Leader In Me

Based on Steven Covey's The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, the Leader in Me program promotes social and emotional learning for our students through seven practices, or habits, that empower students with leadership and life skills needed to thrive in the 21st century. It is based upon the premise that every child possesses unique strengths and has the ability to be a leader. Students develop the skills and self-confidence needed to lead their lives and succeed in school and beyond.
