Leadership Day

March 23, 2018

*registration will begin at 8:00 a.m.


You may be asking yourself…What exactly is Leadership Day? It is a time to hear about our Leader in Me journey and to see our young leaders in action. During your visit, you will hear student presenters and be led on tours across the campus. **Note: This day is for seeing leadership across the campus. The tours are pre-set, so we cannot guarantee you will see your own child’s classroom. We will provide another time for you to observe leadership in your child’s classroom. Thank you! Please help us prepare by submitting your RSVP below by March 19th. Cypress Leadership Day
