Student Council

The Leicester High School Student Council is the voice of the students in our school. The members are here to address any problems or issues that students have and to help create a safe, respectful, and fun environment. The Student Council wants to make school as enjoyable as possible for everyone, so please feel free to ask or tell us about anything.

Right now the Student Council is looking great! With advisors Ms. Belhumeur and Ms. St. John, we are up for any challenge. We want to try some new things this year and are open to any new ideas. If you have any suggestions you would like to make, or if you would like to help out, feel free to speak with any Student Council member or advisor.

Requirements for Participation
  • Meet the minimum MIAA academic requirements for participating in extra curricular and co-curricular activities (sports, clubs, organizations, etc.). At Leicester, this means passing at least 3 out of 4 classes per semester.
  • Attendance at all regular S.C. meetings both during and after school. Regular meetings will be twice a month. These meetings will be announced and given to you in schedule form ahead of time. Special meetings will be necessary for certain events. Official membership does not begin until a student has attended four meetings. Members with more than three unexcused absenses will be put on probation. The next unexcused absence will result in the removal of that member from the Student Council.
  • Each S.C. member is obligated to do five (5) hours of community service per semester for a total of ten (10) hours per year.
