The students involved with student council are called on throughout the year to be role models and assist with additional tasks to enhance the students’ experience at St. Hubert School.
YEARBOOK COMMITTEE (grades 6 - 8)
The yearbook is a colorful chronicle of student life at St. Hubert School. Each year, students may apply to assist parent volunteers in creating the yearbook.
The yearbook begins with a dedication page. In the fall, student council members nominate ten teachers or staff members for this dedication. The entire eighth grade class then votes for whom the yearbook will be dedicated to that year.
Grades preschool through eighth grade each have a section of the yearbook. Kindergarteners are asked to draw a self-portrait that is juxtaposed with their class pictures. Graduating eighth grade portraits are shown next to a picture of them from the year they began attending school.
The yearbook ends with a page showing how faith is celebrated and lived at St. Hubert School.
YOUNG INVENTORS FAIR (grade 4)
Students work individually to create a new invention that will benefit someone they know. Students are taught the process of coming up with ideas, verifying that their invention idea doesn’t currently exist, design display boards and make a prototype or working model of their idea.
The evaluation process celebrates students for their creativity, originality, problem solving, and written expression. The St. Hubert School Fair is an exciting event, honoring the creativity of students in a way they will always remember.
