Five students are elected to a Student Council each year. Student government gives students a chance to exercise leadership, practice public speaking skills and develop writing ability. Students are required to submit a draft of their platforms prior to campaigning. The election process gives the school a forum to exchange ideas about respect, discipline and tolerance between students and faculty.
Among the ideas emerging from the Student Council have been a Craig High School newspaper, a big brother-big sister support group for 9th and 10th graders, talent shows, a school dance and a principal's honor roll. One of the objectives of the Student Council is to engage students in the larger community, for example by volunteering in a local soup kitchen or collecting donations for community organizations. The Student Council has become an important voice for High School students and will continue to work toward creating a sense of school pride and spirit.
