This is a school wide initiative based on the Franklin Covey’s7 Habits of Highly Effective People. It teaches 21
st century leadership and life skills to students and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader.

The 7 Habits is a synthesis of universal, timeless principles of personal and interpersonal effectiveness, such as responsibility, vision, integrity, teamwork, collaboration and renewal; which are secular in nature and common to all people and cultures. The Leader in Me is also aligned to many national and state academic standards. The process teaches students the skills needed for academic success in any setting. These skills include critical thinking, goal setting, listening and speaking, self-directed learning, presentation-making and the ability to work in groups.
