This past Friday and Saturday, Peirce Student Council played a vital role in the centennial festivities. On Friday our Student Council was part of leading the Peirce Student Pledge with our 8th grade student reps. Our three eighth grade girls were also given the honor of unveiling the honorary street name: “Helen C. Peirce Centennial 2015” on Bryn Mawr Ave!
On Saturday afternoon, 25 Student Council Members came back to school to be a part of our community open house! They helped welcome visitors, direct them to classrooms, answered questions, and even shared information about the beautiful artwork collection in our school.
Attention all Student Council Members! There was a typo on your permission slip for STEAM Night this week. On the permission slip it stated the event was on Thursday night. It is supposed to say WEDNESDAY! STEAM Night is this Wednesday, October 28th from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Sorry for any confusion!
In regards for our “Scare for Hunger” trick or treating event! We need to have at least 10 Student Council members to commit to the event. Please let Mrs. Graney or Miss Hopkins know as soon as you can if you are able to attend. Also, we are looking for parents to come along with us to help with the cans and making sure you are safe! Please have your parents email Miss Hopkins at KLHopkins@cps.edu if they are able to attend!
Please join us at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 15th in the Peirce School Auditorium/Gymnasium for the Installation of the 2015-2016 Student Council Class Representatives!

Are you running for Peirce Student Council this year? Do you have your speech prepared for Friday? Below are a few guiding questions to ask yourself while you write your speech. Please also think about what IB learner profiles you possess as an individual. What PYP and MYP attitudes of the IB do you feel most represent who you are as a person and leader of the school?
Best of luck to all students who have been risk takers to run for Peirce Student Council.
1. Why should your classmates vote for you? What makes you stand out than all the others?
2. What are some local and global issues that your generation see as a problem that needs to be addressed? (hunger, child abuse, domestic violence, fresh water, education, etc…)
3. How will you help your classmates get involved in school wide events? (weekly student council updates, talk with peers about concerns or questions and bring them to our meetings, etc…)
4. What it will mean to you if your classmates elected you as their representative for student council.
Miss Hopkins and Mrs. Graney were busy painting posters this past Tuesday! Student Council applications will be available on Friday, September 18th from your homeroom teacher! Speeches and elections will be on Friday, October 2nd! Be the change you wish to see in the world!
We are super excited to have a new blog where we can update you on our weekly happenings in Student Council! Please check back in September for our full launch of our blog!
