Student Council is an organization of students who are committed to promoting positive student attitudes and effective representation of the International Academy of Macomb student body through leadership and student-led school activities.
The IAM holds two annual dances; Homecoming and the Winter Dance.
Admission per guest: $10* and 2 canned good items. Canned goods are collected at lunch Monday-Wednesday the week of the dance.The canned good items are donated to Hope Center Macomb or Gleaners Macomb. The purpose of the canned good collection is to take the opportunity to give to those in need in our community. Students who do not meet the deadline will have two options: 1- not attend the dance. 2- submit their items late with a one page essay (students must see Ms. Rojeski for the essay prompt.)
IAM students are allowed to bring one (1) non-IAM guest. IAM students are responsible for submitting a completed Dance Guest Form. The form must be turned in to Ms. Rojeski no later than the Friday before the week of the dance (8 days prior to the dance).
Dances are held in the IAM cafeteria from 7pm-10pm.Students should enter the doors near room 17 (Amthor) off of the Romeo Plank entrance. Doors close at 7:30pm. Students who arrive after 7:30pm will not be allowed to enter the dance. Once inside, students may not leave until 9:30pm.
The dances are semi-formal/formal. In the past, students attire at IAM Homecoming dances has primarily consisted of casual suits, button-down shirts and ties, and cocktail dresses. Students do not typically wear tuxedos or princess style ball gowns.
*Because student council purchases items for the dances based on ticket sales, there are no refunds.
Student council members in grades 10-12 are elected by their respective class in May/June for the following school year. Freshmen elections are held in September of the new school year.
