Student Council

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 to build school spirit.

Student council students design and carry out plans for:

  • Homecoming events
  • School pep fests
  • Dress up days
  • December Events & Holiday Ball
  • Charity drives
  • March Madness
  • Prom
  • Dog fest

The Student Council is made up of students who care about BSM and everyone in it; they bring students together to make BSM a better place.

The Benilde-St. Margaret’s junior high student council is comprised of elected representatives who meet weekly 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. This year JH representatives will serve on a larger student council body with the Senior High Students.

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 students in need) through a very successful (and delicious!) annual bake sale. 

Junior high students may run for officer positions in mid-September. 

Student council meetings are held during advisory on Wednesdays.


Senior High Advisers: 
Cami Dahlstrom
Mike Johnston
Katherine Johnson

Time Commitment:
The student council meets during homeroom weekly and occasionally meets before or after school. 

During events, student council members are expected to be present and active in running the various activities.
