Below is your first look at a new endeavor that I am trying this year. It is an effort on my part to further connect with our students and give them a “louder” voice in our school community. Please take a look and share. There is more information to come. Thanks.
James H. Moran Middle School (JHMMS)
Student-Principal Advisory Council (SPAC)
Leadership Skills: SPAC members work on developing leadership skills to make positive changes at the JHMMS community.
The Student-Principal Advisory Council is open to any interested student in grades 6-8 who display responsibility, dedication to school, and leadership qualities. The SPAC meets on a monthly basis with the Principal in order to provide feedback, offer suggestions, receive information regarding upcoming events, discuss possible changes in school procedure and participate in a general conversation about education at the middle school level.
SPAC students are supportive of all school groups and activities. They contribute by helping groups such as Student Council and the Friends of Rachel Club, working in collaboration with these organizations and promoting kindness amongst students.
The meetings are usually held during the school day in the library/media center. Students are notified in advance of the meetings and may be permitted to miss class in order to attend. Students are responsible to complete any assignments that they may miss due to attending the meetings.
Interested students will have to fill out an application/permission slip prior to attending any meetings. Those forms will be made available on-line and in our main office.
