Leaders Supporting Wanke's Leadership Initiative!

The Wanke ES PTA convened a panel of community leaders to discuss what leadership means at home and at the workplace.  Attending were, the Hon. Ron Nirenberg, District 8 City Councilman, the Hon. Marisa B. Perez, District 3 State Board of Education member, SAPD Police Chief William McManus, and NISD Superintendent Dr. Brian Woods.   PTA President Mr. Charles Hasberry asked questions regarding the leadership principles of the 7 Habits of Happy Kids.  Key points included: staying humble and being a listener, especially with our children, taking time to put first things first, and always focus on getting better every day, no matter what your role is.  The panel also stressed the importance of using these leadership skills at work and at home.  Wanke ES is currently implementing the Leader In Me initiative and working towards achieving the coveted Lighthouse Campus certification. Events like this help the whole Wanke Wolf family come together as a team to “sharpen their saws.”
