Leader of the Month

Leader of the Month

The Leader of the Month program at Melridge emphasizes kindness and respect within all aspects of the student's lives.  We work to develop independence and leadership skills within our students throughout their day.  Using children's literature, students participate in classroom activities and discussions that build knowledge and understanding of those leadership traits as we work to develop a common language from kindergarten to fifth grade.
