Mr. Dantzler Student Council Leader
What is Student Council?
Student Council is an organization conducted by student leaders and supervised by adult sponsors. The purpose of Student Council is to provide leadership, and to serve the student body, the school, and the community. Student Council at Landrum is the students’ voice in our school. The LMS Student Council has served as an officer school for the Texas Association of Student Councils Districts 7 & 13 many times in the past. This is an honor, as Districts 7 & 13 includes all middle schools in Houston and surrounding counties.

What types of projects does Student Council do?
Most of the projects completed by Landrum’s Student Council are service-oriented. First, we provide information to the students, faculty and community about such topics as drug/alcohol abuse, safety and the environment. We also do many teacher/staff appreciation projects to create a positive relationship between students and teachers. Next, as members of the Texas Association of Student Councils, we participate in many activities at the district and state levels. These include two district meetings per year, the state convention in Austin and completion of the state project reports. The state reports are judged each year and the winners receive awards. Landrum has received outstanding recognition from the state each year since 1989. Finally, Student Council members participate in several fund raising activities to raise money for all of our projects.
