ACES seeks community support implementing Leader in Me
An Open Letter from Steve Burton, Principal and the Adair County Elementary ACES) School Faculty, informing the community of its plans for the year with the Leader in Me program, asking parents and the community to become familiar with the program's principles to be prepared to talk with their students at home. Some new terms and phrases are expected to become a party of familyspeak all over Adair County during the exciting year ahead.
Dear Community: Adair County Elementary School would like to welcome you to join us on our new exciting journey. We are getting ready to begin a school transformation by implementing Stephen Covey's Leader in Me program.
The Leader in Me is a whole-school transformation model based on the principles of Stephen Covey that acts like the operating system of a computer-- it improves the performance of all other programs.
Based on Mr. Covey's The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, The Leader in Me produces transformational results such as higher academic achievement, fewer discipline problems, and increased engagement among teachers and parents. Better yet, The Leader in Me equips students with the self-confidence and skills they need to thrive and succeed in the 21st century economy.
We are so excited about welcoming you to begin our journey with us. At Adair County Elementary School, we plan on using this model and its ideas to become who we are as a school.
The 7 Habits consists of the following:
Your child will be coming home using words such as Synergize and being Proactive along with other terminology from the 7 Habits. Rest assured the love, care, and academic achievement of your child will still be our main focus.
However, we believe that using these 7 Habits to enhance our curriculum and promote leadership qualities in each student will better prepare our students and your children to succeed in their futures. Once again, we welcome you to join us, as a community, in our new journey. Sincerely, ACES FACULTY AND STAFF
