The Shepherd Leadership Institute is open to first through sixth grade students who desire to learn how to be effective leaders at home, at school, and in the community. The Institute focuses on building character, responsibility, self-confidence, communication skills, and social skills.

This character development program promotes Biblical character school wide, with one “Fruit of the Spirit”  being emphasized each month. Morning announcements focus on these Biblical virtues, and teachers follow up with classroom discussions and devotions. Students in grades 1-6 who have been noticed for displaying one of these virtues by a teacher or staff member, will be recognized during Friday afternoon announcements and awarded a “Fruit of the Spirit” card.

August/September – Self-Control; October – Goodness; November – Peace; December – Joy;
January – Kindness; February – Love; March – Patience; April – Gentleness; May – Faithfulness

Students in fourth through sixth grades are eligible and may be selected for membership by their teacher, based on the following criteria: 1) have been enrolled at CMDS for at least one semester, 2) maintained a B average for two straight semesters (including “A” conduct grades & “E” Encore grades), 3) have demonstrated personal responsibility at home, at school, and in the community.
