My Students

I'm fortunate to be part of a school that strives for excellence. We meet students' needs with rigorous teaching strategies, and we expect only the best from our students.

My school is proud to be a Leader in Me school that works on taking the 7 habits of author Steven Covey, making them age-appropriate, and working them into our school campus so that students begin to see their campus as a way to show leadership.

Leader in Me is not a curriculum but rather a way of doing life on the school campus through awareness of how we learn and grow, and how we speak and treat one another.

Students learn the habit of solving conflicts, and then they become conflict managers. This is just one way the Leader in Me program looks on our campus. Students take the 7 Habits that are taught to them and begin to think of ways they can take ownership of their campus through leadership. Whether it's a 5th grader helping a 1st grader to read, students setting goals and overcoming academic obstacles, or students seeing a need to clean their campus, these are all ways that the 7 Habits teach students to lead.

My Project

Each school year, our school is honored to plan a Family Literacy Night. Students are so excited for this event. Families come together and show school spirit, by spending the evening supporting their child and the love of reading. Last year, we had a theme of camping, and set up fun stations that involved literacy and theme of camping. Students loved having their families there to show around, and it brought unity among our school family.

This school year, we are going to do another Family Literacy Night.

I am requesting a variety of leveled books. Each child who attends will receive a book to have and take home with them. How exciting! Also, we have already a popcorn machine, but I am requesting popcorn bags to fill with popcorn for each child to have, along with popcorn kernels to make sure we have enough popcorn for everyone! This evening is going to be so much fun, and instill a love of reading into each of our students!
