Leadership, Engagement, Action, and Development

New Year? Try a new club! On January 18th all 6th, 7th and 8th grade students are invited to participate in a student led organization new to Grisham this year: L.E.A.D. (Leadership, Engagement, Action, and Development). Students discuss and develop their leadership skills using materials from the organization Leadership Austin. Students view videos regarding Austin community issues and discuss ways they can make an impact in our local community. A new topic is introduced at each meeting. During 2nd semester, students will develop and lead a service project based on one of the issues. Interested students should come to room 104 (Mrs. Rank’s room) on January 18th at 7:30 am. For more information contact Mrs. Rank at
