School President Ideas

Save

So the vote has been cast and you find yourself as the new school president. With this position comes great responsibility. As the school president, students are looking to you for change, social events and improvements. Focus your ideas on areas that students have complained about and on continuing events or affects they like.

Social Activities

  • Social activities in school are important. Students will be looking for your leadership to help keep the great events going while improving them or adding additional ones. Social activity ideas do not just have to focus on Friday night school dances after the game. Consider tailgate parties, movie nights and formal dinners with entertainment. Use the graphic art department to help with advertising and school music organizations for entertainment.

Charity Fundraising

  • Giving back to the community is a great way of promoting your school while helping the students you lead learn the value of community volunteers. Seek out charities that are looking for help and encourage students to attend. When organizing a charity event, always check with the school administration and legal adviser to ensure that there are no violations; rules and laws may vary.

Guest Speakers

  • Guest speakers and convocations are a useful way for the student council to promote discussions about current issues and problems within the community and school. Schools are always trying to help their students avoid drugs, alcohol and other harmful distractions. As the president of the school, focus on issues that you hear students talking about. Contact legal law enforcement, school alumni and chambers of commerce for guest speaker ideas.

School Efficiency

  • School presidential candidates promote themselves as being able to improve certain aspects of daily school life. These include extending lunch hours, longer breaks and changing rules. The chances of these happening are not likely. However, there are ways of making improvements.

    For example, one way to cut long lines and give students more time at lunch is to create areas that serve different items than the normal line. These include soup and salad bars, taco bars, potato bars and more. By offering options and establishing additional lines, you give students more time to eat and hang out with friends.
