Principal's Message

December 2018

Hello all!!

My name is Miss Stone and I have the great pleasure in leading the Lewis Elementary Student Council this year! Student Council is comprised of 4th and 5th grade students who are leaders within their classrooms and in our school. The students involved in student council are Regan Bishop, Harrison Parkin, Cruz Lloyd, Liam Hedding, Zoe Haynes, Owen Andreasen, Leslie Vassmer, Chloe Knutter, Jax Helms, Kealan Bedford, Aaliyah Stewart, Landon Jackson, Ananya Kongying, Mariah Kimmi, Carter Clinton, Elizabeth McCoy, Brett Jones, Fate Klaben, and Lane Overholtzer.

This year Student Council has many ideas and plans for activities and fundraisers to help the people of Excelsior Springs as well as Uganda. Officer Jeremiah Renne has asked our student council members to help him, along with the other buildings in the district, fund a clean water source for a community in Uganda! Already this year, the student council members have collected over 290 pounds of canned goods that were donated to the Good Samaritan Center here in Excelsior Springs as well as helping pass out Backpack Snacks on Friday mornings to the students of Lewis.

Our ongoing project for this year is the collection of aluminum pop tabs that the students will be donating to the Ronald McDonald House in Kansas City. The students would like to encourage you to save those pop tabs and send them for such a good charity that helps families all over the Kansas City Metro area.

Please keep a lookout for upcoming events and projects that the student council is sponsoring this year as many more are to come!
