The Student Leadership Council (SLC) is a club under the Foundation of Walton High School. We plan and host events that create lifelong memories for Walton’s students while fundraising for our school and community charities. In a typical year, SLC hosts the Homecoming Dance, Powder Puff, Grill Days, WEB pizza, Swishes for Wishes and CHOA’s Just for Kids event. We try to keep the membership to 35 -40 students so that each student can have meaningful leadership experiences. We focus on leadership characteristics, as well marketing and fundraising skills. Our members are required to commit 15 hours per semester which includes our meetings. If you are interested in joining SLC, please submit an application for consideration at the link below by April 23, 2021.
Members of our Student Leadership Council (SLC) wrote over 220 notes to the residents of Manor Care Nursing Home and their staff. Three members of SLC delivered the notes before Thanksgiving in hopes of providing some cheer to the residents during the holiday season. They also wrote notes of appreciation to the staff during this difficult time as a healthcare professional.
The Foundation’s Student Leadership Council would like to thank all the students and families that purchased BOO Bags for our Walton staff. The teachers were excited to receive them!
We enjoyed seeing the halls and the teacher inboxes lined with these treats. Because of its success in its inaugural year, the Student Leadership Council hopes to make it an annual tradition at Walton.
SLC raised $860.00 for the Center for Children & Young Adults’ (CCYA). Below you will see a photo of our students with Dr. Mallanda presenting a check for $860.00 to CCYA, which will help buy pajamas for their residents this winter.
Let’s work together to make the holidays brighter for members of our community. The Walton Student Leadership Council (SLC) is organizing a MUST Ministries food drive. Drop your food in the bins at the front or back of the school. Donations will be accepted from November 11 – 20. Check the ad for the list of foods that are requested. SLC will be offering limited donation pick-up services on Sunday, November 15th and on Wednesday, November 18th. Click here to sign-up for donation pick-up service.
Our SLC students want to help you show some “love” to a teacher or staff person at Walton for Halloween. They are offering three (3) different packages that can be purchased as a surprise and an expression of thanks to your recipient. We would love to see every teacher/staff person receive one of these treats. You are welcome to purchase them for a specific person or spread the joy by donating the treat anonymously to anyone who hasn’t received one.
As an added bonus, the Student Leadership Council will donate all of the proceeds from this project to the Center for Children & Young Adults’ (CCYA) Pajama Challenge. CCYA raises funds each fall to purchase pajamas, robes and slippers for its residents. Cobb County School District has also chosen CCYA’s Pajama Challenge as one of its charities. So, your purchase will have two benefits: treating a teacher/staff member and helping raise funds for residents of CCYA!
