Student Council

Student Council is an organization of students and faculty moderators that work for the general welfare of the school by promoting school morale, spirit, and cooperation between the student body, the faculty, and the administration. The purpose of the student council is to give QCISD students the opportunity to undertake leadership roles within the school community and to enhance the quality of student life by acting as a “voice” in administrative decisions and planning. Two key activities organized by the Student Council are the Blood Drive and Red Ribbon Week. The Student Council members play a very important role in every school: they help share students’ ideas, interests, and concerns with the teachers and principal, they help the students raise funds for school wide projects, they assist the community when they are in need of aid. Thus, Student Council membership will help our students become responsible and active members of the community.
