F.E.T.C.H. Student Council The F.E.T.C.H. Student Council has provided students with a unique opportunity to grow in leadership skills for many years. Students who join the council will be expected to demonstrate a strong sense of commitment and respect for the Student Council, it's officers and representatives, F.E.T.C.H. families, and our community during the time they serve on the council. The Student Council will continue to provide a safe and practical place for students to fail forward and succeed beyond their expectations. Students will be expected to demonstrate a willingness to participate in a wide variety of experiences.Students who have previously served on the council, will be evaluated by the Advisor(s) in regards to past service, attitude and leadership growth while serving on the council. Previously holding an office or serving as a representative, does not mean that a student will presume to hold the same position on the council in the new fall term. Students are asked to participate in the events planned and hosted by the Student Council throughout the first and second terms. The Science Expo, Creative Writing and Arts Fair, Skating Events, F.E.T.C.H. Family Year End Trip, F.E.T.C.H. GOT TALENT SHOW, Thanksgiving Dinner are just some of the events!
