Ambassadors In Training

My daughter's school has a 5th grade Ambassador Program that I've volunteered to chair with 
3 other moms.  It's a great program for young kids.  The goal of the group is to encourage 
leadership by helping out at the school on a daily basis, and at all events at the school and offsite.
 The students must exemplify the school values of safety, responsibility, and kindness.  

I have spent the last couple of weeks buried under red folders filled 
with training agendas and schedules.

My daughter has a large 5th grade class of about 130 students and 66 of them 
have applied to be ambassadors. They'll have to complete training in the 
month of September and re-apply for the fall term. 

It's up to the 5th grade teachers to determine who is eligible. 

School starts September 6th!

  2. Wow! It sounds like you have & will be really busy!!

  3. Good luck! I think it is an amazing program and I saw some kids in Ireland that were high school students in a program like that. They traveled all over. I think that is fantastic and hope you have a great first day of school!
