At Maplewood Intermediate School, the newly elected student council is settling into their new positions and getting down to work.

“They are the eyes and ears of the student body and I value their opinions,” said Dr. D'Elia of this year's group. “I like to get their feedback from a students’ perspective about what's going on and areas to improve on.” As with our other schools, student council members have specific jobs that they are responsible for. “I help at the school store,” said treasure Morgan Fulcher. “I count the money each day and make sure everything is put away when we close.” President Dylan Long has been busy helping to organize a fundraiser for the Ronald McDonald House. “We have been collecting all kinds of supplies that they need,” said Dylan. “Everything from cereal to soap.”  If anyone has a question about what happens at student council meetings, Abigail Brosnan is the person to ask. “As secretary I take the minutes of our meetings and keep the records.”

The Maplewood student council members for the 2015-2016 school year are as follows: Morgan Fulcher- Treasurer (5th Grade), Gavin Fisch- Vice President (4th Grade), Dylan Long- President (5th grade), Abigail Brosnan- Secretary (4th grade), and Anthony Verola- Historian (5th grade).
