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!

Special Olympics of Missouri's School of Character 2016 Gold Level School. Only seven schools in Missouri received this award! Buerkle was the only middle school and the only school in the Mehlville School District to receive this award.

Buerkle's 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.

Also, Buerkle's 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. Please visit this SIMS website to see what we did!
