It’s finally here! The 2016-2017 school year, and with a new school year comes new opportunities. Things like joining school clubs or sports teams, and what was that other thing? Oh yeah, running for MYP Advisory Council representative.
The MYP Advisory council is a group of students elected from each leadership class that present a range of ideas directly to the directors of the MYP. At the beginning of the year each leadership class in MYP held elections, and one student was elected from each class. These students came together to form this unique council. This is a great way for students to directly communicate with administration, so that MYP reaches its full potential. This council allows students to make school a place that they enjoy coming to everyday. The great thing about this council being comprised of students is that the administration finally get to hear our point of view on the things our school does. This council gets to decide things like what other sports teams should be added, fundraiser ideas, school dance themes and much more.
As far as accomplishments thus far in the year, the MYP Advisory is still very new and not to mention small, but just because they’re small doesn’t mean that they don’t have big plans. For example, the council has been together for almost a month now and already they have planned an awesome homecoming dance. Another thing that this council has given us a homecoming week, which allows to express our individuality in a new way everyday. Students that are port of the council think this is fun too. According to eighth grader Kaiytlen Cyrenowitz, “I think that the MYP Advisory Council is a great way for the student body to be involved in some of the schools decisions”
This is an exciting new change for our school and way for our students at Imagine to make a mark. Good luck, counselees- we can’t wait to see what you accomplish.
