Student council also takes an active role in philanthropic endeavors such as the community food drives, coat drives and diseaster relief.  

Human Relations
Boris Human Relations Council is made up of 4th, 5th and 6th graders who are interested in positively influencing peer relations on the Boris Campus and in our community. These students have been involved in National Mix It Up day, Pennies For Patients, Hurricane Relief and various other Pay It Forward community activities.

Boris Elementary strives to increase positive playground interactions during recess time, where students learn about teamwork, collaboration and communication to reach a common goal. This is one way our students can develp the mantra "win with class, lose with dignitiy" and establish a growth mindset in all they do. It is our hope that students will gain condidence and the skill base to help them continue to pursue future athletic involvement.

Digital Citizenship

Digital citizenship is a concept which helps teachers, technology leaders, and parents to understand what students and technology users should know to use technology appropriately and safely. Digital citizenship is more than just a teaching tool. It helps all students to develop digital citizenship skills to participate fully in their communities and make smart choices online and in life.
