Ridge Elementary School Hosts Annual Leadership DayOn Tuesday, March 27, Ridge Elementary School students showcased their leadership skills to members of the Longwood Board of Education and Central Administration, teachers, elected officials, civic leaders and community members at their Second Annual Leadership Day. The program is a school-wide initiative centered on The Seven Habits of Happy Kids which provides children with the tools necessary to develop their leadership skills in school, as well as in all aspects of their lives. 

Students in grades K-4 volunteered for positions including greeters, tour guides, panel participants, station leaders, and shared information about how The Seven Habits impacts their daily activities.  Others shared progress toward their learning goals, completed learning activities, and performed songs about leadership.

“Leadership Day provides our students with the opportunity to demonstrate their developing confidence through school tours, classroom visits, and musical performances,” said Ridge Elementary Principal Janine Rozycki.  “Our K-4 students actively contributed to the planning and development of this important event, and we are so proud of these young leaders.”
Funded through the District’s School Climate Transformation Grant, the Leader in Me program teaches students to lead their lives with confidence and independence while working well with others to make meaningful contributions at school, home and in the community. The initiative is in 2,000 elementary and middle schools across the United States, Canada and around the world.
