Leadership Day 2014
Our third annual Leadership Day held on Thursday, April 17 was a huge success! We had almost 90 guests comprised of educators, school board members, community members, business leaders, city council members, and the Livonia mayor in attendance! Our guests were greeted at the door, checked in and escorted to the library by students. Our emcee for the day, Gabby, welcomed our guests and invited them to learn about Cooper's journey as a Leader in Me school. They were introduced to each of the 7 Habits by different student leaders. Some of the students chose to write about what a selected habit means to them, while others sang, chanted or performed a habit. Student tour guides were on hand waiting to take small groups around the building to talk with students about how leadership and the 7 Habits are infused into what they do and learn each day. Our guests had an hour to tour the building, visit classrooms, talk with students, look at data walls and see various displays throughout the building where students were eager to share information. They then headed back to the library where students shared their Leadership Notebooks and held a student panel for questions to be asked of them. The day ended with lunch in the cafe and a musical performance by our talented vocal and instrumental groups. A great day was had by all as our student leaders really shined!
