Student Council Campaigns Allow Students To Practice Marketing Themselves
During our student council elections, candidates learn how to market themselves. This is a valuable lesson to learn early on. For our middle school students, their first part-time job may be just a few years away. Later on, they’ll use their new marketing skills to make their college applications stand out to their dream schools and eventually, to land their first professional job. Elections present the perfect opportunity for students to think about what makes them an appealing candidate to their fellow middle schoolers and present persuasive talking points that garner a positive response. This is a highly valuable ability that students won’t forget.
Student Council At R-MA Allows Students To Develop Planning Skills
Student council members at R-MA are awarded responsibilities that enable them to practice their organizational and planning skills. These include organizing dances, field days, and other events that occur throughout the year. Middle schoolers get to practice their time-management, prioritization, and leadership abilities and then, enjoy seeing a successful result at the end – their peers having fun at the event they’ve put together. Nearly any career path that students will pursue requires them to use their planning skills to some extent – particularly if they’re striving towards a future working in a managerial or executive position.
