Leader in Me
The Leader in Me framework is implemented in all district elementary schools. Leader in Me teaches leadership and life skills to students and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every student can be a leader. The process teaches students the skills needed for academic success in any setting by focusing on leadership, culture, and academics. By integrating these three components, we will see highly effective students who are leaders in their school and community and equipped to achieve their full potential.
Be proactive. Begin with the end in mind. Think win-win.
These are some of the 7 Habits of Happy Kids that are taught in all of our elementary schools as part of Leader In Me, which is also in early implementation in our middle schools.
The program focuses on three components, Leadership, Culture, and Academics. Through Leader in Me and the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, our goal is to build leadership and life skills in our students, create high-trust school culture, and lay a foundation for continuous academic achievement and growth.
