The Lerner School offers a variety of student programs to support student leadership and community engagement.
Student Council is comprised of 4th and 5th Grade students elected by their classmates and peers. In the fall, students campaign with posters and campaign speeches to 3rd, 4th, and 5th Graders. Student Council leaders work together with a staff advisor to create activities for the Lerner student body. Past Student Council activities include:
- Talent Show
- Bake Sale, where proceeds go to a designated charity
- School Spirit Day during Purim
- Student Survey
Our talented Elementary students celebrate their unique abilities at the annual Lerner School Talent Show, sponsored by the Student Council. Children from Kindergarten through 5th Grade sing songs, perform magic tricks, play musical instruments, perform dances, recite poetry, jump rope, and more.
4th and 5th Graders pair with Preschool and Kindergarten students each week for our “Book Buddies” program, where the older students read to and mentor their younger friends.
The children develop strong connections with each other, and the older students develop their leadership skills to help nurture a strong, vibrant school community.
