McClure Hosts Super Hero Leadership Academy

Twenty-six 3rd, 4th and 5th graders at McClure Elementary took part in the school's annual Super Heroes Training Camp. The camp serves as a youth leadership academy for students who want to become role models in their school. 

Superhero trainer Dr. Lloyd Hackley helped students choose a super hero name, design a costume and logo, and learn about real-life super heroes. The students also took part in fitness testing and learned ways they can continue to make McClure a fun and safe place to learn. 

Dr. Hackley was assisted by four soon-to-be TPS high school freshmen, who generously sacrificed their last day of summer break to mentor the kids. 

Working together as an education community is just one more reason Topeka Public Schools is a great place to be!
