    Leader in Me Parent Survey

    posted Sep 28, 2017, 1:22 PM by John Hull   [ updated Sep 28, 2017, 2:02 PM by Jennifer Hertneky ]

    Hello Leaders of Leaders,

    Just in case you didn't know, Sunset Park is a grant funded Leader in Me School. We are also the only Leader in Me School in Pueblo. In order for us to gain compliance for our grant requirements we must complete a student, parent and staff survey every year. I am asking that we get as many of our parents as possible to complete this survey. Not only for compliance, but so we can gain insight from your input. Thanks in advance for your support and thanks to Panda Express for their support of the Leader in Me grant.
