The following organizations are available for student sign up yearly.
Student Council is a group of Academy students that make up the student government of the school. Students are elected by their peers to be the voice of the student body to the faculty and administration of Guardian Angels. Council members must have a strong moral character, a good behavior record, and portray a positive role model to all students.
Student Council is responsible for planning Academy celebrations, creating events for Kindness Week, organizing the Pep Rally for the Michigan/Michigan State game, gathering gifts for the faculty, staff, and administration during teacher appreciation week, and selling a variety of snack and seasonal items during Academy lunch. Each year, Student Council selects a charity to receive all fundraiser profits. This year's charity is the Detroit Rescue Mission.
Service Squad is a group of Academy students dedicated to serving the teachers. Membership begins in early September when students have the opportunity to sign up to share their time and gifts. They are assigned to a teacher for the year and volunteer their time after school. In the past, our members have helped in the art room with organizing lessons and supplies, in the science lab helping prepare items for future labs, in the kindergarten or preschool room with organization and lesson preparation, and in the library with book collection and shelving. Service Squad is a great opportunity for students to contribute to our school community.
