The Leader In Me

Each new school year brings opportunities; opportunities for academic growth but also opportunities for growth in all areas of development.  Although children must be knowledgeable when they graduate, they must also be healthy, engaged, responsible, and caring people.

The Leader in Me provides our school with the vision and language to lead the school in a way that addresses all areas of development. As each child discovers and develops his/her unique gifts and talents, they are given opportunities to lead. As leaders, they become active, engaged partners in their own education and their self-confidence, responsibility, and initiative grows. The children quickly understand the benefits of different gifts and talents; they learn to listen to new ideas, work together to achieve results, and motivate one another to be the best.

I look forward to sharing these new opportunities with you. Together, we will watch each and every child grow throughout the year.


“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” —Margaret Mead
