The Student Council at St. Athanasius represents the student body, grades four through eight. The Student Council consists of a President, President Elect, Secretary, Treasurer, two Publicity people, and Photographer and four homeroom representatives from each class. The President Elect is elected during his or her seventh grade year and the position is held until the following year when he or she becomes President. The candidates write speeches and once they are presented to the fourth through eighth grades, then an election is held. Only the fourth through eighth graders get to vote. Then those who wish to run for homeroom rep turn in a permission slip (which is required for all positions in Student Council) and their classmates vote for two reps. Mrs. Thompson, the music teacher at St. Athanasius, is the responsible adult who helps run the Student Council.
The Student Council sponsors many of the events held throughout the year to benefit different organizations. Every year, representatives go Angel Tree Shopping at the Jefferson Mall for a 13 or 14 year old in need. The Student Council prepares and serves a meal at the Ronald McDonald House; sponsors several out of uniform days a year, and raises money for scholarships to help eighth graders pay for Catholic High School. The fund raisers include a Walk-a-thon and candy sales. They also host the Talent Show.
The Student Council plays a large role at St. Athanasius. They help make every school year fun.
