Dear Parents, Guardians and Community Members,

Leadership Conference

Student Council officers from the 5th and 6th grade, attended the Elementary Student Leadership Conference on Tuesday, January 12th at Naugatuck Community College in Waterbury, CT. The conference provided these students, the opportunity to develop skills needed to be effective leaders. They participated in hands-on activities designed to foster leadership skills in productive thinking, decision-making, communication and creative problem solving.

Our student council treasurer stated,"I learned that leaders are creative."

Our student council president added, "I learned a lot from the leadership conference. The biggest idea I took away was that to be a good leader, you have to share the power."

The student council vice-president said: "At the leadership conference, my favorite part was the no bullying class because they did skits to represent what they were talking about."

And finally, the student council secretary added, "My experience going to the Leadership Conference was amazing! We learned about bullying and other interesting topics. It was also really fun because I wrote down some cool ideas we could do for our school."

Collaboration at work!

Our morning preschoolers and third graders collaborated by playing the game, Obstacles. The game allowed students to go on adventures through paths of hazards and barriers. They worked to overcome obstacles by using unlikely tools in silly and imaginative ways. The students worked together towards solutions to get them "home". The experience promoted cooperation and imagination! I was lucky enough to take part in the fun.
