Leaders Go Places 2021-2022leaders go places

Leaders Go Places (LGP) is a rigorous middle grades leadership program that motivates students to achieve excellence in scholarship, leadership, and citizenship.
HHA is a tremendously diverse school, serving students from a variety of socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. The LGP program enhances the experience of all students by providing team building activities, incentives for behavior and academic achievement, and community service experiences.

LGP is based on these four promises:

  • I will contribute to the common good.
  • I will persevere.
  • I will conduct myself with honor and integrity.
  • I will produce quality work.

Students earn merits each day by exhibiting these qualities. We believe these promises are lifelong developmental traits that students should continuously strive to enact.

To earn LGP rewards each quarter, students must keep a required positive behavior percentage (earned daily for attendance, work habits, and behavior), meet a minimum GPA, and complete at least two hours of community service. Students are rewarded for their achievement with field trips, dances, and out of uniform days. At Recognition Ceremonies at the end of each quarter, students can earn t-shirts, pins, certificates, and other awards.

Every Friday morning the entire middle school participates in a Community Circle. Nearly 300 people come together to share updates and announcements. Students and staff stand to individually acknowledge others who have helped them during the week. Students and staff also have the opportunity to publicly apologize for any mistakes that were made. It is a powerful moment each week.
