Chesterfield Elementary School (Chesterfield, MO). Chesterfield Elementary School uses the Leader in Me process to develop each student into a leader of his/her own learning. They encourage each student to identify their strengths and interests and become a leader. Students develop academic and behavior goals and then monitor their progress using a goal binder. Chesterfield’s Leader in Me program focuses on nine-character traits of responsibility, respect, perseverance/effort, caring, cooperation, honesty, courage, patience, and self-control. The school encourages students to take an active leadership role in the school and spearhead community service projects. The Student Leadership Team includes representatives from grades 3-5. The team brainstorms ideas on how to improve the school as well as lead community outreach projects. Some of their ideas have addressed School Spirit Day, indoor recess cart, and helping the Humane Society. For the last four years, students have hosted a Leadership Day where every student is highlighted as a leader in some capacity.
