School launches Leadership Award

Jaden Allen takes first award in new program



HAPPY TO LEAD: Jaden Allen is GPS' first Outstanding Leader.

The Goldendale Primary School has begun a program called the Outstanding Leadership Award, to recognize students who have gone above and beyond in demonstrating outstanding leadership. The recipient will receive a Timber Wolf Leadership Lanyard from The Leader In Me, an organization focused on fostering the education principles of author Franklin Covey (The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People). The award winner also be recognized on an Outstanding leadership Board with a picture of them.

The school's first recipient is Jaden Allen who was nominated by Carren Tallman. Here is what Tallman had to say about Jaden: "Jaden Allen is constantly doing responsible things (picking up garbage near the bathrooms, picking up playground equipment, picking up trash around the classroom) and she never asks for a reward for doing so. I thought maybe you'd like to make a special trip and give her a T-paw for all of her good work."

Leaders can only be nominated at this time by staff and must have truly demonstrated outstanding leadership through living the seven habits that then enable them to live the truths of "We are Respectful, We are Responsible, We have Integrity and We will persevere."
