Elementary Parent Guide to Leader In Me

Take the lead at home by teaching and modeling the LEADER IN ME principles your child is learning in the classroom. As such, we are excited to share this parent guide so you can help reinforce what is happening at school. The Leader in Me program empowers young people to make positive, effective, and responsible choices by introducing and reinforcing the 7 Habits, a set of leadership and life skills from Stephen Covey’s book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. These habits have proven effective at improving student performance and supporting school success by helping to foster the qualities of independence (goal-setting, organization, time management, and planning); interdependence (teamwork, conflict management, creativity, and analytical skills); and renewal (fun, desire to learn, and good health & hygiene).
