Be a Leader-Be a Hero: United Way wishes to congratulate the over 1,000 K-5 students who are participating in the Be a Leader-Be a Hero program at Cambridge Narrows School, Geary Elementary, Lower Lincoln Elementary, Royal Road Elementary and Connaught Street Elementary.
The goal of the program is to empower children to make a difference in the lives of others through good deeds; helping a classmate with a math problem, including others at recess and lunch, going out of there way to lend a helping hand. Teachers are given tracking boards and markers. Students get a marker when a fellow student or teacher recognizes the help they have given or the good deed they have done. The classroom sets an overall goal to work towards as a group. United Way makes special presentations to each student for playing a part in meeting that goal. The focus of this program is to create a school community that works together.
