SBCS Student Council Leads Breast Cancer Research Fundraiser
The St. Benedict Catholic School Student Council spearheaded a Pink Out Day to raise awareness and money for Breast Cancer Research. All SBCS students and staff dressed in pink from head to toe to honor or remember those who have been impacted by breast cancer.
SBCS raised $250, which was sent in to breast cancer research! Way to go, Ravens!
SBCS StuCo Contributes to Hurricane Relief Efforts
In the aftermath of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma this Fall, St. Benedict Catholic School Student Council stepped up to raise money for those who were impacted in some of the hardest hit areas in both Texas and Florida. SBCS students contributed in a special way. All money raised at SBCS was sent to other Catholic school students in cities hit by the hurricanes. The fundraiser was a big success, as students brought in $386. The Raven StuCo generously added $114 to shoot the St. Benedict total support up to $500. Well done, Ravens! Way to share your light with other students in need. Our thoughts and prayers will continue to be with all those affected by hurricanes, fires, and other natural disasters in our country and our world.

The president also leads meetings, speaks at assemblies, and approves ideas.
