Each student interested in running for class president will complete the application form. Remember you are running for class president for YOUR grade level.

Teacher Recommendation

In addition to the application form, you will also need to have one teacher complete the recommendation. Due to the short amount of time in our elections this year, we are only requiring one teacher recommendation. This must be received before the deadline of THURSDAY, MAY 5 @ 2:30pm. It is not advised to wait until the last minute to ask a teacher to complete this. Any application that does not have the teacher recommendation, will not be considered complete, and will not be approved for running for class president. 

You will want to copy and paste this link, in order to share it with the teacher who is completing your evaluation

Campaigning Rules and Expectations:

  • No posters may be hung up prior to all candidates receiving the final approval to run for office. Tuesday, May 10, will be when students can begin hanging up posters.
  • Do NOT hang campaign materials over other signs or posters that are currently displayed in the hall and on walls.
  • Do NOT hang up posters in anyone's classroom or other area without permission.
  • NO GLITTER on your posters or flyers.
  • Only clear tape is to be used when hanging your posters and flyers. No colored duct tape is to be used.
  • It is your responsibility to provide the tape to hang your campaign materials.
  • Do not hang your campaign materials over other candidate’s materials…being respectful of other candidates is very important!
  • No poster/flyer can insult other students running for office. It should only be about YOU. 
  • EVERY poster /flyer should be SCHOOL APPROPRIATE (no drug references, curse words, etc).
  • To save time, it would be a good idea to have these ready when you turn in your application. You can start getting items ready, but nothing can be hung up until Tuesday, May 10. 
  • It is your responsibility to hang and take down your own posters.
  • All posters and flyers need to be taken down by end of day on Friday, May 20. 

 

Campaign Video--

  • Speeches will be no longer than 1-minute long.
  • Make your speech positive.
  • Do not criticize any other school, organization, or person.
  • It usually helps to have the speech written out to make sure you say exactly what you wish to say in as clear and concise manner as possible.
  • Practice your delivery and only use your notes as a back-up.
  • Humor is always a good attribute in any speech.
  • You will be responsible for recording your speeches to show to the student body. This video will need to be uploaded to a Google Shared Drive NO LATER THAN Wednesday 5/11/22 @ 2:30pm. The videos will be shown in WIN the following day. If you don't have your video uploaded, you are no longer running for office.
