Leader in Me Survey

Our school is implementing a whole-school transformational process called The Leader in Me, which teaches leadership and life skills and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader. Starting May 14 our school will be conducting surveys to learn more about key areas of strength and areas of needed growth in our school. The data from these surveys will also help us track the impacts of The Leader in Me process and implement key practices more fully. In order for us to have a holistic picture of what is going on in our school we are asking all full-time staff members, parents/guardians, and students in grades 4 and up to participate. More information will be coming home with your student.
