Leader in Me Family Night

We hope you will join us this Thursday evening, February 8th from 6:00-7:00 p.m. at our very 1st Leader In Me Family Night! This will be a fun-filled event where student leaders from all grade levels teach our families about the 7 Habits and show off some of their leadership skills in some way. This is different from Leadership Day, which we hold annually, as Family Night is geared more toward educating our families to help increase involvement at home with the 7 Habits! We look forward to a fun and informative night of learning and leading with The 7 Habits put on by our students for their families!
