We are official and ready to be leader representatives for our school. Club members made their Leadership Lanyards so they will be easily identified as they are out and about in the hallways meeting and greeting our students and their parents as they arrive to school in the mornings. We decided as a club to provide a project, which we will make, to be auctioned off for our upcoming event “Breakfast with Santa.” Santa is already starting to make his appearance. If you look real close you will see him in our group picture!
