ZEPHYR COVE, Nev. — Zephyr Cove Elementary School students are learning to become responsible citizens while helping out the community on the student council.

Members of the council act as representatives of the student body, as well as participate in planning and running the school’s annual Red Ribbon Week event, decorating the school tree for Barton Festival of Trees and Lights, helping wrap gifts for the annual Giving Tree program and more.

This year, students in grades two through six elected Jude Stackpole as president, Jack White as vice president, Lilly Dingman as secretary, Troy Dingman as treasurer, Jake Stackpole as historian, Sarah Hurford as artist and Avi Rippet and Ella Moretti as representatives.

The school’s Giving Tree is decorated with paper ornaments that designate gift requests from children in need at the elementary school. Purchasing the gifts requested and bringing them to the school would help other children in the community, according to a school press release.

For additional information on how to support Zephyr Cove Elementary, call 775-588-4574, or stop by and grab an ornament off the Giving Tree.
