LEADERSHIP

CLUB LEADER MRS. REED

My club brainstormed today and decided they needed to get a message out to our school. They want our campus not to be just great, but awesome!

Over the next few club meetings we are working on painting a large banner that will hang in the front foyer.

The students decided to paint on their banner: “Make a Difference” It is their wish that this will help lead the pathway to awesomeness!!!

We can’t wait to get started next club meeting!
