Student Leaders

Student Leader Coordinator:  Carla MacDougall, School Counselor

DC LEADERS is a student group comprised of 4th and 5th graders who promote positivity, good character, and kindness around our school!

There are three DC Leadership Teams:

  • The Beautification Team is responsible for all things campus clean up. They collect recycling and help our custodial team ensure our school shines.
  • The Safety Team is responsible for keeping traffic moving during drop off and pick up times. Student safety is their #1 priority.
  • The Positivity Team helps with a variety of school wide projects that promote kindness, inclusion, and positivity. This includes morning gate greeting, a recess board game cart, and many other school wide initiatives that change year to year based on need! 

DC LEADERS are motivated, helpful, do-gooders who apply and are selected based on the quality of their application and their leadership qualities. Applications will be made available in early September each year.
