Student Senate

Student Senate is one of the largest clubs on campus and is focused on improving the environment for students and faculty.  Senate runs many school activities, including dances, pep assemblies, and spirit weeks.  Every Senate member is sorted into one of the six committees at the beginning of the school year based on their personalities and preferences.  Each committee has a student who is the “committee head.”  Leading the entire Senate are the junior and senior consuls.  Elections are held at the end of every school year for the holders of these two positions.  The senior consul is a senior, kind of like president of student Senate, and the junior consul is a junior student, who acts like the vice president of the club.  The elections every May also determine the upcoming junior high tribunes, who are seventh graders running for a position the next year.

The committees are as follows:

Dance Committee plans all school dances, excluding prom.  They set the dance theme, plan and make decorations, design tickets, and hire a DJ.  This committee is usually one of our busiest and the students have to dedicate time on the weekends to help set up for the dances.

Spirit Committee attends home games to support GCA athletics teams.  They also plan Spirit Weeks to get the students excited about a certain event, typically a dance or pep assembly.  

Promotions Committee is in charge of advertising student activities and events.  They make posters and announcements to inform the students about upcoming events, such as dances, spirit weeks, and seasonal events.

Wellness Committee is devoted to improving the mental health of the GCA student body and staff.  In the past, this committee has organized suicide prevention activities and a kindness week.  They also reach out to injured students and staff and uplift their day with some candy and an encouraging note.

Thank You Committee is responsible for thanking all parent and teacher volunteers as well as making little treats for the teachers and staff throughout the year to let the teachers know we appreciate them more than just during teacher appreciation week.

Pep Assembly Committee plans the pep assemblies for the school during each athletic season.  The students in this committee are well known for being outgoing and spirited to entertain and engage the student body at pep assemblies.
