Leader In Me!

  • Cleo Gordon Elementary 
    is a
    Leader In Me School!
    "The Leader in Me is FranklinCovey’s whole school transformation process. It 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." 

    Content from The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is a key component of The Leader in Me. The 7 Habits is a combination of universal, timeless principles of personal and interpersonal effectiveness, such as responsibility, vision, integrity, teamwork, collaboration and renewal, which are secular in nature and common to all people and cultures. Here’s how the 7 Habits are taught to students in an age-appropriate format within The Leader in Me process:

    Be Proactive classroom poster

    Habit 1 — Be Proactive

    You're in Charge: I am a responsible person. I take initiative. I choose my actions, attitudes, and moods. I do not blame others for my wrong actions. I do the right thing without being asked, even when no one is looking.

    Begin with the end in mind classroom poster

    Habit 2 — Begin with the End in Mind

    Have a Plan: I plan ahead and set goals. I do things that have meaning and make a difference. I am an important part of my classroom and contribute to my school’s mission and vision. I look for ways to be a good citizen.

    Put first things first classroom poster

    Habit 3 — Put First Things First

    Work First, Then Play: I spend my time on things that are most important. This means I say no to things I know I should not do. I set priorities, make a schedule, and follow my plan. I am disciplined and organized.

    Think win-win classroom poster

    Habit 4 — Think Win-Win

    Everyone Can Win: I balance courage for getting what I want with consideration for what others want. I make deposits in others’ Emotional Bank Accounts. When conflicts arise, I look for third alternatives.

    Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood classroom poster

    Habit 5 — Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood

    Listen Before You Talk: I listen to other people’s ideas and feelings. I try to see things from their viewpoints. I listen to others without interrupting. I am confident in voicing my ideas. I look people in the eyes when talking.

    Synergize classroom poster

    Habit 6 — Synergize

    Together Is Better: I value other people’s strengths and learn from them. I get along well with others, even people who are different than me. I work well in groups. I seek out other people’s ideas to solve problems because I know that by teaming with others we can create better solutions than anyone of us can alone. I am humble.

    Sharpen the Saw classroom poster

    Habit 7 — Sharpen The Saw

    Balance Feels Best: I take care of my body by eating right, exercising and getting sleep. I spend time with family and friends. I learn in lots of ways and lots of places, not just at school. I find meaningful ways to help others.


    “We only get one chance to prepare children for a world none of us can possibly predict, what are we going to do with that one chance?”

    —Principal Muriel Summers,  A.B. Combs Elementary

    What is the
    Morning Walk?!
    The Morning Walk is a time for our families and students to come together! From 8:15-8:25 is our time to walk as a group and receive morning announcements. Parents and friends are welcome to join us on the walk.
    For 1st- 5th grade, the 8:25 am school bell will ring and our Physical Education minutes will begin. From 8:25 to 8:30 all students are required to attend PE.  
     Kindergarten and Transitional Kindergarten will walk from 8:15- 8:25 on the smaller playground and when the bell rings they will line up by class. At that time, students will enter their classrooms.
