3rd-5th Grade Student Leadership Opportunities

As we continue through the Leader In Me implementation, our next step is to begin some leadership roles for our 3rd -5th graders. This is just the first step in our journey, and there will be many more opportunities this year and for years to come.

If you have a 3rd -5th grader, the information regarding these opportunities was sent home with them, and can extra forms can also be picked up in the front office or the jobs board. All applications are due by January 26. Please take time to view these with your student, as many of the jobs start at 7:20, so if your student does not ride a bus, it will require them to be at school early one day a week. Also, please note that some jobs are for 5th graders only and afternoon jobs are only for students who ride Bus #2.

Linked below are the application and job descriptions.

We can't wait to see our students shine! We hope all 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders apply!
