John P. Woods Elementary School (Fort Smith, AR). Woods Elementary holds yearly student council officer elections. Students prepare campaign materials and present speeches before the student body votes using computer kiosks. After officers are elected, students in each class run for representatives, creating marketing materials and giving speeches. Throughout the year, the student council participates in community civic activities, such as holding drives for the Wounded Warrior Project, Hamilton House, and the Humane Society.
In addition, during Constitution day students and community members share literature about how the country was founded. Fifth grade students participate in a Flag Etiquette program provided by the William O. Darby Chapter of Military Officers Association of America. Then students from this assembly are chosen to raise and lower the campus flag every day.
