Student-led Service Groups

Mountain Brook ESMountain Brook Elementary School (Mountain Brook, AL). As a Lighthouse School, Mountain Brook Elementary has developed a well-rounded leadership model. Every student and teacher employ a leadership role, self-selects and tracks goals, and maintains a leadership portfolio highlighting personal accomplishments and academic achievements.

Knights provide student voice to the Lighthouse Team and work with teacher sponsors to select monthly texts, related to the 7 Habits, for the entire school to read and discuss. The Legacy group designs and teaches Morning Meeting lessons that promote positive peer relationships. The Parchment group writes and publishes the student-centered school newspapers. The Scribes group designs and displays character-driven bulletin boards and assist with tracking school goals. The Squires provide tours to guests and recognize guest speakers at special events.
