Student voice is integral to the strong community at Paul Penna DJDS. Twice a year, the student body participates in elections to determine the student leadership. The Student Council consists of a president, vice-president and class representatives. Student Council meets monthly with class reps in Grades 3-8 to plan initiatives for the whole school. The reps also advocate for various privileges for the student body and plan fun days and programs. In addition to fostering leadership skills and creativity, Council members greatly benefit from working with students in other classes.
