Leadership – Moderator Mr. Nicholas Reynolds nreynolds@svhs-pet.org

The curriculum is divided into two areas: leadership principles/purpose and event planning. Leadership principles are relayed to students via in-class articles and round table discussion. Class time will work to support both of the above curriculum areas. These learned leadership skills will be demonstrated in the planning, promoting, and running of school events and community service activities. Students will also maintain a web-based calendar of school events, organize two Blood Drives and support the needs of our community.

Note: Leadership is a zero period (7:30-8:15 am) elective class.  Enrollment is based on faculty recommendation and advisor approval.
