Our First Annual Leadership Day was a huge success! Our guests were very impressed with our school, staff and our amazing student leaders. We are very proud of our students as they were able to show off their leadership skills. Our students helped decorate, greet adults, shared their academic and personal goals, and much more! We will hold a Leadership Day next school year and we would love to see even more guests attend.
Thank-you to our community for your support as this has been an amazing first year as a Leader in Me School!
