Leader In Me
At Hayes Elementary, our Leadership Program
provides students with tools to develop into leaders who will
impact community and global change! The Leader in Me is a
schoolwide process that develops staff and students as leaders
and thereby transforms the culture and performance of the
school. We seamlessly integrate leadership development into
daily curriculum, activities and systems to create a culture
where every student is encouraged to set and achieve meaningful
goals, be a positive influence on others, and use his or her
individual gifts to better the world. Be a part of the GREAT
that happens here at Hayes Elementary School!
