While Leader In Me is implemented school-wide to develop character and leadership in students, the Lighthouse Team provided additional leadership opportunities to a smaller group of students. The Lighthouse Team, composed of 30 students selected by their teachers, met biweekly to discuss prevalent issues, problem solve and plan events for the school year. They executed several projects, including the Souper Bowl of Caring, a canned food drive that benefited a local food bank.
