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, Lower Lincoln Elementary (split between Summerhill & Gesner schools in Oromocto), Royal Road Elementary(Fredericton) and Connaught Street Elementary(Fredericton).
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 their 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.
For all media contacts or to find out more on how your local school can get involved in the Be a Leader Be a Hero program, please contact Jeff Richardson, Executive Director at 459-7773 Ext 202 or firstname.lastname@example.org
