Thank you 8th grade student leaders for working hard to provide our entire school community with another exuberant Halloween celebration!

Led by student Molly Soladay, a well-organized and dedicated group of 8th graders planned and executed the entire event. They presented LEAP with a budget proposal for the event, and after receiving their event allowance, and with some adult support (thank you staff and parents!), were able to shop, set up, staff, and pull off a fun and festive event for all. And at the end of the day, the students not only stayed within their budget, but made a $327 donation to LEAP from their proceeds. Thank you 8th graders for your contributions of new ideas, fresh energy and hard work put into a beloved Lagunitas tradition and your generous spirit. The executive skills and leadership needed to pull off an event for 300 plus children and adults are significant and valuable life skills indeed. This was a tremendous service to our school community. We congratulate and thank the 8th grade leadership team and all middle school volunteers for a job well done!
