Leadership takes flight at Ocean Palms


The newly appointed fifth-grade ambassadors at Ocean Palms Elementary School kicked off the school year with their first meeting on Sept. 6, during which they received their assignments for the year and took part in a school cleanup project.

The ambassador program, a long tradition at Ocean Palms, engages fifth-grade students in leadership and community-based projects throughout the year. Students assist in classrooms, help with carline, lead the canned food drive, lend a hand for Treats for Troops, implement the Kindness Card Project, execute the First Responders Project and more each year.
