East River High School Student Government Association

The Student Government Association (SGA) is an organization run BY the students FOR the students. SGA serves as the liaison between the student body and the administration. Through the SGA, students may express their opinions and participate in the management of school enterprises.

The SGA representatives recognize this responsibility and work diligently to represent the student body. The SGA, which meets at least once a week, promotes leadership, initiative, and self-motivation among its members.

Each student class elects a president, vice president, secretary and a treasurer to lead activities pertaining to their class. The class officers coordinate activities with the administrators and sponsors working within their grade levels.

Elections for all offices, except Freshmen class office, are held in the spring of the year prior to serving in office. Freshmen elections are held at the beginning of the school year. If you are interested in running for office please contact Mr. Adkins.

If you are not running for office and you are just interested in joining SGA then you can fill out the application that is available below to be printed, or can be picked up from Mr. Adkins in room 528.

What’s it like in SGA? We organize activities to increase school spirit as well as volunteering in the surrounding community. There are lots of things we do throughout the year. Here are some of the things we do here at East River.

The beginning of each school year starts with Falcon Fly In for incoming Freshmen. Once school starts we get started with Club Rush and then shortly after move on to Spirit Week which ends with a bang at the pep rally. We keep momentum going as it  culminates at the big Homecoming Dance where students dress up and enjoy the music, decorations, and refreshments. 

We continue our year with a PINK OUT in October which is our way to bring awareness to breast cancer and donate our time and money to help find a cure.

November brings our annual Thanksgiving food drive for our local community. SGA hosts several blood drives from the beginning of the school year until December to end our year. In February the students all get together to compete for prizes in our annual Talent Show. There is more to come in the spring with spirit week and our last pep rally. Sounds good? SGA is always looking for more ways to help as well as more enthusiastic members. Go Falcons!
