Student Council (STUCO) is an active Middle School organization involved in programming and service for the school and the greater Pittsburgh community. The organization is run by parliamentary procedure and is used as a forum for discussion of issues relevant to the school. The organzation's goal is to foster a sense of ownership and investment in the school. Mutual respect for ideas exchanged among students and faculty is the hallmark of a successful Student Council experience. Being a Student Council representative is an honor and a responsibility at CDS.
Community Day School Student Council members take their participation in Student Council very seriously and attend the Pennsylvania Association of Student Councils (PASC) Middle Level Mini Conferences each year.
Also, CDS Intermediate School students in Grades 4-5 now have the wonderful opportunity to participate in Jr. Student Council (Jr. STUCO) to help build their leadership skills and to foster social growth.
Tefillah (prayer) Council affords students the opportunity to take a leadership role in leading and coordinating services at Community Day School and impacting the spiritual life of the school. The Tefillah Council members are in charge of our Torah services, leading special services for Grades 1-3, working on our Purim carnival, writing the Purim shpiel, and taking charge of any special service that may occur during the year.
