“Our students loved to be able to spend a day focused on healthy habits and leadership. I loved being able to take a small group of students to Detroit and the opportunity it gave me to get to know the students even better and really focus on their growth as a leader in our building. It was a once in a lifetime experience for my students that they will never forget.”
