The Student Government
The Alsion Montessori Middle School Student Government is an entirely student-run organization that liaises between students, and teachers and staff. As the official voice of the student body, the government can raise school-related issues, concerns and needs to instructors and administrators, and communicate any feedback to its constituents. The Student Government is also tasked with developing student events, fundraising for these and spearheading school-wide community meetings held twice every week. When the Early College High School who runs the school café is off for winter and spring breaks, the government is in charge of running a scaled-down version of the café.
In the past school year, aside from performing its daily duties, the Student Government has had a remarkable spate of achievements:
- Raised $1,000 towards the summer Ex-Term to Honolulu, Hawaii
- Made significant monetary and service contributions to the year-end Alsion Barbeque and Ultimate Game
- Funded the feed and bedding for the school livestock
- Increased number of social events
Elections are held every year to form the Student Government. Nominations are made; campaigns are mounted. All students participate in this democratic process. The positions in the government are
President. Leads and directs planning of student-funded events; leads community meetings; serves as main representative of the student body. Only a 9th grader can serve in this capacity.
