Student Trustee Report

Trustees received the Student Trustee Report that included:

“For February, all schools took part in activities for Black History month. Daily announcements were made in lieu of an assembly where various forms of art and music by Black artists would typically be played.

Over the last year, Assumption has been developing an ACE club to amplify and uplift Black students and community members. They have expanded and are constantly looking for ways to make the school community more inclusive. The ACE group goes to history classes to educate students on Black issues and they also serve as a portal for students to share their concerns.

Elections for both student council presidents and Student Trustee are approaching (both are taking place online). Applications for student council grade reps are also being considered virtually. Holy Trinity is using their social media platforms to sell the idea of joining council.

All schools have been conducting dress down and spirit wear days to boost morale and raise money.

Holy Trinity did a “Battle of the Grades” spirit week in place of the original March break. Similarly, St. Johns had a “Wellness Week” where they had walks, workouts, and positive messages spread on the daily.”
