    What is the purpose of the student council?

    The purpose of the student council is to give students an opportunity to develop leadership by organizing and carrying out school activities and service projects. In addition to planning events that contribute to school spirit and community welfare, the student council is the voice of the student body.


    Why join the student council?

    The TAMS Student Council will consist of students in Grades 7 & 8 grade. Members must complete an application and meet the eligibility requirements. 

    We are looking for some dynamic, enthusiastic, and committed Middle School students to join the Student Council for the 2023 -2024 school year. Qualities necessary for any member of the student council are:

    • Leadership skills – Are you willing to lead committees and be a representative for your class?

    • Creative – Are you able to think of new and exciting activities and fundraisers for the student council?

    • Communicative –Are you able to share ideas with other student council members, your class, and all of the middle school?

    • Team player – You could work with the SOAR group to generate ideas and organize events for the Student Council.

    • Responsibility – You may be responsible for running activities throughout the school and must be reliable.

    • Commitment –This is a year-long activity and if you volunteer now, you will be expected to come to all meetings for the remainder of the year. There will be at least 9 meetings throughout the year after school, so if this does not fit your schedule, please do not volunteer.

    Benefits of participating:

    Students should consider this an extracurricular activity because it helps to build character, leadership, decision-making, organization skills, and responsibility.

    When & Where Does The Club Meet?

    The meetings will take place in Ms. Dodson’s room. Ms. Dodson’s advisory will be made up of the core group of the student council. There will also be advisory representatives from each of the 7th and 8th-grade advisory classes. Both groups will meet at least once a month.  Students will be notified about meetings via the student announcements and email.


    Members of the TAMS student council will meet during the Advisory period and are expected to attend and actively participate in the meetings.



    Members of TAMS student council will brainstorm, plan, and implement various elements of the TAMS SOAR program. You are expected to actively participate in group discussions, brainstorming sessions, and implementation of tasks. Students must be involved in at least one activity per quarter to be considered an active member.



    Know our school expectations!!! - Student council members should demonstrate a firm grasp of the hallway, restroom, and cafeteria expectations, in addition to their teachers’ classroom expectations. Students should know and live out our school motto: Strive for success, Observe safety, Act with integrity, and Respect all.


    Participation in the implementation of our SOAR Lessons - Student council members should feel comfortable participating in and presenting lessons alongside other team members under the supervision of a SOAR teacher committee member. These lessons include “refresher” lessons in the hallway, restroom, cafeteria, assembly lessons, and bus lessons.


    Media Production - Student council members will help create videos that will highlight our hallway, cafeteria, and classroom behaviors. Students will also help create videos/photos that highlight our students' accomplishments.


    Public Relations - Students will help create and design signs, posters, and banners to promote the PBIS program within our school.


    Student voice - As a member of the student council, you are the pulse of what students around the building are saying about our school and SOAR program. You will collect data via surveys to provide team feedback on the effectiveness of our program. This data will be used to make any necessary changes.


    Special Projects - Our members are often chosen participants in special school-wide events and projects, such as SOAR assembly set up and Kindness Day.
