Leaders Under Construction
We will be building our leadership and life skills this year through love, laughter, learning, and leading. South Mebane is a proud Leader in Me school!
The Leader in Me is Franklin Covey’s whole school transformation process. It teaches 21st century leadership and life skills to students and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader. Students will learn The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People through work in their Leader in Me handbooks, videos and activities. The first three habits (1-3) "start with me" and then the next three (4-6) are focused on "play well with others." Habit 7 is all about taking care of yourself. The classroom posters for The 7 Habits are pictured below! By hearing the same language at home and at school, you send the children a strong message of what you believe is important and that we are all on the same team—the team that wants to help them succeed. I truly believe when parents and schools support one another, the sky is the limit!
Here is a link to a Parent's Guide for Leader in Me. Here is a link to Student Schoolyard – Fun and engaging interactive activities for students that reinforce the 7 habits principles.
