The purpose of the St. Thomas Aquinas Student Council is to carry out the mission statement of the school, while at the same time raising funds and providing fun activities for the benefit of the school and the community. The Student Council is committed to providing the student body with leadership opportunities to improve the school, as well as a means to serve the community in which they exist. Whether that event is the annual Easter Basket Collection for the day-care center in Bridgeport run by Sister Therese Tremblay, or a "casual day" in support of a particular local charity, the council’s mission is to encourage student leadership through various acts of service.
Recently, the Student Council has helped organize the following events:
- Peanut buter and jelly drive to benefit a local food bank
- Book drive to donate school supplies to the victims of Hurricane Harvey
- "Pink Pledge" dress down day for breast cancer awareness month
The Student Council of St. Thomas Aquinas School is comprised of six incoming 8th grade board members who are elected by students in the 3rd through 7th grades. In addition, each homeroom, at the start of the new school year, elects a representative and an alternate to bring their ideas to the weekly board meetings. Student Council meets monthly to collaborate with each other as well as the faculty moderators to develop habits of good citizenship and to contribute to the growing sense of school spirit within the St. Thomas Aquinas community.
