5th grade Leadership Academy In our Leadership Academy, 5th grade students volunteer to come early to school and help get things ready to begin our school day. Some students help in the cafeteria by cleaning and wiping down tables and chairs. Others help in the classrooms and take down chairs, pass out morning work, sharpen pencils, take out the recycling bags and water the flower garden. Another group helps in the gym by reading to Kindergarteners, passing out and taking up books. These students serve for three months and then another group of volunteers will replace them. These students work very hard and are dependable.
