Student government is a group of non-elected students from all grade levels that work hand in hand with elected officials. Student Council is comprised of a Freshman Class Board, Sophomore Class Board, Junior Class Board, and Senior Class Board. The Student Council President, Vice President, and Student Representative to the School Board are leaders of Student Council in its entirety and class elected officials (consisting of a Class President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary, and Senate) are leaders of their respective Class Boards. The Class Boards break out in their own class sub-groups for class specific events and projects.Student Council runs all-school events such as Homecoming, Frosh/Soph Formal, Prom, Candy Grams, Data-Match, and all governmental affairs for ETHS.Who can run for office?
Any student who is interested in making a positive difference in their class and at ETHS is encouraged to run for office. Elected officials have greater responsibilities and time commitments than general members. Elections for the Sophomore-Senior classes are held in the spring prior to your reigning year. Freshman elections are held in September.
The Class Board is a group of students representing their class in government and spirit, there is a Class Board for each grade level: 9, 10, 11 and 12. Each Class Board is run by their class elected officials: President, Vice-President Treasurer, Secretary, and Senate. Each Class Board will be in charge of a large school event (Prom, Homecoming, Frosh/Soph Formal, etc.), a class community service project, school, and class initiatives of their choosing as well as be the voice and link to the administration for their class. There are teacher sponsors for each class board.Elected Positions
Looking for a student that presides over Student Council meetings, and is also is interested and able to be the main voice for his or her class. This student needs to be a natural leader both in the classroom and in their clubs and activities. We are looking for a dynamic person that wants to promote positive change and help their class be the best they can be.
The Vice-President assists the President in being a leader for their class and needs to be able to reach out to all different groups of students within their grade level. The VP also presides over meetings in the Presidents' absence.
The Treasurer will be in charge of all fundraisers, budgeting, and accounting for their class events. This person needs to be trustworthy, good with numbers, good with Microsoft Excel and have general problem-solving skills.
We are seeking detail-oriented students that are organized and will help their class officials stay on task and on time. If you are interested in being a part of student government but want a slightly more “behind the scenes” leadership role, this is the job for you.
