We are excited to
announce that we have implemented The 7
Habits of Happy Kids by Sean Covey and Have
You Filled a Bucket Today? A Guide to Daily Happiness for Kids by Carol
McCloud, to support our character education program this year. These resources will help us create a common
language about behavioral expectations while building intra and interpersonal
skills that all students will use throughout their lives.
All students are excited to post paws on the
7 Habits bulletin boards and SYNERGIZE to earn a school spirit day. Students are learning the value of all of the
7 Habits, BE PROACTIVE, BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND, PUT FIRST THINGS FIRST,
THINK WIN-WIN, SEEK FIRST TO UNDERSTAND THEN BE UNDERSTOOD, SYNERGIZE, and
SHARPEN THE SAW. Many parents are
already seeing a cross-over of the 7 Habits into students’ relationships and
self-efficacy at home. Implementing this
program has started out as a WIN-WIN!
