Learning to Lead
This is the second year that the JSHS has participated in Daneli Leadership training with Paul Muench and it is gaining ground. This program was open to tenth through twelfth graders that posed an interest. Students were able to find out more about this leadership opportunity during the Activities Fair in September or by speaking with one of the advisors. Twenty-one high school students then began training in November, learning Gallup research based leadership skills. Seniors are recurring members, juniors were chosen by leadership advisors, and sophomores are class representatives. The purpose of this training is for students to know their own strengths and how to use those strengths to be leaders among their peers. The hope is that the JSHS will have many students that take on leadership roles to facilitate a positive and engaging atmosphere throughout the school. The next training for these young leaders will be in February.
