"We ended February on a very celebratory note! If you have not yet heard, Mirada was just named as a Leader in Me Lighthouse School by the Franklin Covey Foundation. This prestigious award was the result of our almost four-year journey in implementing the Leader in Me program at Mirada. In order to become a Lighthouse School, a school must meet specific requirements. In February, we submitted an electronic binder with pages and pages of leadership evidence and we went through an on-site review on February 12th. A rubric was used to score nine different areas. Based on our scores, Mirada was designated as a Leader in Me Lighthouse School."
