Fifth-Graders Gain Leadership Skills at CLAYMO Retreat

Glenridge Elementary fifth-graders took part in a special school tradition on Thursday, Aug. 22, when they participated in the CLAYMO leadership retreat. At the retreat, the fifth-graders worked in small groups to gain leadership skills that will help them this school year when they lead lessons in their respective CLAYMO groups, which are comprised of students in kindergarten through fourth grade. These lessons are designed to connect all Glenridge students with the CLAYMO Promise:


I promise to take good care of myself, all the people around me, and all the things around me.


After taking part in a variety of group and individual activities, the leadership retreat ended with a ceremony where students received their official CLAYMO leader lanyards and a special surprise – a letter of encouragement from their families.
