    Seal with Student Council  Kids Council

    Each classroom nominates and votes on a President, Vice-President, and Secretary for their class. These students run for office just like real politicians – they

    must state their platform, make speeches, campaign, etc. Real polls are used for students to vote – students must show their voter registration card to the

    poll volunteer in order to vote.  Once winners in the classrooms are declared, the council meets with the principal of the school monthly to voice their

    opinions on improving the school. Prior to the meeting with the principal, the council leads weekly class meetings to determine topics of concern.

    North Carolina Science Olympiad’s elementary events were developed by North Carolina Master Elementary Teachers. The events align with the NC Standard

    Course of Study and what teachers are already doing in the classroom. Further, these events are well balanced between the various science disciplines,

    requiring knowledge of science facts, concepts, processes, skills and applications.  Students meet on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month.  Parents will

    need to pick up their child at 3:30.
