Padan Elementary School is working on a new type of school culture and the children were excited to share the new way of thinking with the community at a demonstration Wednesday.
Children from various grades gave tours to the mayor and other visitors to show how the school integrated this new culture system into its everyday programs.
“The students lead events, they give the awards and basically run the school,” said Sissy Keck, facilitator for the Leader in Me program.
The Leader in Me program is based on the book “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Stephen Covey. The Vacaville kindergarten through sixth-grade school is the only one in the area trying this program.
