make-a-Wish Foundation. Make-a-Wish is a non-profit organization founded in the United States. They arrange experiences for kids with life-threatening medical problems. There are four different categories the kids can choose from. They are: I want to be; I want to meet; I want to get; and I want to go.
