Student Council

The St. Rose of Lima School Student Council shares leadership responsibility as it develops activities to build school spirit and spearheads efforts to encourage students to serve the school and community.  

How It Works

  • Students from grades six and seven campaign for offices on Student Council.

  • Elections are held in May to select officers for the following year.

  • At the beginning of the school year class elections are held in grades one to six to elect a classroom representative to Student Council.

  • These representatives function as a liason between their class and Student Council, communicating ideas and plans between the two groups.

  • In this way, younger students learn leadership skills by watching the elected officers and participating in the planning of many activities


What We Do

  • Student Council joins PALS to conduct the opening prayer assembly each day, being responsible for flag salute, leading the school in a patriotic song and leading our morning prayer.

  • Student council members also make afternoon announcements before dismissal.

  • They share the task of trash patrol, safety patrol, and recycling collection with the PALS group.

  • Along with these duties, Student Council organizes and runs pep rallies each trimester, coordinates activities for Red Ribbon Week in October and Catholic Schools Week in January.

  • They run the Halloween Pumpkin Carving contest in October and help with the Haunted House at the Halloween Festival, the CandyGrams sale in February, and the “visit from a leprechaun” in March.

  •  It is the responsibility of the current Student Council to assist with the election and inauguration of the incoming officers, learning about the responsibilities inherent in our democratic system of government.


All these activities serve to build school spirit and community while engendering leadership skills.



Each Friday, St. Rose of Lima School students and staff celebrate mass as a community, bringing them closer to each other and to God.

This allows students to truly be a part of the service, as each grade gets a chance to host a mass. It also provides a special reflection opportunity. We focus on devoting ourselves in a special way to our relationship with God and the healthy and holy life we want to share with each other.

We encourage our students actively and joyfully bring faith to life and life to faith to achieve the school’s mission, “Enter to Learn, Go Forth to Serve.” Motivated by the example of Jesus Christ, community service is to be approached as a privileged opportunity for growth and personal service. We work to prepare our students for global citizenship with a continuous focus on character development, using Jesus as our model.  Throughout daily classes, activities help our students understand and acquire the habits of mind that develop integrity, responsibility, initiative, and perseverance.

Students also participate in special faith-forming activities, including sacraments, counseling, and retreats
