One of my favorite things about IES Länna is our students' engagement. I've never experienced anything like it. Each day, I observe examples of our students taking leadership roles in the school, usually from their own initiative. We've been back at school for less than a week, and here are just a few things I have seen and heard personally from our student body:
-"We think our schoolyard could be cleaner. Can we start a club to pick up trash?"
-"I know prom is a year and a half away, but we'd like to start planning. Here are some ideas I have."
-"I didn't make that mess, but I'll clean it up."
-"I saw you sitting by yourself, and you always tell us to notice others and make them feel welcome. Can I sit with you?"
-"I have some ideas about how we could find more seating for when we have breaks."
We work very hard on our academics during the lessons, but we work equally hard developing students who take initiative, find creative solutions to problems, and are constantly looking for ways to make our environment better.
IES Länna students, I am constantly in awe of your passon, your spirit and your tenacity. Together, we will do great things! Thanks for leading by example!
