The Lamar Academy/IB Student Council works year-round to promote a sense of community. Our recent projects include working with the Catholic Charities to help immigrants who need assistance, clean-ups with the City of McAllen’s Keep McAllen Beautiful and Texas Recycles Day, anti-bullying rallies, Say YES to Life-Suicide Awareness Event, Domestic Violence Awareness Event, and our Mental Health Fair. We also promote spirit at school activities, literacy at different school-sponsored events, and social consciousness about serious topics, such as suicide, depression, cancer, and bullying. Making all of this happen requires sizable funds. This year, we decided to host a fundraiser that makes money but also gives back to our community. Fall Festival at IB Festive was the answer.
We are also raising funds to send our students to the annual State Student Council Convention. The Texas Association of Student Councils hosts a convention where over 5,000 Texas students come together to learn new ideas for promoting a sense of community, not just in our schools but in our city. This is the second year our student council will compete with the other student councils in the state in the areas of “Top 10 Video” and “Top Ten Projects.” The funds raised will pay for registration, hotel, transportation, and meals.

In the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, “To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived – this is to have succeeded.” This is what we hope to instill in all Lamar Academy/IB Student Council members and in the people we serve.
The Fall Market at IB Festive is sold out indoors, but we still have spots available outside. For more information, please contact Erica De La Garza Lopez at 956-867-5065.
