- Student leaders are identified through the use of Mustang Tickets. Teachers will award students with a ticket that gets placed on bulletin board in the cafeteria. At the end of the month, the tickets are taken down and admin draws several from each grade level. A celebration event is held by the admin at the end of the day.
- Lighthouse team is planning for the March 1st “Readers are Leaders” day which includes a pep-rally and parade.
