Teen Leadership Parent Night
Poplar Bluff Junior High School students in communication arts teacher Anita Frey’s teen leadership elective put on presentations for their families on Wednesday, May 13, in the gymnasium, demonstrating their individual growth by covering such topics as stereotypes, social media, self-esteem and forgiveness.
The new semester-long class as of this past school year is a product of Capturing Kids’ Hearts developed by The Flippen Group, a cultural initiative the R-I district subscribes to. Following the program, students delivered ‘thank you’ letters to their parents. An estimated 250 people were in attendance.
