October at a Glance

Our October LEADS Learning Topic: Fostering Collaboration

Please add your October 20-30 minute session to the LEADS Google Calendar. You can access the editable calendar by going to Google Calendar and LEADS will be listed under "My Calendar". If possible, consider joining another conversation in a different building!

LEADS Badges

We would love to hear how badges are being used in your building! Check out what Lewis and Clark is doing... eLEADS have defined each badge and then during their monthly session together highlight the work teachers are doing in each area. What a great way to celebrate learning! Please share your plan on #lpsleads or our Google Community.
