Leader In Me

ALMERIA MIDDLE SCHOOL

Empowering the Leader in Me        

Dear Families,

Almeria Middle School is proud to be a Leader in Me school.  In our second year, we believe that the Leader in Me program has a profound effect on the staff, scholars and community of our school.  Through the Leader in Me program, our middle school scholars are taught and practice the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.  The program empowers young people to make positive, effective and responsible choices by introducing and reinforcing the 7 Habits, a set of leadership and life skills from Stephen Covey’s book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.  The Leader in Me program is an introduction to personal leadership.  The Leader in Me program provides scholars with activities that will help them learn practical character and life skills that will lead to positive choices.  When taught in a school environment, these 7 habits have been proven to improve academic engagement, comprehension and performance.  They help to improve scholar performance and support school success by helping to foster the  qualities of independence (goal-setting, organization, time management, planning) interdependence (teamwork, conflict management, creativity and analytical skills) and renewal (fun, desire to learn, good health).

As we continue into our second year, the staff at Almeria continues their 7 Habits training and has made the commitment to model and implement the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People in order to provide a caring and nurturing learning environment for our scholars.  We know that no matter where life takes our young scholars, these are habits and skills that will last a lifetime.

We are excited about this journey and look forward to our new year together!
