Student Council is a honors club facilitated by Holley Matthews and Iris Escalante Garcia at Pelion Middle School. It seeks to provide a valuable leadership partnership between our students and our school by creating opportunities for students to become effective leaders, thus encouraging and influencing a positive school climate. Examples include field trips, attending conferences and coordinating visits with leaders.

In 2011, Student Council went to Washington D.C. with other honors groups and visited the Smithsonian, Capitol, White House, and several national monuments.
