A Message from the Principal...

Ironwood has embraced the Leader In Me and the 7 Habits and we are focusing on The Leader In Me Core Paradigms.

Everyone can be a leader.

Everyone has genius.

Change starts with me.

Educators empower students to lead their own learning.

Develop the whole person.


By empowering our students to lead their own learning, we are finding that all students can be a leader within different aspects of our school day.  They set their own goals and track their progress towards meeting those goals.  Our students also share their Leadership Notebooks with staff members and families to show their growth and achievement.  Leadership roles and after school clubs also help staff see what our students are passionate about and we see their leadership skills shine through.


We’ve realized that change not only happens with staff input, we can obtain so many wonderful ideas from our students.  As we continue to focus on building student voice into our school decisions, our students have multiple opportunities to share their ideas.  Student Council and our Lighthouse Leaders make decisions on where within our community the funds they’ve raised will be donated.  Lighthouse Leaders have been set up during recess for students to share their school improvement ideas.   Today’s youth are tomorrow’s LEADERS!
