Safety Patrol is a wonderful leadership opportunity for our fifth graders. These students are trained by the Santa Clara police department to assist with our traffic in the morning. These students are in charge of keeping the traffic flowing safely and helping students as they exit their vehicles. This is an important job in keeping our students and community safe. Students will learn teamwork, leadership, safety guidelines, and more. Students are able to apply at the beginning of the school year and parent permission is required.
Tech Squad is a leadership youth development program that prepares and supports students in establishing and maintaining technical support for fellow students and teachers. Members of the Eisenhower Squad participate in weekly meetings where they learn about the many aspects of running a help desk. Topics of discussion range from software usage and hardware repair to operating systems, networking, and other troubleshooting components for computers. Tech Squad members respond to teacher requests for technical support for the classroom and work to service the various needs around our school community. For more information contact Mrs. Slimak.
Student Council provides opportunities for students to become involved as selected representatives and gain experience by participating actively in the political process of a democratic society on campus. Student Council plans school spirit days and organizes charity fundraising efforts. Leadership roles offer students opportunities to work with social justice initiatives, explore ethical decision-making, and embrace diversity while also appreciating their role in a multi-cultural and global society. Fundraising drives have included collecting monies for a memorial paving stone to honor fallen soldiers, Japanese tsunami victims, and the One Million Lights Foundation to provide solar powered lights to impoverished rural communities in India. Monthly spirit assemblies are also planned to involve the entire student body to celebrate student leadership contributions and to recognize outstanding student accomplishments on campus.
