Focus on Student Leadership

Several teachers are attending The Leader in Me conference in Manhattan on April 6 and several more are attending a Leadership Day at Maize Elementary on April 28. Next year, we plan to place an emphasis on soft skills and student leadership. We are hoping to get implementation ideas from these two events.

Parent Education Series

Sunflower Staff have created several parent education videos that are featured each month. Last month Accelerated Reader (AR) was featured. This month the focus is on McGraw Hill Connect.
