Merrimac Elementary School
Student Lighthouse Team Meeting Dates for 2017-18
The Leader in Me provides our school with the vision and language to lead the school in a way that addresses all areas of development. As each child discovers and develops his/her unique gifts and talents, they are given opportunities to lead. As leaders, they become active, engaged partners in their own education and their self-confidence, responsibility, and initiative grows. The children quickly understand the benefits of different gifts and talents; they learn to listen to new ideas, work together to achieve results, and motivate one another to be the best.
Merrimac has a Lighthouse Team comprised of students, staff and parents. We work collaboratively to begin with the end in mind by setting goals and formulating a plan action for the school year. We link our school-wide goals to our classroom and individual goals.
“Schools exist to promote learning in all their inhabitants. Whether we are teachers, principals, professors, or parents, our primary responsibility is to promote learning in others and in ourselves.”
~Roland Barth (former teacher & principal and founder of the Harvard Principal Center)
