About the Team
Statement of Purpose
The Student Leader Team will communicate with and encourage the Riverdale Ridge community to create memories, inspire engagement, and promote student voice.
Welcome to the Student Leader Team, the heartbeat of leadership at Riverdale Ridge High School! As an innovative blend of course curriculum and after-school programming, we are dedicated to empowering students to take the reins of their own education and make a tangible impact on our school community.
At the Student Leader Team, we believe in the power of student-driven project planning. Our mission is simple yet profound: to cultivate the next generation of leaders through hands-on experience, collaboration, and a passion for positive change. Whether it's organizing school events, spearheading community service initiatives, or advocating for student concerns, our team is at the forefront of driving meaningful progress within our school and beyond.
What sets us apart is our commitment to leadership development. Through a combination of coursework and experiential learning opportunities, students hone essential skills such as communication, problem-solving, teamwork, and project management. Our curriculum is designed to empower students to discover their strengths, embrace their potential, and lead with confidence.
As members of the Student Leader Team, students have the unique opportunity to shape their own educational journey while making a real difference in the lives of their peers. Together, we are more than just a team – we are a community united by a shared vision of leadership, service, and excellence.
Join us as we embark on a journey of growth, discovery, and impact. Whether you're a seasoned leader or just beginning to explore your potential, there's a place for you on the Student Leader Team. Together, let's inspire change, ignite passion, and unleash the leader within each and every one of us. Welcome to the Student Leader Team – where leadership begins and possibilities are endless!
We are a proud member of NatStuCo!
About the Class
Student Council (SP265A/SP265B)
Grade level: 9-12
Semester Credit: 2
Course Length: 1 year
Course Fee: No
Student Council is a year long course. Elections, which are held during spring semester, determine who will serve their class for the upcoming year. Homecoming, graduation, parking lot, student planner, and prom are a few of the activities that are planned and carried out by Student Government. Often, Student Government members serve on building and district committees representing the student body on such issues as graduation requirements, grading system guidelines, and other issues that affect RRHS students on a daily basis. There is a substantial amount of time spent outside the classroom planning and carrying out activities. Students will also have the opportunity to improve their leadership skills through workshops and conferences.
