Peyton High School Student Council

The purpose of the Peyton High School Student Council (StuCo) is to act as a liaison between the student body and the administration and other student bodies within the Black Forest League and to increase school pride by connecting all students.  StuCO does this by sponsoring Homecoming, Spirit Weeks, and the Drive Smart Campaign.  Elections are held in May to elect officers for the following school year.  Class representatives are selected at class meetings at the beginning of the school year.

Students who wish to be involved in Student Council need to make a year-round commitment, be able to talk to people, and have school spirit.  Officers must have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 and class representatives must have a 3.5 cumulative GPA.  If you are eligible and interested in being a Student Council officer, listen to the announcements in April/May to see when the elections are coming up and then talk to the Student Council Sponsor.  You will need to prepare a speech and present it to the entire student body at an assembly in May.
