We would like to cordially invite middle school age students to Peoria Academy’s 6th Annual Global Leadership Summit.  This year our theme is YOUR LIFE IN CYBERSPACE:  NOW AND 4EVR.  The Summit will take place Friday, April 28th from 8:15 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the Peoria Academy Gymnasium.

The Global Leadership Summit (“GLS”) is an annual event organized and hosted by the Peoria Academy International Families Committee (“IFC”) and Peoria Academy’s Middle School.  Peoria Academy invites middle school student ambassadors from all over the greater Peoria and Central Illinois regions to engage in its summit to learn about and discuss current topics especially relevant to its own aspiring student leaders.

Each annual summit is designed to promote global awareness, foster global and innovative thinking, and to promote intellectual engagement with cutting edge issues relevant to motivated middle school students.   The 2017 Global Leadership Summit is designed to help them navigate the challenges of using social media and networking sites as well as understand information online.   Guest speakers will discuss how their digital footprints will affect their future (from college admission to workplace) as well as discuss how to develop positive online presence and staying safe online.  Students will also engage in group activities to explore internet safety.

Each school will have the opportunity to send six student ambassadors from sixth through eighth grade to participate in the GLS.    All other middle-school aged students from non-traditional schools are also invited.    Based on our past years’ GLS attendance and our strong GLS programming, we anticipate maximum attendance and strongly encourage you to fill out and submit the registration form before March 24, 2017 to ensure participation.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me at Peoria Academy or Zenaida Bartelme.

Very truly yours,
