At Eisenhower, the Student Leadership Council is called The United Nations. Students in 4th – 8th grade serve as delegates. There is one elected delegate per homeroom, representing each country. Bi-weekly meetings are referred to as The General Assembly Meeting. The delegation has elected the President (8th Grader), the Vice President, and the Secretary-General.
Following the General Assembly, students report back to their countries, and get the opinions of their constituency.
Delegates are held to a high standard of excellence in academics, behavior, attendance, and service. The delegation will give back to the community through several community service projects, starting with a can food drive for the holiday season.
The goal of The United Nations is to build the leadership capacity of the students who participate and give VOICE to student concerns. At the heart of Eisenhower’s culture is the idea that we as a school is committed to involving all stakeholders in the process and the students are a huge part of that, after all they are the reason for our work.
