Student Council provides an opportunity for students to learn and practice leadership skills and create student led projects and programs. Officers and class representatives are role models for Wesley students, and inspire all grade levels to participate in school-wide events. Members of the Student council meet weekly to organize events for the student body; including new student orientations, special chapel celebrations, and community service efforts. Student council supports the mission of the School by emphasizing character development through organizing and participating in PRIDE events. Participation in Relay for life and collection of food for the North Hollywood Inter-faith food pantry teaches students the importance of service and personal responsibility in their wider community. Officers are elected from the middle school student body by all 3rd through 8th grade students. Each class chooses representatives for a one-year term.
