Heatherwood has a student governing board of 12 students, 5 elected officers and 7 executive board members. We meet once a week and plan events such as the dances, pride week, the food drive and toys for tots. We also help at school events such as orientation, curriculum night and 5th grade night, to name a few.
Each 7th period class, either teacher or class selected, sends a student once a month to our ASB representative meetings. With their notes and the provided agenda, they are to report to their 7th period class what happened at the meeting. Most importantly, this group votes on the way their ASB funds are spent. We have a large budget which funds items such as the activity bus, risers for choir, DJ for the dances, etc. This is a very good opportunity for students to support their school and learn about student government.
