Student Leadership & Activities

Government

The aim of CSPA High School Student Government is to increase the individual level of students’ commitment to their school. It assists the District’s community (parents, students, school staff and faculty, stakeholders) in crafting a school culture that compels office holder’s peers to want to come to school and learn.

CSPA high school Student Government consists of elected officers and class representatives. Leadership opportunities for students who serve as Student Government officials are many and the challenges are great. They provide those students with numerous opportunities to realize the objectives of the District’s Embedded Curriculum which is to know yourself and like yourself, get along with others and work together with others to solve problems. Student Government members model and are examples of the characteristics of an intentional and purposeful student.

The CSPA high school Student Government strives to serve its student body by planning activities that enhance school spirit and build a sense of community. They plan and co-sponsor the September Service Saturday and the annual Fall Picnic with the National Honor Society and implement Spirit Days throughout the year. Additionally, they assist in the planning of large events such as the Fall Ball, Spirit Week, the Winter Dance and the Junior Senior Prom. They also develop community service events that benefit the surrounding communities which includes an annual toiletry drive.

National Honor Society

The National Honor Society (NHS) is a leading organization that recognizes and involves outstanding middle and high school students across the nation. It is regarded as a concrete way to promote high academic standards, a means of ensuring the continuation of democracy, and an instrument for the betterment of the individual and the school. National Honor Society is for high school students, Junior National Honor Society is for middle school students.

CSPA High School hosts a chapter of the National Honor Society. High school students who are invited to join have met a number of requirements including the four pillars of honors society membership: character, service, leadership, and scholarship. Invitation to apply to join National Honor Society occurs in the spring. Induction occurs in the fall.

The annual activities of the CSPA high school chapter of NHS include co-sponsoring the fall service day in conjunction with student government. NHS is also involved in Pet Project through Meals on Wheels. They have a seat on the Livingston County Committee and sponsor pet food drives throughout the year. NHS also assists at Brighton Library’s Used Book drive twice a year. They are involved in the annual “Feed the Need to Read” Literacy campaign by performing a song about reading and literacy to the Navigator classrooms at CSA Elementary School.
