Mater Christi Student Council

Our Mater Christi School Student Council is an elected group of middle school students who take on leadership positions in the school each year. Under the guidance of Assistant Principal, Mr. Kiante Jones, the members of the student council make a commitment to work both for the benefit of Mater Christi School and in the service of those in need. Core members and sub-committees work to organize social and extra-curricular activities, investigate and choose charitable organizations to support and educate the student body about each organization chosen.

Students involved in student council learn to work with peers and adults to create an exceptional school environment and to make a difference in the world around them. The leadership skills developed during student council give students a voice and the knowledge that they can make a difference.
