CMS STUDENT COUNCIL - S.T.E.M.
“Life is for service.” – Fred Rogers
Student Council is made up of promising student school leaders. As a student-based civic organization, it is designed to help promote school spirit and leadership among students; to improve school morale and general welfare; to provide a forum for student expression; and to plan special events or projects such as the "Kindness Coins" school-wide fund raising event.
Project Based Learning (PBL) is a constructivist instructional approach where students are engaged in meaningful inquiry of personal interest to them and where collaboration and personalized learning are emphasized. Research confirms that PBL is an effective and enjoyable way to learn and develop deeper learning competencies required for success in college, career and civic life.
