Student Government

 

 

What is SGA?

The Student Government Association (SGA) is designed to foster leadership skills, encourage school spirit, and teach democratic principles among students. As a student-run organization that represents the entire student body, SGA allows students to express concerns and take a stand on important issues. SGA strives to lead by example in the areas of academics, extra-curricular activities, community service, school spirit, student events, and student-teacher relations. SGA members should be role models for other students, both in and out of the classroom. The SGA at Ernest Ward Middle School strives to provide an effective, enjoyable environment to bring about positive change for students.

The purpose of Student Government is to:

  •     Develop positive attitudes and to practice good citizenship

  •     Improve student/faculty relationships

  •     Improve school morale and general welfare

  •     Provide a forum for student expression

  •     Plan special events or projects

  •     Present students' ideas and concerns to the council

  •     Attend all student council functions

  •     Display proper behavior at all times
