The Leader in Me


The Leader in Me
Willard South Elementary is a Leader in Me School. Our journey began in 2016-2017.  The Leader in me is based on the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey.  The Leader in Me is the process of taking those habits and integrating them into the school culture to support the students in becoming confident, responsible, and self-disciplined.  We invite families to learn about and incorporate the Habits at home as well as school.  This partnership will ensure the same language is used and integrated into daily routines.

We hope families will enjoy utilizing this powerful tool of the 7 Habits.  These timeless concepts, and the Leader in Me program, are proven and successful for adults and children throughout the world.  We want to support your family in finding the value in the Habits as well.
