Del Mar Heights Leadership Team helps others in a variety of ways

The Del Mar Heights Leadership Team (in photo above) consists of a group of 5th and 6th graders who want to do nice things to help others. Mrs. Moran helped to coordinate the many special and important events this year. This includes a Surfrider Beach Clean-Up at the Powerhouse Park, where they encouraged students and their families to participate.

The students helped coordinate the “Great Kindness Challenge” through Kids Korp, where students devoted performing as many acts of kindness for a week at school. Then the team had three students represent the school at an awards ceremony with the Mayor of San Diego. Some members of the leadership team even helped to produce a short commercial for an anti-bullying campaign at school. The commercial aired on the KHTS news program. Students also organized the Food Drive for the Holidays, where the school community contributed eight large barrels of food to the San Diego Food Bank. The Dolphin Leadership team made a difference in selling newspapers for Kids News Day at school to benefit Rady Children’s Hospital this year. One member led the effort by a team of students who wanted to help dogs and cats owned by people who are homeless. The school community collected boxes of collars, leashes and toys that were distributed through a local veterinarian who volunteers to care for these pets. Lastly, the team helped at a school cakewalk to raise $250 for the victims of the tornadoes in Oklahoma.

The Dolphin leaders also plan all of the school’s spirit days for the entire year. Their enthusiasm and high energy makes them positive leaders around the school as they inspire others to work together and make the world a better place.
