The Student Council of Paw Paw High School is made up of the Executive Board Officers, Representatives from each of the four grade levels, and the Class Officers for each grade level. The PPHS Student Council has also been a member of the Michigan Association of Student Councils (MASC). MASC provides leadership opportunities and education for advisors and students, including seminars and conferences offered locally, statewide, and also at the national level.

At PPHS, activities and events are designed by the student leaders with the intent that school spirit is enriched, and the bond between the school and community is strengthened. Some of these projects include:

  • Class competitions during Homecoming & Snowfest
  • Spirit Week Dress Up Days
  • Homecoming Parade
  • Holiday Candy Grams
  • Snowfest
  • Penny War
  • Adopt-a-Family

Student Council members are expected to model leadership and citizenship. Elected members are also expected to have exemplary attendance at all Student Council meetings and functions. Additional responsibilities of Student Council members are outlined in the PPHS Student Council Constitution.
