   Introducing  Our  Newest  Student  Leaders   
   Student Leaders
 Fifth Grade Leaders: Sophia, Destinie, Anita, Asha, Kauther, Sean

Fourth Grade Leaders: Salma, Kadija, Nurdiin, Hrira, Khalid, Sumeya,


Student Leaders represent all the students of Presumpscot School, actively making our school and community a better place. You can see some of the big things they do, like running monthly Community Meetings and making a video for new staff and students. You will hear their voices on the intercom every morning reading morning announcements. However, there are so many small things they do that you might miss- things like collaborating with Unum to plan the reading volunteers program and acting as official greeters to guests of our school. It’s not easy becoming a Student Leader! All hopefuls had to write an application explaining why they want to lead the school. Each application was also signed by an adult in the school as a reference. Students who applied did a group interview with an audition. In the end, Ms. S.Nichols and Mrs. Dalphin had the tough job of picking only six from each grade to join. (Students who were not made leaders will participate in many ways over the year, including adding movement and skits to Community Meeting, making cards for veterans for local hospitals.) One thing is for sure, everything Student Leaders do shows the values and character of Presumpscot School to make the world a more positive place!
