White Plains Elementary School implemented the Leaders for Life monthly club days last school year. This year, students continue to participate in these club activities. Students are learning to lead self, helping to lead others.

”Our leaders for life clubs provide students a variety of choices and a chance to find new interests,” the school said in a release about the program. “Once a month classes vote on which club they would like to participate in. Clubs include cooking club, STEM club, sports club, gaming club, art club, gardening club, dance club, writing club and brain teaser club.”
