III. What is CMS Student Council?
We are the primary student leadership group for Creekland Middle School. We are students
from a wide variety of socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. We are members of the
National Association of Student Councils, the Southern Association of Student Councils,
and the Georgia Association of Student Councils. We are a service organization focused on
helping others. We are representatives of the student body who promote positive change in
our school. We come together to form a world-class student council. We are nice. We do not
judge. We work for change. We are creators. We change lives. We SOAR.
IV. Requirements to be a Member
In order to be a member, you must be enrolled at Creekland Middle School in 6th, 7th, or 8th

You can also lose points that you have earned for not following through with your
responsibilities and commitments.

We use a website called Schoology for all Student Council business. This website is allows
us to communicate, plan, track points, RSVP for meetings and activities, sign up for
projects, etc. The information on Schoology is more updated than the information on the

you can install on your Iphone, IPad or Android devices.

All members of Student Council will have a picture ID made to use for school functions,
activities, and events.


Schoology is an online learning classroom and social networking site that allows the
members of student council to work, communicate, plan, and collaborate in order to
maximize our time and resources. By using Schoology, we are able to make our meetings
more productive and focused by making many decisions in a virtual classroom.
Each Student Council Member is required to register for Schoology and be an active
participant. All Student Council business and all messages relating to Student Council are
delivered through Schoology.
You must sign up for a Schoology Account and enter the Introduction to Schoology Course.
