STUCO End of Year Reflection

It was a busy year for STUCO! After electing a new executive council, we were busy for the rest of the year deciding Spirit Days, fundraising for Heifer International, putting together a Bike Safety campaign, helping out with Book Week, organizing a Book Swap, and coming up with various ideas for Earth Week!

STUCO members also talked about their roles as school leaders with the second grade classes as part of their Social Studies unit on “Roles and Responsibilities”.

Mr. Kurth also came to give a talk about the possibility of organizing Meatless Mondays at the Gecko Grill in the future.

As the year comes to an end, we find ourselves reflecting on the fun that we’ve had and the lessons we’ve learned. It is also a bittersweet time of year since we are saying goodbye to fellow STUCO members.

Isaac, Xochi, and Mr. Callahan are all leaving SIS for other adventures. Isaac will be in Hong Kong, Xochi will go to Japan, and Mr. Callahan and his family are leaving for Doha! Lily and Betty will be staying at SIS but they will be in sixth grade next year!

Goodbye to STUCO 2016-2017! We wish everyone well in their future endeavors!

Inside a STUCO Meeting: Making a Video

Have you ever wondered, “What goes on in a STUCO meeting?” Today, we take you on the inside of a STUCO meeting.

One of the roles of STUCO is to effectively communicate information to students, teachers and parents. We work hard together planning, revising our ideas and filming videos to help share information. Below are pictures of our upcoming video about SIS Heroes artwork. Keep an eye out for creative and informative video…coming soon!

STUCO: Global Citizen Role Models

During the last assembly, STUCO took the stage to showcase how they are role models of global citizens at SIS. They gathered examples from throughout the year, showcasing pictures and sharing upcoming events as well. Some of the examples they shared were putting together a book swap, working with Dr. Knudsen and Mrs. Madonna to help students feel included, and our upcoming work with Promised Land to help children with disabilities.
