Leadership Academy Parent Meeting for 2017-18 - Monday

What: Leadership Academy parent meeting

When: Monday, February 13

Time: 6:30 p.m.

Where: Martha Reid Elementary School cafeteria (500 Country Club Drive, Arlington, TX 76002)

This meeting is for all MISD parents of elementary students (not currently enrolled at Martha Reid Elementary) who are interested in the Leadership Academy next year.

Martha Reid Elementary School has been chosen to provide one of MISD’s first “school of choice” for the 2017-18 school year. The Martha Reid Leadership Academy will challenge students to take ownership of their own learning and become leaders of today and future leaders of tomorrow.

This school will develop students to lead locally, nationally and globally and to empower students to become productive citizens by preparing students for college and career, community leadership and purposeful living in the 21st century.

All students zoned for Martha Reid will automatically be enrolled in this program and no further action will need to be made by parents/guardians. There will be an opportunity for other MISD students to transfer into the program.

We are very excited about this program, and cannot wait to start teaching the next generation of leaders!
