Bosti Elementary School was recently chosen to host distinguished guests from Iceland as part of a cross-cultural learning experience that highlights the school’s successful Leader in Me program and the Icelandic culture.

Throughout the duration of their visit to the school, the foreign educators were able to engage in activities planned throughout the day that displayed how educational practices pertaining to the Leader in Me program are utilized. Students in Kim Patterson’s kindergarten class worked collaboratively on a synergize-themed project which asked them to fill up the empty space in a fish-shaped design while the Icelandic visitors observed and took notes on the lesson.

Additionally, Bosti Principal Dr. Gail Cholden sat down alongside staff members and the guests to discuss similarities and differences regarding culture and education.

To conclude the day’s events, the visitors were treated to special musical performances from Bosti student leaders, expressing their gratitude toward the Icelandic educators attending their school.

The Leader in Me program, developed by Franklin Covey, teaches 21st century leadership and life skills to students and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader. The program is now being implemented in more than 2,000 schools worldwide.
