Building Leaders of the Future

My students need 25 copies of the book called "The 7 Habits for Happy Kids" and 1 copy of The 7 Habits of Happy Kids game.

My Students

Children are not born with life and social skills. These skills are modeled and purposefully taught. I am requesting a class set of "The 7 Habits of Happy Kids" by Sean Covey. This is the children's version of "7 Habits of Highly Effective People" by Stephen Covey.

Our school shirts state that our school R.O.C.K.S!

R.O.C.K.S. stands for Respecting Others with Compassion, Kindness and Service. Our staff is committed to a collaborative effort to create a community environment where education is valued and successes are celebrated. We are dedicated to the academic, social and emotional education of our students and strive to teach our students positive leadership skills. Our school is diversified in economic and student population.

My Project

I am requesting 25 copies of the book called "The 7 Habits for Happy Kids" and 1 copy of The 7 Habits of Happy Kids game. I would use these books to conduct class book studies that would cross the curriculum in reading, citizenship and writing skills. Additionally, the books would serve as a staff resource for individual teacher check-out. The book contains academically enriched vocabulary and incorporates higher critical thinking skills. Most importantly, it introduces positive character traits that employers value in their work force. The character traits included in this book are: Ch. 1:Be Proactive (& accepting responsibility) Ch. 2 Begin with the End in Mind (vision, goal setting and planning) Ch. 3 Put First Things First (work first, then play) Ch. 4 Think Win-Win (compromise) Ch. 5 Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood Ch. 6 Synergize (valuing differences and then working together to create a better solution than anyone could alone)

Our school strives to create a learning community where "we get smarter every day" and become effective and positive leaders.

Your support would help us build the leaders of tomorrow that will lead them to future success! Thank you for giving your consideration to this proposal.
