Student Council


(Grades 6-8)

Student Council is an activity-based student organization for all three grade levels designed to enhance and encourage student involvement within their school and community. We meet Tuesdays after school until 3:30pm. Interested students should show a consistent demonstration of common courtesy, respect for others, and a positive attitude, and they meet all academic expectations satisfactorily. Student Council members will serve as a positive role model for all Lincoln students and as an ambassador in the school district and community. Activities we have been involved in include spirit week, Veteran’s Day program, “Deck the Door” contest, penny wars, cards to soldiers/neighbors, food drives for Cougar Cabinet, Masquerade Madness, Washburn Neighborhood rain barrel donation, and much, much more!

Officers are listed below.

The Lincoln/SOTA II/Coulee Montessori Student Council is sponsoring a Penny War to raise money for New Horizons, an organization that helps women who are in unsafe situations.  Each homeroom will have a bucket. Pennies will equal positive points. But, silver coins and dollar bills take away from your total.

Student Council would like to thank everyone for their effort and competitive spirit during the Penny Wars.  As three schools, we raised $283.37, which will all be donated to New Horizons, a shelter here in La Crosse for individuals and families who have experienced domestic violence.  The homeroom competitions were exciting. In the end, it was the positive points that won out. Congratulations to MONTESSORI for having the most positive points, 6045. Mrs. Paula Johnson will be in contact with you to plan your pizza party.


CONGRATULATIONS to the Student Council Deck the Door contest winners! In third place, we have Mrs. O’Mara’s class. In 2nd place, we have Montessori. And the grand champion door decorators of this school year is … drumroll please… Mrs. Duddeck’s class! Congratulations to those three classes for fabulous door decor and school spirit! Mrs. P. Johnson will deliver the traveling trophy and hook you up with prizes very soon!
