On Thursday, May 5, students at South Newton Elementary shared their blossoming leadership abilities with district leaders and community guests. “Planting Seeds, Growing Leaders” highlighted how the small, but certainly not insignificant steps, that students are taking today will eventually pay off with some amazing leadership capacity for our youngest citizens and for our community as a whole in the future. Students gave tours of their classrooms and school, shared personal stories about their goals and progress, and showcased their courage and talents. Everyone in attendance was truly intrigued and amazed. South is currently in their second year of implementation of the Leader in Me, a program focused on Stephen Covey’s 7 habits of highly effective people.
