The Cinderella Project is an organization that collects gently used prom and dance dresses for girls who are not able to afford one on their own.
The girls are recommended to The Cinderella Project by their high school counselors. Once recommended, the girls are able to go to the boutique that is set up by The Cinderella Project to pick out a beautiful dress and accessories for their big day.
To date, Rockwood has come together and donated well over 800 dresses. Help us make girls all over the St. Louis Area's dreams come true!
COLLECTION DAY: NOW UNTIL FEBRUARY 10th
Bring to school's front office for pick up! Dresses can still be donated after this date and will be used for next year's Cinderella Project. Any Questions? Email: firstname.lastname@example.org

For nearly 20 years, students from around the state have come together to be immersed in leadership activities and simulations led by civic, business and education leaders at Leadership In Practice, a statewide leadership development program.
The Leadership In Practice program was developed by the Missouri Chamber Foundation to engage Missouri high school students in hands on, real world leadership training. The program is divided into five areas: global leadership, civic leadership, economic leadership, ethical leadership and personal leadership. The key to the training is that students learn by participating in small group discussions, activities and simulations. The students are mentored by experienced business, civic and education leaders from across the state, imparting real world knowledge to help guide their development during the forum. Students evaluate their leadership skills based on what they learn and then set goals on how to improve those skills during the rest of their High School career.
A 2014 graduate summed the program up best-
“I thought the program was an amazing experience. I have already started putting the lessons learned into action in my community and hope to achieve greater things in the near future!”
– Maddison, Warrenton High School, ‘14
The 2017 Leadership In Practice program is set for June 25-28, 2017. The application period will run from January 1, 2017 to April 1, 2017.
