Wallace StuCo hosts RPAC conference
The Wallace Student Council has been staying busy since the start of the school year.
Maywood recently hosted the Conference Student Council workshop. Fourteen schools make up the Republican Plains Activities Conference (RPAC); all 14 student councils squeezed into the Maywood gym for a morning of learning and fun.
The special speaker was the inspirational Mike Smith, a young man originally from Imperial, whose dream of helping others led him to start the now nation-wide group “Skating for Change.”
A representative from the Army National Guard also presented on leadership, drive, and passion for what you do.
The student councils discussed and presented ideas on how to improve their schools and communities before getting together to have lunch together.
Prior to the workshop, the Wallace Stu-Co has been busy with many other activities. The big events have been making buttons for parents night, helping out with Fall Festival and organizing Homecoming events.
Every year, Stu-Co organizes and runs the Fall Festival kids’ games in the park. The students are responsible for planning the games, ordering the prizes, setting up and running the games, and doing what they can to help kids enjoy the afternoon.
The Student Council also does all the planning and organizing for all of the Homecoming events. The events that they are responsible for are planning dress up days for junior and senior high school, overseeing hall decorations, putting on the pep rally and organizing and sponsoring the Saturday night dance.
Upcoming events for the Student Council include assisting the National Honor Society with babysitting during the parent-teacher conference, organizing activities for Red Ribbon Week, helping with the Veterans Day program, and putting on the annual Thanksgiving blood drive (the Wednesday before Thanksgiving).
The members of Stu-Co play a very important role in the many activities that take place in the school and they do a good job getting involved with the community.
