Leader Board

Leader Board

One of the biggest changes in second semester is having Jupiter class being added to our unique ILH Leader Board.

What is the Leader Board?

Our school goes through a rotation every week, and a few students are chosen at a time to be that week’s leaders. The leaders are broken up into categories: Group Leaders, Teacher Helpers, Room Leaders, Daily Leaders, News Leaders, and Outside Leaders.

Under each category, the leaders each have various responsibilities.

Group Leaders

Lead Radio Taiso every morning and head up the lines

Teacher Helpers

Bring the role call sheet to the teacher, take care of the lunch box coolers, and help feed the fish

Room Leaders

Set up chairs for lunch, wipe off tables, and sweep floors

Daily Leaders

Lead morning and afternoon greetings and Show & Tell, and organize the library

News Leaders

Announce weather, the day, month, and day of month in the morning

Outside Leaders

Water the plants, pick up leaves or flowers, and clean up the sandbox toys

Teachers help make sure each Leader knows what job they have, and give commands in both English and Japanese. This helps Leaders each week to practice using everyday phrases in both languages.

Because Jupiters had all of first term to watch Saturn and Mercury classes take on Leader Board responsibilities, they all should know what is expected of them as they join from second term.

Not only does this help Jupiters participate more in our daily life at school, the Leader Board teaches life skills to also use at home, and brings out a stronger sense of responsibility from within.
