My Students

Finding the leader in us is a new journey our students are embarking on. Our students are eager to exhibit the seven habits of highly effective people and to display their hard work and growth for all to see.

We have artists, teachers, athletes, readers, singers, but most importantly we have leaders.

Incorporating Leader in Me in our school has helped us learn that everyone has genius. This program allows us to build on and celebrate the success and growth of our unique student/staff population.

My Project

Setting goals is a great way for students and teachers to "begin with the end in mind". Keeping track of these goals allows students to "be proactive" and "put first things first" in helping reach these goals.

The enclosed, outdoor bulletin boards will allow for our teachers to display student work and data that encourage student growth towards important goals.

Due to outdoor walls being exposed to weather and climate, our students have nowhere to display or keep track of their progress.

Help us create a school climate that promotes growth and positivity throughout our staff, students, and families.
