Since the fall of 1996, Mission Avenue 6th graders have been in charge of publishing the school’s annual yearbook. The team was then opened to interested 5th graders, so there would always be someone on staff with experience.

  • The yearbook is a weekly, after-school, elective class.
  • With parent permission, interested students apply for the job and sign a contract of commitment.
  • They are supervised by at least one Mission teacher and one parent.
  • Students meet after school every Wednesday until 4:00 from October through March.
  • Responsibilities may include taking photos, writing captions and designing the pages.
  • Parent volunteers are always welcome!

Student Leadership Team

Mission’s Student Leadership Team is a student-government open to interested 3rd through 6th graders.

The board, consisting of President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Commissioner of Publicity, is elected after an October campaign, involving posters, speeches at an Election Convention, and a vote by 3rd-6th graders.

In addition to the Board of elected officers, each 3rd- 6th grade classroom sends one room representative to our weekly Thursday lunch meetings. The meetings are also open to 4th – 6th graders who didn’t get elected, but are interested in the student government process.

Typically, the Student Leadership Team helps with:

  • KCRA Kids Can! campaign to collect non-perishable food for local families in need
  • Monthly Spirit Days
  • February's Pennies for Patients campaign to raise money for childhood leukemia research
  • Discuss issues like campus profanity or bullying and offer solutions for a better school experience for all!
