We are grateful to Tracey Hirner, Principal of Thomas Jefferson Elementary for speaking to our club last Thursday. Bethlehem Area School District elementary students participate in the "Leader in Me" program, based on Stephen Covey's "7 Habits of Highly Effective People."

Surprisingly, TJ experiences a 38% transient rate in most years, meaning 38% of the student population moves in or leaves sometime during the year. One more reason to show support for our community school!

Our Club has for several years collaborated with TJ Elementary School. Ms. Hirner, also spoke to us about this collaboration, as well as the joys and challenges of elementary school education leadership in the 21st century. Our future leaders/Rotarians are on the right track!
