Nebo Foundation Awards Grant For The Leader In Me

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on

You've heard the saying around this time of year "It is better to give than to receive."   In this case, Park Elementary was happy to receive.  Laura Taylor, Dale Phelps, and Earl Davis from the Nebo Foundation along with Lana Hiskey from Nebo School District, awarded Park Elementary with a $1,000 grant for The Leader in Me program.  In return, Park Elementary is building leaders for the future that will make a difference in our community.

The Leader in Me process helps children find their inner leader and gives them a skill set to flourish in whatever area they choose.  Students engage in creating personal goals, helping to create classroom goals and be a part of school wide goals.  Students and faculty refer to these goals as WIGS or Wildly Important Goals.  

Students are also learning the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and incorporating them into their daily lives.

Park Elementary would like to thank the Nebo Foundation for believing in the leaders developing at Park Elementary.
