McCoy Avenue Elementary school has instituted a Student Ambassador Program. This program has representatives from each classroom that actively support and work for ways to better our school and the community. The program allows for students to learn about leadership as well as opportunities to lead. The program allows students to have a real purpose and specific tasks. It also allows for students to start having a voice and choice.

One great example of community service that recently occurred was a program called Pops for Paws. Vice-Principal Mr. Harrison oversaw the ambassadors as they sent the word out to their classes that the school would be collecting old towels, blankets, and food for the animals at the Aztec Animal Shelter. Students received a Tootsie Pop for items brought in. Third grade ambassador Peyton Johnston wrote an article that was posted on her class school DOJO to promote this event. Mr. Harrison was amazed at the amount of items the school brought in. On Thursday, Nov. 16, the ambassadors as well as Mr. Harrison took the items to the shelter. Thanks to this program many animals will benefit from the generosity of students and parents as the colder weather approaches.

The Student Ambassador Program while in its early stages is already allowing the leadership qualities in students to shine. Starting at an early age the program helps to develop leaders for the future. Our students are showing their tiger pride and setting a fine example.
