What is True Leadership?
Leadership involves vision, revision, and supervision; but the greatest of these is vision. Leaders must see what others don’t see and then challenge others to follow until they do see.

High School Leadership
Leoni Meadows was the location for the Pacific Union Conference Leadership Conference. Student leaders from the conference academies shared ideas and learned leadership skills to take back to their campuses to create a positive and dynamic environment for the new school year.

Leadership on the High School level also takes place in the Faculty Family Groups. All HS students are assigned to a "Family" under the supervision of a specific Faculty member and there are student leaders within each Family. Faculty Families meet together once a month to worship and fellowship. The student leaders receive special training in how to be effective leaders with their groups.

6-8 Winners
What comes to your mind when you hear "Gotcha" ? For EAA TK-8 students it means "You were noticed showing kindness, good sportsmanship and being helpful...when you thought no one was watching." When a teacher spots this sort of positive behavior, they fill out the Gotcha Form and places them in the Gotcha Pail Mr. Davis shares the contents of the forms at Friday Chapel, and draws winners from TK-5 and 6-8. It is so exciting to see the pail full of Gotchas! Good work EAA students!

Thanks for the Krispy Kreme, Principal Davis!

O, Say Can You Hear?
EAA 10 th grader, Kipper Sherlock , was invited to sing the National Anthem to begin the opening ceremonies at the annual SDG&E employee meeting on Friday, September 27. The event hosted approximately 500 SDG&E employees whose responsibilities ranged from front line workers to top SDG&E executives from all across the San Diego area.  Congrats on the honor, Kipper. May you always use your God-given talents with humility and courage. 
Making A Difference
E ach year throughout the US, 600 communities sponsor an event called Walk to End Alzheimer's. On September 28, 4th grader Payton Chambers and her family were participants in the North County San Diego Alzheimer's Walk held in Kit Carson Park. The walk raises money to fund research on this disease. For Payton and her family, this is a very personal cause because her Grandmother has Alzheimer's. However, Payton was so happy that Gammie could be present at the Walk. Thanks to the family and friends who helped Team, Gammie's Cupcake, take 2nd place and earn a total of $7,139. Thank YOU, Payton, for showing us God's love through your commitment to service for others!

The Davis Principles

Hawks Family,

I was reminded today at our morning prayer time how amazing God's plans are for us. In 1 Peter 4:10, it says - " God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another."

Each of our students is gifted in a unique and special way. So many times we all try and put our kids into a mold that was not designed for them. The beauty of God's creation is that there are no two that are exactly the same. We are all "fearfully and wonderfully made" in our own unique way.

As we work together to help our students explore and discover the gifts that God has given them, let's allow them to shine for His glory.

Family Focus
I once saw a T-Shirt that read "Parenting Is The Toughest Job You Will Ever Love." As a parent, there have been times when I have been faced with situations that have left me wondering how to help my children become independent and self-confident young adults, but also give them guidance to avoid some of the pitfalls that can derail that growth. Periodically, I will include a link to an article that I feel might be particularly helpful.

Bill Davis, EAA Principal

This article from Focus on the Family has some great thoughts on How to Connect with Young Teens .
