Crack the Code to Leadership

Country Heights Elementary STLP (Student Technology Leadership Program) is CRACKING THE CODE TO LEADERSHIP! CHES has created a fun an innovated way to learn Stephen Covey's 7 Habits. Country Heights is a Leader in Me school and we use our leadership skills to become better students and citizens. We have created QR codes to link to this website. Members of CHES STLP used Microsoft PowerPoint to create a presentation for each habit below. Click on each picture to see the PowerPoint. Students also used other Microsoft Office programs to create bookmarks, name tags, and a brochure. Two students created a Keynote presentation using an IPad to give families an idea of how they can use the habits at home.

STLP Members: Katie Abell, Caleb Thomas Matt DuFrayne, Maddy Howard, Claire Fischer, Bella Sailors, Bailey Wurth, Xavier Wilson, Lauren Benningfield, Tori Askins, Avery Cordero, and Cassie Yeckering

Leadership Showcase was AMAZING!!!!

Thank you to Mrs. Campbell for organizing such an AMAZING night for our kids and families. Tonight was our first ever Leadership Showcase to show how our students have grown in their leadership skills in all areas. We had leadership clubs, student leaders at each door greeting families, a photo booth, the computer lab set up, and free drink koozies for everyone with the 7 Habits on it. Below is a picture of the koozie. I forgot to bring all the cameras home tonight to put pictures on the blog but I promise to do that this weekend sometime.

I know we have many new members of our blog. This is a great place for you to comment and let CHES know what you want to see here and what you think about things that are happening at CHES.

Join us for our FIRST Leadership Day!!!!!

Leadership day is a special opportunity for our school to open our doors to the community to show off the great things that are happening. Through implementing The Leader in Me process we have built a unique environment where the principles, practices, and habits of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People® are embedded into our culture. The Leader in Me process defines our school operations, permeates instructional practice and curriculum, and is the basis of a vibrant leadership development approach for both students and staff. Attend our first annual leadership day to be immersed in our leadership culture with presentations from students, teachers and open-house-like visits to classrooms. You will receive lunch, great ideas, and a USB drive filled with materials to help you teach 7 Habits lessons.
