    Student Leadership Opportunities

    As part of our commitment to personal success and public stewardship, Montlake offers multiple opportunities for individuals to participate in leadership and assistance roles throughout the building.

    Green Team

    Students and staff meet weekly to lead efforts to integrate sustainability into all aspects of our school. As part of the Washington Green School movement we are certified as a Washington Green School in composting, recycling and energy. For more information about Washington Green Schools visit:

    Student Council

    Montlake Student Council began in 2009 with the goals of building community within our school and increasing school spirit. Student Council is a student run leadership group made up of 4th and 5th grade students.  Some of the roles of Student Council include planning spirit days and activities, promoting positive behaviors within our school community, and other activities decided upon by the members.  Working on service projects in the larger community is a long-term goal of the Council. Members of Student Council are expected to be role models and leaders in the school and will be responsible for communicating plans with the greater school community. Meetings are held every other Tuesday from 3:30-4:15 and are overseen by Mr. Schultz.

    Library Aides

    Students volunteer each year to work during recess in the library to assist our Librarian.


    Teams of students arrive early and/or stay late after school to patrol our crosswalks and assist walkers in safely crossing the neighboring streets. Patrol Students must be at least 10 years old, demonstrate responsibility and leadership, and be willing to follow directions. This important leadership opportunity is coordinated by Ms. Gingrich. Interested students are selected each year.
