Student Government

SPARK is the Lower School student leadership group. Students from the fourth and fifth grades are nominated and selected by their peers to serve as the student leaders of the Lower School and to represent the Lower School in all-school student leadership meetings and assemblies. They expand on the Quaker themes by developing child-friendly queries and convene Meeting for Worship in the Meetinghouse periodically. SPARK meets approximately twice a month with the Lower School Head and faculty sponsors. SPARK students listen to schoolmates and bring suggestions and concerns forward. As student leaders in Lower School, SPARK proposes ways to celebrate community and promote school spirit. They assist with Admissions’ Open Houses, Grandfriends Day and other special events. Students who are nominated to SPARK serve in the group for one academic year.
