Cracker Trail Elementary applied for, and received a grant from I Am A Leader, a private grant making foundation dedicated to providing programs and services that build students' character and leadership in elementary schools around the world. Other schools in our county have had great successes both academically and behaviorally with this school-wide program. We began this multi-year transformation in the fall of 2013. As part of the program each year, we conduct parent, student and staff surveys. These surveys provide valuable feedback on our successes and ways to improve in the years ahead. The parent survey takes approximately 5 minutes to complete. Please make your voice count and help us to continue our leadership journey with the Leader in Me program by completing the on-line parent survey. Thank you for supporting Student Leadership at Cracker Trail Elementary.
