Student Council TCH 2023-24Student Council
Student Council members reflected on the things about their work this year that made them most proud.  Overwhelmingly, they felt best about the generosity of our community during the bake sale that they hosted at the sing-along in support of Meals on Wheels and MMUN.  “One lady even gave us $50 because we didn’t put prices on things, and she felt like that was what it was worth to support our causes!”
Thank you to all of you in our community who demonstrate to the children, through your actions, what it means to care about others.
