Middle School Leadership Team in Action!

Check out our Middle School Leadership Team in action! They visited second-grade students to teach the children all about what leadership means. The students practiced being leaders while playing “Follow the Leader”. What a fun day!

The Leadership Club is a program of Catholic Link’s Leadership Academy geared at growing leadership skills in our K-8 buildings.  The 7th and 8th Grade Leadership Club meets twice a month for 30 minutes each. One of the monthly meetings is devoted to the middle schoolers’ learning and strengthening their own leadership skills and virtues. Then, students plan and lead short lessons in the K-5 classrooms. The students are given a topic, like a leadership trait to teach the elementary students, and then they come up with a game or activity to help demonstrate the skill in age-appropriate ways. This is our second year participating in the program and it has been a success!  This program has resulted in students growing in their relationships, building bonds across grade levels, and strengthening in their confidence and communication skills.
