The Lamar Academy/IB Student Council works year-round to promote a sense of community.Our recent projects include working with the Catholic Charities to help immigrants who need assistance, clean-ups with the City of McAllen’s Keep McAllen Beautiful and Texas Recycles Day, Anti-Bully Rallies, Say YES to Life-Suicide Awareness Event, Domestic Violence Awareness Event, and a Mental Health Fair. We also promote spirit at school activities, literacy at different school-sponsored events, and social consciousness for serious topics, such as suicide, depression, cancer, and bullying. Making all of this happen requires sizable funds. This year, we decided to host a fundraiser that makes money but also gives back to our community.Fall Festival at IB Festive was the answer. 


We are also raising funds to send our students to our annual State Student Council Convention.  The Texas Association of Student Councils hosts a convention where over 5,000 students in the state of Texas come together and learn new ideas to promote a sense of community not just in our schools but our city.  This is the second year our Council will be competing with the other Student Councils in the State in the areas of “Top 10 Video” and “Top Ten Project.” The funds raised will pay for registration, hotel, transportation, and meals.


In the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, “To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived---this is to have succeeded.”  This is what we hope to instill in all Lamar Academy/IB Student Council members and in the people we serve.


We are sold out indoors but still have spots available outside.For more information, please contact Erica De La Garza Lopez at 956.867.5065.
