Calling all 4th and 5th grade Comet leaders!

Duties of the Student Leadership
The president is responsible for representing the student body at all meetings. They will help develop the agenda for meetings and manage the meetings. They vote in case of a tie and must present a fine example for the council. 

The vice president follows the duties of the president when the president is unable to fulfill their duties. They are more hands-on with planning and directing than the president. 

The secretary keeps track of the minutes and handles all communication between the council members. 

The treasurer handles the funds and keeps financial records.
