Principal's message

January 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 January will focus on Habit 4: Think Win-Win. Habit 4 is the habit of mutual benefit, fairness, and abundance.  Win-Win is a frame of mind and heart that seeks mutual benefit in all human interactions.  It's based on the paradigm that there's plenty for everybody - that one person's success is not achieved at the expense of others.  When we have an Abundance Mentality we are not threatened by others' success because we are secure in our own self-worth, which comes from achieving the Private Victory (Habits 1, 2, and 3).  When we are highly effective, we value other people's wins equally to our own.  We take time to identify both our wins and their wins.  Be sure to create those Win-Win Agreements with people at school, home, and work.  Commit to work that benefits each other as well as yourself. 
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.
