Student Leadership

 

At Sizer School we offer many opportunities for our scholors to expand themselves and develop as leaders.  These opportunities include:

Student Council

Student Council is a newly formed, student-led governing body that helps the school to make decisions based on community input. This group is composed of officers and representatives from each Advisory, and is a means for students to organize events or suggest school changes based on student input.

Student Ambassadors

Student Ambassadors are the school’s team of student leaders. This group fills a variety of positions that enable student voice, strengthens the community, and improve communication between students, teachers and administration. Student Ambassadors fill a variety of community roles and are an extensive resource for supporting other students, community and education at Sizer School. Student Ambassadors are visible leaders in the school, and our community relies on them to keep the Sizer Six and our mission of “Think, Care, Act” alive.

For information about becoming a Student Ambassadors, see the Student Ambassador Coordinator in room C103 or at info@sizerschool.org.

Nurses Station Leaders

Nurses Station Leaders are the student assistants in Sizer’s Nurses’ Office. The Health Care Co-Op is a unique learning opportunity offered each semester that gives students a chance to serve in a public role.  Students are responsible for answering the telephone, keeping a log of daily visits, and assisting the nurse with daily tasks such as filing, faxing, photo copying, etc.  This role is geared towards but is not limited to students seeking a job in the health profession.

For more information about becoming a Nurse Station Leader, please see Mrs. Zwicker in the Nurse’s Office or at zwickerm@sizerschool.org.

Peer Mediators

Peer Mediators are Sizer’s student-led conflict resolution volunteers. Sizer School and Mediation Services of North Central Massachusetts work together to implement the peer mediation program, which trains approximately thirty (30) students in grades 7-12. Teachers, administration, staff, and students may refer a conflict to mediation.
