Student Council’s main goal is to serve both the school and community, while promoting student leadership skills and setting good examples for younger students. In the past, OLP has been able to donate to causes such as Haiti Earthquake relief, the Red Cross, Hurricane Katrina victims, shoes to Guatemala and the parish food pantry. Student Council also heads the Giving Tree program at Christmas. Each year, OLP sends at least five council members to the IAJHSC (Illinois Association of Junior High Student Councils) Leadership Camp.
