UPDATE:

Today's Class Council Interest Meeting will be held in Tesla Commons* (Geosystems). We apologize for the delayed update.

*Location is subject to change to Room 253 (Mr. Anderson).

04/28/2023

Are you interested in running for your Class Council?

With a blend of student policy, community service, and event planning, class government is a wonderful opportunity to serve your fellow classmates and share your school spirit. As a class officer, students will look to you to voice their concerns and implement their ideas. Before running for office, please keep in mind that you are making a public declaration that you are committed to working for your fellow students. You should run only if you are willing and able to make this very serious and time-consuming commitment.

All information regarding elections can be found on the information packet at tinyurl.com/tjcc2023. Make sure to complete all the items on the checklist!

If you have any questions, contact your SGA Officers, Mrs. Connelly-Kosek, or Mr. Anderson.

04/25/2023

We apologize for the delay in releasing the official CC election information packet. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we are running behind schedule. Class Council Speeches will occur on May 10th and May 12th this year, and materials will, unfortunately, be due towards the end of next week.

So, if you intend to run for CC, please note that the platform will be identical to the SGA election platform, except for question 11. The rules for both speeches and campaign materials will also be the same, so you may begin working on all three independently.

However, we kindly request that you refrain from asking your parents or teachers to sign any forms at this time, as they are still undergoing modifications.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

On behalf of SGA - happy election season!

With no further ado, we are happy to announce that we are finally rolling out the SGA Election Packet! By running for Student Government, you will be taking on a huge responsibility - such as organizing school-wide events (Homecoming, J-Day, etc.), working with school faculty and administrators to tackle school policy, and representing the entire student body. To put it simply, you will be committing to being a role model for the TJ community. Being an officer is a large time commitment and is not meant to be taken lightly.

For those who plan on running, you must attend a mandatory interest meeting.
One will be held on Wednesday, March 22nd, during lunch in Mr. Anderson’s room (Room 253)
The other will take place on Friday, March 24th, during eighth period in the library. Please sign up for SGA during 8A to participate in that meeting.

Your forms, speech, and platform will be due at 11:59 PM on March 27th, and campaign materials will be due 11:59 PM on March 31st. Requirements to run and other important information is listed with the SGA Elections Packet, which is linked below. Please read through it carefully.

If you have any inquiries, please email us at [email protected]. Best of luck, and may the odds be ever in your favor.
