Student Council - Senior High
The Benilde-St. Margaret’s senior high student council is made up of elected student representatives from each grade who work together to plan and execute school-wide events. Student council students design and carry out plans for Homecoming events, school pep fests, dress up days, charity drives, and a number of other after-school events such as the March Madness student/teacher basketball game and Dogfest. The Student Council is made up of students who care about BSM and everyone in it; they bring students together and make BSM a better place.
Time Commitment: The student council has homeroom together and meets monthly either before or after school and occassionally over the lunch hour. During events, student council members are expected to be present and active in running the various activities.

Student Council - Junior High
Advisers: Amy Jo Hyde
Co-Adviser: Adam George
The Junior High Student Council is comprised of elected officers and homeroom representatives who meet monthly to plan parties and service projects. They organize three themed parties per year, featuring a DJ dance, games, crafts, fun contests, and sports/games in the gym. Past service projects have included food/clothing drives for Prism, Mobile Loaves and Fishes, The Crisis Nursery, and the Guatemala mission trips. The Junior High Student Council also raises funds for the Junior High Angel Fund (which benefits junior high student in need) through a very successful (and delicious!) annual bake sale.
Junior high students may run for officer positions in mid-September. They may also have an opportunity to serve on the Student Council as a homeroom representative.
Student council meetings are held during Wellness Time approximately once per month.
