This is the image for the news article titled District Student Councils Gather for Annual Convention at Thunderbird High School March 2020 – The GUHSD Student Council Convention took place on Friday, March 6 at Thunderbird High School. This annual event has taken place for more than 20 years and has provided students with the opportunity to become better student leaders. At the recent convention, over 900 students gathered to show their school spirit and share ideas on how to better their schools through student leadership. Each convention stars a new theme with this year’s being “Leadership is Magical”. 

GUHSD Superintendent Brian Capistran and Thunderbird High School Principal Jeannie Paparella opened the convention with warm welcomes. The morning also included performances by Thunderbird Dance, ROTC, Jazz Band and Cheer. A talent show and awards ceremony took place to honor students’ achievements as well.

The highlight of the convention was when students visited local elementary schools to give back through community service. This is a great example of how our students earned more than 97,000 volunteer hours during the 2018-2019 school year, and how they continue to support their communities and be excellent student leaders. 

Excellence: Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow #WeAreGUHSD
