Home / Leader In Me

Dear Parents/Guardians,
Our school has a leadership program called the Leader in Me, which teaches 21st-century leadership and life skills to students and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader.
Our school will be conducting surveys to learn more about key areas of strength and areas of needed growth in our school. In order for us to have a holistic picture of what is going on in our school, we are asking all full-time staff members, parents/guardians, and students in Grade 4 and up to participate.

Parent Participation
We are asking just parents and guardians to complete a survey (without sharing your name or other identifying information) that will be available through the weblink below. The survey is completely voluntary, but we do hope to get feedback from one member of every household.

The parent/guardian survey takes about 12 minutes to complete and will ask questions about your child and about his or her experience in our school. If you have more than one child attending the school, you will be asked to think about the oldest child’s experiences as you answer questions related to his or her growth.

Please take this survey: https://www.leaderinme.com/s/william-penn-elem-pa/families

Please complete the survey by: June 1, 2023

Leader in Me logo

The Leader in Me is a whole-school transformation model that acts like the operating system of a computer – it improves performance of all other programs.  Based on The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, The Leader in Me produces transformational results such as higher academic achievement, fewer discipline problems, and increased engagement among teachers and parents.  Better yet, The Leader in Me equips students with the self-confidence and skills they need to thrive in the 21st century economy.
