Serve Daily - - FOSTERING INNOVATION - By Lana Hiskey

At the Nebo School Dis­trict Of­fice, a firm hand­shake, eye con­tact and a sim­ple greet­ing such as, “Hello! Welcome to Board Meet­ing,” is what ev­ery visi­tor and dis­trict staff en­coun­tered from 13 Park Stu­dent Lead­ers at the Sept. 9 Board of Ed­u­ca­tion meet­ing.

Stu­dents and staff had the priv­i­lege to present the good things hap­pen­ing at Span­ish Fork’s Park Ele­men­tary School. Ev­ery­thing pre­sented was cen­tered on the Leader in Me pro­gram.

Lily Stutz, a sixth-grade stu­dent, started things off by shar­ing her ex­pe­ri­ences in Leader in Me and with the 7 Habits. These habits pro­vide a sound ed­u­ca­tion for set­ting goals in life. Lily also men­tioned how she loves read­ing.

Prin­ci­pal Ryan Kay pre­sented the Leader in Me pro­gram and the Three Wildly Im­por­tant Goals (WIGS) fo­cused on by Park Ele­men­tary:

1. 90 per­cent of stu­dents will read at grade level, and 100 per­cent of stu­dents will make one year’s aca­demic growth. 2. 93 per­cent on-time at­ten­dance. 3. 80 per­cent of all stu­dents will earn a Golden Pan­ther Paw.

Es­ther Wirfs ex­plained the new Lead­er­ship Academy class stu­dents will at­tend once a week. Stu­dents will con­tinue to ex­pand their knowl­edge of the 7 Habits and Leader in Me as well as learn about lead­ers in mu­sic, art, history and much, much more.

Heidi Cook rep­re­sented the School Com­mu­nity Coun­cil and ex­pressed her love for the Leader in Me pro­gram and how it has helped in the growth and suc­cess of her chil­dren and fam­ily. To cap the evening off, the third-grade stu­dents sang three habit songs that brought smiles and ap­plause from those that ex­pe­ri­enced the joy of our stu­dent lead­ers.

Third-grade stu­dents from Park Ele­men­tary School in Span­ish Fork sang songs as part of a pre­sen­ta­tion high­light­ing Park Ele­men­tary pro­grams dur­ing a meet­ing of the Nebo School Dis­trict Board of Ed­u­ca­tion.
