Rising fifth graders apply to become house leaders, and are carefully chosen based on character, house spirit, school spirit, and leadership qualities. House leaders are involved in every aspect of house days from planning to participating. They attend monthly meetings with the house sponsors and Mr. Sikes to share ideas for upcoming house days and competitions as well as share feedback from other students in their house. In November, they helped organize and lead the Can Food Drive which raised 1,700 cans! The most important role of a house leader is to keep all of the students in his or her house PUMPED up! They lead house cheers and activities at each house day. Our fifth grade house leaders were recognized at the February board meeting. The house leaders are Perseverance: Chase Johnson, Pride: Maddie Scoggins, Tradition: Whitney Blaylock, and Valor: Gabbi Cherry.
