Student Council

Student council is one of the most important and demanding organizations at Kesling Middle School.  They are a service group which helps their school and community.  Meetings are the second and fourth Mondays of every month until 3:30 in the library.  In 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2006 Kesling’s Student Council has been recognized by the Indiana Association of Student Councils.  Club sponsor, Mrs. Ault, was recognized as the 2005- 2006 Student Council Advisor of the Year.  Any student at Kesling may belong to Student Council.  Students are required to be active participants to receive special recognition at the end of the school year.  Student Council manages the concession stand for all home games at Kesling.  This keeps us very busy!  Some of our main activities throughout the year include:

  1. Fall garage sale – Money raised will be donated to the Kesling music department and used for two high school scholarships.
  2. Spirit Week
  3. Hosting a fall leadership workshop for our district
  4. Hosting a Fun Night on October 28th
  5. Food Drive in December
  6. Carnation Sale in February for Valentine’s Day
  7. Hosting the 8th grade dance
  8. Soy – Dusk to Dawn Teams in May

It looks like another exciting year for the students at Kesling Middle School!
