Bear Creek Students honored as January’s Leader In Me Students of the Month

January 10, 2020- Twenty-five students from the Bear Creek School were recently recognized as January’s Leader In Me Students of the Month. As a Leader In Me school, the students are learning The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Students, which are built around acclaimed author Stephen R. Covey’s The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

The Leader in Me program focuses on helping students learn to develop healthy relationships with peers and make responsible decisions, thus creating an environment that supports not only academic learning but also social and emotional learning and future success as adults in our communities. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Students are as follows:

  • Synergize - Together Is Better
