High School Student Council Gives Back To The Community

Have you ever wondered about the role of a school’s student council? Giving back to the community is just one of the many important functions a student council plays in shaping young people to develop into excellent citizens and leaders.

During the February winter break, members of the Cambridge High School Student Council worked diligently to create five fleece tie blankets. The blankets were made with cheerful vibrant colors and crafted with care. The students personally delivered them to Cambridge Square residents in early March. The residents truly appreciated the thoughtful, beautiful, and functional gifts.

In late February, the Cambridge High School Student Council organized a food drive, spearheaded by the council’s president, Alice Roosevelt. Students in grades 7-12 were encouraged to bring non-perishable food items to be donated to the “Loaves of Fishes” food pantry to help bolster their food supply during the current shelter in place. There was a competitive spin on the drive by challenging each grade level in collecting the most. The eighth-grade class emerged as the winners by collecting 78 food items.

Alice Roosevelt stated, "The generosity demonstrated by our students is truly appreciated, and our Student Council sends a virtual thank you to all who participated."

This student-driven project supports the district’s strategic plan.
