Principal's message

February 2017

Dear Parents,
Each week our students have been participating in a part of the morning we call DEAL Time.  It stands for Drop Everything And Lead.  This is the time where our staff and students learn about a specific Habit, hold a class meeting, review their own progress towards meeting their learning goals, demonstrate team building, and more.
DEAL time this February will focus on Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood. Habit 5 means we try to completely understand another person before presenting our own point of view.  It means balancing courage and consideration and expressing our views with clarity and respect.  This habit really comes down to listening first, then speaking.
Habit 5 fits in perfectly with February's celebration of Kindness Month, teaching and showing acts of kindess and Black History Month, which recognizes and celebrates the contributions of African-Americans to our nation’s culture and history.  We all need to remember to teach the basics of being a great person and to be kind to each other no matter the color of our skin, ethnic bacground, or point of view.  Many classes celebrated the accomplishments of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in January and tied his accomplishments to The Leader in Me.  This month we are continuing to integrate this type of information into our curriuculum so our students are aware of these important moments and contributions to our Country's history and how leaders truly make a difference.

The Leader in Me is a process of school and personal effectiveness based on timeless universal principles of leadership revolving around Stephen R. Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.  It teaches leadership and life skills to staff, students, and families around the idea that every child and every adult can be an effective leader in all aspects of their lives.  As we live the 7 Habits, staff and students utilize their talents to improve the school, their home, and their community.  The more we are involved in leadership, the more ownership we all will take in making our world a better place.  Ultimately, The Leader in Me empowers each of us to be self-confident and self-reliant or independent, able to work effectively with others or interdependent, and able to make meaningful contributions wherever we choose to go in life.

Osceola School District Celebrating
Kindness Month
On February 24, 2017 several staff members from NCES shared kindness with members of the community as they dropped off their children to school.  As they held up signs with inspirational messages, parents and drivers going by the school honked their horns, waved back, gave them a "thumbs up", and said thank you for starting their day out on a positive note.  A huge thank you to all of the Narcoossee Elementary staff for continuing to spread and share random acts of kindness.  Let's keep this going and spread kindness through our district and community.
