The Newmarket Elementary School (NES) Student Council consists of fourth and fifth grade students who are elected by their classmates.  Two students from each classroom are chosen and meet weekly to discuss ways in which they can help NES promote the values of respect, responsibility, and teamwork.  Student Council members are responsible for leading the school in the pledge of allegiance, announcing lunch choices, raising/lowering the flag each day, delivering phone messages at the end of the day and various other activities.  Each member also helps to organize activities which both promote school spirit and give back to the community.  They represent their classmates and share ideas in an effort to make NES the best it can be.
