Leadership Day celebration!

Thank you to everyone who made our Leadership Day 2018 such a huge success! Our Super Leaders were in action during the Synergy Assembly, school tour, and classroom visits. Then adult and student Lighthouse Team members answered questions for our guests. Thank you to those who attended and supported our little leaders. We hope to see you for our next Synergy Assembly on May 11. For more information, email suzanne.doucet@jdpsbk12.org . Call 824-1235 for details!
