to our Student Council! They have been awarded the 2016 Gold Honor
Council for Missouri and the 2016 Gold Honor Council for the nation!
This makes the 23rd year in a row for Buerkle to win the Missouri Gold
Honor Council Award. It is also the 6th year in a row to win the
National Gold Honor Council. The national one has only been in
existence for a few years! WAY TO GO STUCO!
Student Council (STUCO) is a nationally recognized student council. They
are one of only 13 middle schools to be recognized as a gold level
honor council. They have also held gold honor council at the state level
for over 22 years. Student Council members are elected by their peers
and do various activities throughout the school year. Some of these
activities include hosting workshops for other schools, holding state
offices, holding Saint Louis area offices, mentoring other middle
schools, and sending a delegation to the local and state conferences.
Locally, our STUCO holds spirit days, has a staff breakfast, comes early
to help teachers get moved in to their classrooms, helps at night
events, holds a Senior Citizen Prom, host Buerkle's Big Blowout, sponsor
anti-bully activities, collects for charities, host mixers, and adds to
the overall school climate. Last year, one of Buerkle's advisors was
awarded Middle School Advisor of the year.
STUCO has received a $1000 award from the Missouri State Teacher's
Association to help with their anti-bully activities. They used this
money for guest speakers, to help purchase T-shirts, to purchase
supplies for activities, and to help spread acceptance of one another.
