Temple Heights wrote and received a multi-year grant to implement the "Leader in Me" program which is based on the Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Dr. Stephen Covey. The program teaches 21st century leadership and life skills to students and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader. We value supporting the social and emotional well-being of each child. This program seeks to understand the strengths, interests and values of every student. We will celebrate these strengths to build leaders and create programs that tap into the talents of our students.

We will build a school-wide culture based on these seven habits and implement a common language that seeks community and confidence in all. Parent workshops will be offered throughout the year so families can learn about the habits being practiced at school. We welcome you to attend and learn!

Seven Habits:

  1. Be proactive
  2. Begin with the end in mind
  3. Put first things first
  4. Think win-win
  5. Seek first to understand, then to be understood
  6. Synergize
