Our school has achieved Lighthouse Status through The Leader in Me program based on Dr. Stephen Covey's, The 7 Habits of Happy Kids. (*Note: An 8th habit has been added.) All students from Preschool through 6th grade live the following habits each day:
Habit 1: Be Proactive
Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind
Habit 3: Put First Things First
Habit 4: Think Win-Win
Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood
Habit 6: Synergize
Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw
Habit 8: Find your Voice
We have read stories, learned songs, poems, and gestures, and done activities to help the children learn these habits and what they mean. Now, we simply imbed the language in lessons and conversations we have with the students. The students are using this language as well. Ask your child how he or she uses the 8 habits each day. You will be impressed!
