 Words by Wildoner

Thank you to all the parents that came to our first Leader In Me Parent night. This was a wonderful evening with lots of great information. We hope that you now have more resources and tools to help encourage your child to be a leader at home as well as in school. Please be on the look out for more parent nights to come in the future.
