Student Council Reps Learn About Leadership

Student Council Reps attend Leadership Conference

On Oct. 14, 2015, eighth graders who are part of Middle School Student Council participated in a leadership conference at SUNY Oneonta in Oneonta. Attendees were Kyleigh George, Megan Harris, Alicia Grant, Taylor Nye, Molly Avolio Cheyenne Young, Ivy Buchanan and Claire Convis.

These students went to learn more about leadership and how to be a leader. They also learned that you don’t always have to be a leader. Instructors taught how to include people in group activities, such as name games, the "draw a house" game.

"We had a rock, paper, scissors competition and Kyleigh George won! 
We made new friends and exercised our social skills. During most of the the time we were divided into smaller groups, but in the end before we left we did some big group activities, including a game called country, city and highway driving, " said student council member Megan Harris.

"In that game we all stood on tarps and had to flip them over without stepping on the floor. We had a great lunch and dessert with ice cream. We had a great time and would love to go again."
