Students get the red carpet treatment

Red Carpet

Red Carpet FirstMonfort Elementary students got the red carpet treatment when they returned today for the first day of classes - literally!

Monfort kicked off its "Leader in Me" initiative by welcoming students with applause, smiles and a red carpet that led into the school.

"We want to make sure our students get off to a positive start," principal Karen Zimmerman said. "We are excited to begin this journey."

Monfort staff received a grant to implement the leadership program, which develops essential skills and
characteristics in students.

The process provides a common language and set of tools for school-based leadership based on the research of Dr. Stephen R. Covey. MORE.
