Student Council

Student Council
By Annie, 7th grade student

Student Council is an enrichment program for grades 4-8. These students are role models for the rest of the school, and help the staff run the school. The council officers are selected by the student body at the end of the previous school year. The representatives from each class from grades 4-8 are selected at the start of the new school year. The council sometimes goes on field trips, such as the annual trip to the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, where they help set up and host the Christmas party for patients. They also organize events such as the Halloween parade and trick-or-treating parade or the Jog-A-Thon. 


The officers, such as the president, secretary, treasurer, girls’ and boys’ sports, commissioner of awards, buildings and grounds, safety and ecology, religious affairs, and commissioner of spirit, coordinate most of the activities in the school. Their jobs range from putting up the flag every morning to helping with morning announcements. 


Student Council Visits a Hospital

CATCH Program

Every year the Holy Trinity Student Council visits The Children's Hospital of Los Angeles to donate socks to the patients. They give the socks to these kids because they are living in a hospital and because many of these conditions, they can't wear shoes. We give them socks so they can walk around comfortably. This is held in December because at this time the hospital holds their annual Christmas party and this is a great opportunity to give them the socks. I asked Anna, the president of the school’s Student Council about the annual drive. Anna says that the school donates socks to Children's Hospital of Los Angeles because we are called to give back to the less fortunate. She enjoys participating in this activity because it is a very humbling experience, and taking part in the drive makes her grateful for everything she has.
