We're a Lighthouse School

Congratulations Pickett's Mill students, staff and parents!

We are proud to be acknowledged as a Leader in Me Lighthouse School! Please see the personal message on the video player from Sean Covey.

There are 1,592 Leader in Me schools around the world. Only 64 of those schools have achieved Lighthouse Status.
