  • Thanks and Giving--Leadeship class leads in many ways.  If you imagine that all they do is lead rallies and put up posters, you'd only be partway right.  The class has been especially busy this Fall, supporting efforts to help those impacted by hurricanes and other natural disasters.  They are going from room to room this week collecting canned foods and non-perishable items for Thanksgiving.  Sounds like it could be kind of a downer, but Ms. Marroquin and her team manage to find the fun in fundraising.  We have students who have crafted a giant cardboard turkey where they have affixed feathers to indicate things they are thankful for.  Our giant bird is on display throughout the holiday season to call attention to those people and things that make them grateful.  We see everything from, "my sixthy period teacher" to "fuzzy socks".  And every day, we notice new feathers that we missed before.  Students in leadership are there whenever we need them to be; serving as hosts for visitors, and providing assistance and entree to those who want to know more about the school.  The students host a monthly rep council meeting where they run the multipurpose room with over sixty students, one from each period 6 class, who sit and authorize major decisions.  All this is student run, all this is great practice for future endeavors.  Our Leadership students take part in the Youth Commission, have served as student reps on the School Board and do the non glamorous work of setting up and cleaning up after events.  Leadership lives up to its name, and takes on the burden every morning starting at 7:10 a.m.  For that and so much more--we give thanks.
