Here, girls are empowered and take on leadership roles in formal and informal ways.
Walker’s student government, known as “Senate,” is composed of these standing members: the Big 7, Fabulous 5, freshwoman, sophomore, and junior class presidents, vice presidents, and administrators. These Senate members are responsible for working with administrators, faculty, and other students to ensure the smooth running of the student community and its activities. The Senate meets once a week to be prepared to communicate with the community on significant issues and concerns.
The Big 7 works closely with the Assistant Head of School for Student Life and Director of Social Justice and Inclusion regarding any concerns of the residential and day communities or co-curricular programs. Their leadership extends beyond their specific duties to include working as liaisons between students and adults throughout the School community. The Big 7 is chosen in the spring of each year by vote of the student body, faculty, and staff.
The Ethel Walker Middle School is committed to developing leaders that will act with confidence, courage, conviction, and integrity. The Fabulous Five student government consists of the following. President, Vice President, Secretary, Head of Community Partnerships, and Sixth Grade Representative.
