Leader in Me

Parkwood Middle School is excited to announce that this year all students will be participating in the Leader in Me Initiative.

Leader in Me is a whole-school improvement model based off of Dr. Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Habits such as Be Proactive, Begin With The End In Mind, and Put First Things First, which successful leaders possess. 

The lessons taught during students’ Bear Block this year will help teach students leadership and life skills necessary to be successful in the classroom and in the world. Teachers will help students find their voices and realize their potential to be leaders in their school, family, and community. The Leader in Me curriculum will allow us to create a culture of student empowerment here at Parkwood Middle over the course of the next few years!

Another key part of the Leader in Me program is family engagement. In addition to talking to your students about what they’ve learned, feel free to visit the Leader in Me Parent’s Guide by following this link:
