Each grade also has a class representative. Representative elections are in the fall.

Blessed Sacrament Student Council members are not only leaders of the school, but of the community as well. These students are voted on by their peers and provide the students at Blessed Sacrament the finest representation in their student body.

Throughout the year, the student council members organize and participate in many community service projects such as a canned food drive and collecting Christmas presents for homeless families. They also work with the Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten students. Every morning, lunchtime, and afternoon, the student council members assist these students in and out of their cars to ensure their safety.
