Harriet Thompson Elementary School staff and teachers recently announced the school's November Students of the Month.
When Ava Medina was in kindergarten she remembers looking up to the fifth graders at Harriet Thompson Elementary School. She always knew when she made it to fifth grade, she too would be a leader of the school. “They teach us that we’re leaders and that we can do these things,” said Medina, who is a fifth grader this year. It’s a message ingrained in the culture of the school - Harriet Thompson is growing student leaders.
