Beckman Elementary School has a very active Student Council, leading the student body with both school spirit and community service. Under the leadership of officers Kateland Alvarez (president), Xavier Ojeda (vice President), Cassidy Alvarez (secretary) and Laura Torres (treasurer), the students have organized a recycling program that collects cans, bottles and paper from all the classrooms on a regular schedule. Student Council has organized and led School Spirit Days such as Purple Day, Crazy Hat Day, Pajama Day, among others.
Beckman's Student Council has also served a leadership role in community service. Student Council led Beckman Elementary during the 2nd quarter with "Support Our Troops" with donations of hot cocoa and personal letters for the soldiers overseas, as well as the canned food drive for the Salvation Army in November. Considering the economic trouble our nation is in at the moment, it is wonderful to see our students working together to help one another.
April will again be Beckman's time to show the power of the penny with their support of Pennies for Patients 2012. Last year the school was able to collect over $2,000 and hope to raise even more funds for the Leukemia/Lymphoma Society this year.
