Fifth Grade Leadership Program SEAL (Student engagement and applied leadership)

The North Hillsborough School Fifth Grade Leadership Program provides opportunities for fifth grade students to assume leadership positions at our school.By accepting leadership roles, participants will act as role models to younger students, learn to accept responsibility, and provide service to North School and the student body.

Leadership students will perform small, but critical, roles on our campus.Their participation in the program will make our school and campus a safer place, a more beautiful place, a more compassionate and understanding place, and a place in which we all can take pride.

The Leadership Program provides opportunities for the participants to:

  • Help supervise younger students at lunch periods and at recess,
  • Become involved in a “Bridge School Buddy” program,
  • Assist teachers, librarians, and office staff with special and ongoing projects,
  • Help maintain and beautify our school, and
  • Become a part of the daily responsibilities of running North School.

Although participation in the Fifth Grade Leadership Program is voluntary, we hope that many of our students will recognize this program as a way to make a positive impact on our school community, and along the way learn the value of “giving back” to the community of teachers, staff, parents, and fellow students who work so diligently on their behalf.

More than two decades of research findings are unequivocal: the most important aspect of a school in terms of student learning is teacher quality, and our teachers are among the best!

Students in K-2 have access to a reading specialist. 3rd-5th grade students participate in our Innovation Labs where they create and explore. K-5 students participate in music classes, and 4th-8th grade students have access to instrument instruction. Spanish instruction begins in 4th grade, and Mandarin is offered in our middle school. All of our schools have a dedicated counselor, teacher librarian, physical educator, and more!

Through the generosity of donors, the Hillsborough Schools Foundation pledged $3.5 million to our schools for this school year. Last year's Fund-A-Need raised funds for traffic and safety. Thank you!
