Week of October 17th
You are invited to our Practice Leadership Day on 10/31!
We are looking for 150 parents or guardians to participate in a practice Leadership Day experience for our kids before we have a large event for the state on November 7th. Every Leader in Me school has a Leadership Day to highlight the school's student leadership. We invite teachers, administrators, and student leaders from across the state and the tri-state area to visit and see what our system is all about.
We need 150 volunteers to come in and help us with a dress rehearsal of our leadership day. We need our students to feel comfortable when they welcome guests for the official day.
Our practice day will be held on October 31st. Doors will open at 8:45am. Our students will be practicing greeting guests, holding doors, passing out nametags and folders, guiding people to opening ceremony, running through the opening ceremony, serving breakfast, cleaning up from breakfast, guiding groups of 10 to classrooms and panels, touring the building with our guests, and facilitating the closing ceremony.
If you can participate, please sign up here: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/409054caaae22a64-practice
