The Houston High School Student Council is a group of elected members of each grade from 7 through 12.  Five members are elected each May to serve the following year. In order to be considered, a student may be nominated by a fellow student, or may nominate oneself. Once on the ballot, the five students who receive the most votes in each grade become the Student Council for the following year. Being on Student Council allows members to grow in their leadership, communication, and collaboration skills.

Each year, our students in the 8th grade have the opportunity to travel to our nation’s capital for a guided tour of this historic city and further enrich their understanding of our government and history. Our annual DC trip usually takes place in October. Please see Mrs. Maier, Mr. Platfoot or Mrs. Poeppelman if you are interested.
