About Us


Student Council 2015-2016

Peirce Student Council is a service and leadership organization for students in grades 3-8.  Students are nominated and elected to participate in this after school program that meets once a week from 3-4 p.m. Student Council representatives are elected by their peers at the beginning of the school year.
Each elected student representative was asked to collect signatures from faculty and staff members, create a campaign poster, and write/present a speech to his/her classmates. Each Student Council member must remain in good standing and uphold the Student Code of Conduct and Ethics within CPS, Helen C. Peirce School of International Studies, and posses the ideals of the International Baccalaureate Learner Profile and Attitudes.
Student Council is the voice for all students at Peirce. They bring suggestions from their peers to weekly meetings where we discuss concerns and ideas. Student Council is also a part of the “Me to We” Campaign through We Free the Children/WE Day. Students focus on local and global issues that children and adults face on a day to day basis. Each academic school year, we focus on one local and one global issue that the students are passionate about making a change in.
Student Council Representatives are also our school ambassadors for many events held here at Peirce. From welcoming guests to Open Houses to assisting friends and family at Math and Science Night, our Student Council Representatives are there to create an inviting environment to all who enter our school!
