Student Leadership

 Student Council

St Justin Student CouncilStudent Council officers are elected every year from grades 5-8.  They serve as liaisons for the school and are actively involved in leading a variety of student activities.  Some of their responsibilities include organizing spirit rallies, leading school-wide prayer services and masses, maintaining a comprehensive recycling program, publishing a school newspaper, and operating the “Snack Shack,” a snack bar that serves healthy treats once a week during recess. Serving on Student Council is a wonderful way for students to get involved, show school spirit, and develop leadership skills.
