Student Government

The fifth grade students of PS69Q play an important part of student government. They have discussions on real world problems and try to bring awareness to others.

Our students have a voice.


What is SoapBox?

I am going to tell you the importance of SoapBox. Soapbox represents the importance of our voices heard and changing the World. Without our voices, how would we share our opinions on things that need to change? Having our voices heard  is a very lucky thing to have, because in the past it wasn't as common. Did you know that even in today's world, some country's rulers control everything you do? I have experienced a Soapbox event where kids from all around the city gather to talk about issues that matter to them. It is amazing to see so many brave children using their voices for good. Just as the great William Faulkner has said, "Never be afraid to raise your voice for honesty and truth and compassion against injustice and lying and greed." And now I present to you PS69Q's first ever student Soapbox.
