In 2013 Stone Oak Elementary School became the 50th Franklin Covey Leader in Me Lighthouse School. Last month, January 2015, the Leader in Me Annual Symposium was held in San Antonio. Stone Oak Elementary was selected as a site visit for visitors from around the world attending the Symposium.
Stone Oak Elementary School’s Student Lighthouse Team spent time preparing for the visit throughout the month. For the first time this year parent volunteers from the PTA also attended the conference. On Thursday, January 29th, Stone Oak Elementary bobcat Andrew Bridges spoke as a Student MC at the Symposium. Additionally, Stone Oak Elementary was selected as a feature presentation. Principal Elisabeth Krimbill, selected teachers, the school counselor, a bobcat parent, and community members provided a presentation on community engagement.
On Friday, January 30th, Stone Oak Elementary had their first Leadership Night of the year. Teams of students hosted leadership events during the evening. As it was scheduled two days before the Super Bowl, students and parents were treated to a football themed event appropriately titled Stone Oak Elementary Super Bowl Leadership Night.
