Students will meet weekly to plan spirit days, general school activities and assist teachers/other clubs as needed. Mr. McPhee and Mrs. Calobrisi may want to utilize them in other ways as well.
In the past students have volunteered at Open House, Family Fun nights sponsored by the PTO and 4th grade School Tours. Student Council members have been an integral part of the McCarthy community, through their volunteer work within our building. The goal is to have an equal number of students from the 5th and 6th grade representing their peers.
At least one student from each homeroom is encouraged to participate, however, as many students who want to participate will be accepted. Students will be required to participate in at least 4 hours of volunteer time throughout the school year. Examples: (not limited to just these)
- Help on Open House to direct parents where to go.
- Sell candy/items at events such as the school play and McCarthy Idol.
- Volunteer for a time slot at Family Fun nights to help families and the PTO with their events.
