Rushmore’s Reps

A group of sixth-graders at Rushmore Avenue took pledges during their inductions into the 2016-2017 Student Council.
With their parents, advisers Julie DePace and Elizabeth Cottell, and Principal Catherine Silletti in attendance, students’ names were announced individually by Superintendent of Schools David Flatley, who also administered the pledge. The students raised their right hands during the pledges, and promised to represent their peers with dignity. Each student then received a customary student council pin, which parents had the honor of pinning onto the newly inducted members.
