Park students were delighted to hear from Superintendent Rick Nielsen at their Victory Assembly for 61 leaders from Park Elementary. Superintendent Nielsen shared stories from his days as a “Park Panther.” He served on the student council and could be found racing cars down the ramp in the hallway. Superintendent Nielsen shared examples of leadership and his love for the 7 Habits and the Leader in Me program.

Victory Assemblies are a way to recognize students as leaders in the areas of math, reading, and leadership in the classroom. Students are selected by their teachers and recognized during a Victory Assembly on the first Friday of each month. Go to for a list of the student leaders for January.
