     Student Council went to the Arizona Association of Junior High Student Councils annual student retreat on Feb. 2 in Phoenix.
     StuCo wanted to go to the Suns leadership conference at Talking Stick Resort Arena because they hoped to learn new skills about collaboration and teamwork.
     “They really get a chance to discuss plans and strategy with people they’ve never met before, which is a great real-world experience,” Jason Davis said.
     On this year’s trip there were many new activities to learn from. The conference has many educational leadership sessions where students learn to interact with one another and work together. This helps them become a better council member.
     “At the end of the day we all had an abundance of ideas on how to improve our leadership skills,” Kashmir Baillie said.
     In addition to learning new skills, the StuCo members said the day is a an excellent opportunity for bonding.
     “The most beneficial thing from that day was spending more time with my council and getting to interact with them in a leadership setting,” Baillie said.
