Last week I met with several fifth grade girls who are serving on the Grade 5 Student Reception Committee. During our meeting I was so impressed with their confidence, their poise, their ideas, and their can-do attitude. This group of girls is charged with organizing the student events immediately following the Grade 5 Reception and they are giving it their best. They are collecting feedback from their peers and consulting with grade 5 classroom teachers regarding the day’s events. They scheduled a lunch meeting with me and presented their agenda and proposal for activities via google docs. We exchanged ideas, problem solved the logistics of the day and had great fun doing so! This is a talented group of students who will make a positive mark on the world. I would not hesitate to put these students in charge of anything, they are CEOs in the making!
