On Tuesday, September 23rd, The Hope Charter Student Leaders hosted a Leadership Assembly at 1:30pm in honor of a longtime community supporter of Hope Elementary Charter School. Leadership awards were given to students who were recognized for exemplifying excellent leadership skills and above average behavior during the past quarter.
The assembly was also held to recognize the North Carolina Bar Association’s Citizen Lawyer 2014 Award given to one of the members of the group, Kate Deiter-Maradei. The Citizen Lawyer Award recognizes lawyers who exemplify the ideals of a citizen lawyer: those with sustained and exceptional civic, community and volunteer service in communities across the state. Ms. Deiter-Maradei was one of nineteen attorneys across the state given the Citizen Lawyer Award in 2014.
Hope Elementary students were ecstatic to welcome many members from the North Carolina Bar Association and community to share in their leadership celebrations!
The Student Lighthouse Team encourages student leadership to enhance our Leader In Me Program being implemented at Hope Charter Leadership Academy. We are looking for students with exceptional leadership skills to implement our first ever student lighthouse team, which emphasizes the Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. In order to be considered for the team, students should submit applications that include statements as to why they would be the best candidates for the leadership roles. These selected student leaders will help organize school functions and have input on important school-related issues.
The Hope Charter Leadership Academy Student Lighthouse Team members must consistently demonstrate the following leadership characteristics and requirements:
Dependability, reliability, and respect
Completes classwork and homework assignments
Above average conduct and citizenship in and outside of school
Good judgment and decision making skills
Knowledge of the 7 Habits and able to share with other students and community members.
Applications are du by Friday, September 12th. Applications were sent home in your daily folders. If you are in need of another copy please see Ms. Johnson, or Ms. Fleming for a copy!
