The Council coordinates the publication of the district-wide calendar and the student directory App. It also supports a variety of programs, such as the Kenya Sister School, HOH Scholarships, the HOH 5K Run-Walk-Obstacle Course, and the Gift Card Plus Program.

- To promote an environment in which every student has the opportunity to grow intellectually, socially, and emotionally
- To raise funds for the benefit of the District 28 Schools and students.
The Council meets at 9 a.m. the first Tuesday of the month in the HOH Community Room at the district office, 1475 Maple Ave. The meetings are open to everyone.
