4-H meets with the fifth grade once a month at Leighton Elementary School. Mrs. Campbell leads the 4H program and our students participate in writing essays, designing posters, and competing in local competitions with area schools.



Student Council

Student council consists of students in grades 4-6 that write an essay describing why they would be a helpful member to the Leighton Elementary Student Council. These students help assist with Retired Teacher Lunches, help guide visitors around LES, help with fundraisers to benefit the school, and also help with the announcements each morning on the School News Live.



The Parent/Teacher Organization at LES has recently been renamed "TASOP". Each month teachers and students work together to come up with a service project to help the community or local organizations. Here are examples of what we do each month.

September- Back to school parent meeting where teachers showed powerpoint on the importance of homework and how important it is for children to be present at school daily. Parents were able to walk around the school and view student work samples as well as introduce themselves to teachers.

October/November- Teachers and the local fire department provided students with a pamplet on fire safety prevention. There was a fire truck the students could tour as well as a "Smoke House" which taught children how to correctly exit a burning building. This was all held on Fall Fun Day.

December/January- Students and teachers took up canned food for a local food bank. The students did this a ticket to watch the second grade Christmas play.

February/March- Students were able to purchase a lollipop for $1.00 that benefited Relay for Life. Students were also provided a handout on the different types of cancers and preventive measures.
