5th Grade Junior Leadership Academy Project

Congratulations to the fifth grade Junior Leadership Academy students who organized and raised $280.86 for Cancer Services.  In a Penny Wars, the fifth grade nudged out the fourth grade by raising just $12.58 more.  The Junior Leadership Academy is a group of fifth graders being trained by the Firelands High School Teen Leadership Corps to instill the qualities of leadership, service, and inspiration.  The elementary students have been learning the qualities of a leader, the power/influence leaders have over others, effective communication, team building, conflict management, other social skills training, and have conducted two community/school service projects, one of which is the Penny Wars.
