New School Shirts

We wanted a way to communicate our Leader In Me habits to our families. We visited many schools while learning about Leader In Me and one of the schools (I can't remember which one) made t-shirts with the 7 Habits and gave every child a shirt. This way, parents would see the habits while they did the laundry weekly. We thought this was a great idea and made our shirts.  You can see below. Let us know what you think about our shirts. Our mascot is the husky so we used the paw print. Does your school have shirts to communicate Leader In Me???? If so, we'd love to showcase them on our blog.

We are also going to have 2 transformation days at our school in July to add quotes to our walls, put up the 7 Habits paintings, and to make our school a Leadership school. I'm excited to share pictures of our process. We'd love to see pictures of your school. If you are a Leader In Me school, please leave a comment so we can visit your blog or website to see how you have transformed your school.

Our Journey Begins

Our school is just beginning as a  Leader in Me school based on work by Stephen Covey. I hope that this blog will be a useful tool for teachers to find resources and ideas for how to implement the 7 habits. We just had our Vision Training and we are all excited to re-invent our school so that we can help our kids become leaders. Below are pictures of our staff in our new school t-shirts which have the 7 habits on the back. The rest are pictures of our Vision Training.

Please comment and let me know if your school is implementing the Leader in Me and if you have a blog or website. I'd love to add other blogs to my blog list. So far, the only 2 blogs listed are mine and my teaching partner's blog. We will be updating and managing this blog together.
