My Students

Our elementary campus serves Pre-k through 5th grade students. We are a campus that practices the Leader in Me program, based on Steven Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

Our students are true leaders at school and at home.

It's a way of life that everyone at our school practices, from administration and staff, to our youngest students.

The skills they learn through the Leader in Me program carry over into academics as the students learn to set and reach goals, be accountable for their actions, and plan for the future!

My Project

As part of a Leader in Me Lighthouse School, our students set reading and math goals for the year.

Goal setting teaches our students to be great leaders and helps them to be self-motivated in their learning.

Our goals are based on completing online reading and math lessons. These lessons help them build their reading fluency and math skills. My students need more devices in order for everyone to have opportunities to work on their lessons. As students complete these lessons and track their progress, we not only see academic growth, but the students also become more excited about learning!
