Student Council

Student Council offers AGS students the opportunity to actively participate in school wide initiatives and events, and lend their hands to community causes. While representing AGS, the student council members will carry on many responsibilities, they will gain increased pride in their school, and they will also gain an overall awareness and leadership in many events taking place at AGS. The student council will also provide a way of communication between students and the administration at AGS, and will share any student concerns that might arise throughout the year. They will be promoting school spirit through student involvement in school wide events.
