We are thrilled to share that the Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center (IHMEC) selected our school to participate in our 2019 Student Leadership Day on Thursday, February 21. Eight middle school students who exemplify leadership and advocacy for change in our community and school were chosen to represent SBPS. This was the second year SBPS has been chosen to participate in Leadership Day. We were pleased to be invited back.
THE POWER OF ONE: Choosing to Make a Difference for 7th and 8th grade students. Student Leadership Day challenged participants to think about lessons that can be learned from the past, empowering them to stand against indifference and injustice today. FEATURED KEYNOTE SPEAKER: DAVID HOGG, March for Our Lives Founder, Activist, and Stoneman Douglas High School Alumnus.
